Pauly D To Cohost 2012 mtvU Woodie Awards Special

If, like us, you're still sorting through bitterness over missing all the SXSW goodness that swept through Austin, Texas, this week--particularly, the 2012 mtvU Woodie Awards--have no fear. A half-hour special outlining the show's best performances and biggest upsets will air Sunday night at 8/7c on MTV and mtvU, and Pauly D, the "Jersey Shore" standout expertly familiar with hyping a crowd, will act as half of your proud tour guide.

The Hard Rock Hotel's resident DJ will join beat queen Dev in breaking down the award show's most memorable moments, including performances by Santigold and Mac Miller. Plus, the duo has collected feedback from Mike Posner, Cobra Starship and Kat Graham, who will share their hopes for the best and brightest new artists. And if that's not enough to quench your thirst for up-and-comers, Pauly, the newest member of G-Unit, will, himself, spin for your audio pleasure.

+ Make sure to tune in to the show this Sunday, March 18, on MTV and mtvU, and get pumped for "The Pauly D Project," which premieres Thursday, March 29, at 10:30/9:30c.
