Record-setting swimming star Michael Phelps, who was ubiquitous both in official Olympics coverage and in advertisements, will get even more TV face time in the next few weeks.
The U.S. swimmer, who won a record eight gold medals at the Beijing Olympics, will be a presenter at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, organizers announced Thursday.
Other celebrities slated to help hand out MTV's Moonman hardware at the Sept. 7 gala in Los Angeles include Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, Ciara, and actors from the High School Musical franchise and upcoming film Twilight.
Taking the stage to perform will be acts such as Katy Perry, T-Pain, Rihanna, Pink, T.I., The Jonas Brothers and Lil Wayne.
About a week later, on Sept. 13, "Phelps Phans" will be treated to another side of the 23-year-old when he hosts the season premiere episode of Saturday Night Live.
Producers announced Wednesday that Phelps would host the first show of SNL's 34th season, with Lil Wayne to appear as the evening's musical guest.
Last week, a U.S. publisher announced that Phelps will pen a book revealing the story behind his amazing performance at the Olympics, his philosophies on training and competitions, as well as on his childhood growing up in a single-parent family.
The book, tentatively called Built to Succeed, is slated for release in December.
