The actress is set to host the award show this Sunday, and the way she sees it, she’s perfect for the gig.
“I feel like I can make us laugh and have fun and forget our differences,” Taraji explained on Friday, Nov. 20’s Daily Pop. “I did a movie that did that in one of the most tumultuous times in history, Hidden Figures. It brought us together in a different way.”
She continued, “[I’m] not saying that I’m the savior, but I certainly have a personality that I think people can, you know, get!”
However, there’s one performance in particular that Taraji’s most excited to see.
BTS, of course!
Fresh off the release of their latest studio album BE, the K-Pop sensation will perform their record-breaking track “Dynamite” and their new single “Life Goes On.”
“They are the hottest thing going on right now,” Taraji told E! co-host Justin Sylvester. “It’s crazy how [fans] pass out and faint and scream. I haven’t seen anything like that since New Edition.”
Like everyone else,
