Through the use of cutting-edge technology, Jimmy Kimmel will host the show “cross-country” on Country Music’s Biggest Night®. On Wednesday, November 5, the late night host will be live in Hollywood, California while simultaneously being transported to Nashville, Tennessee via hologram.
To celebrate “The 48th Annual CMA Awards,” Jimmy Kimmel Live will broadcast via Hologram to a live audience at the CMA Theater in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. Using technology from Hologram USA, Kimmel’s monologue will be beamed to the Nashville stage. His first guest, Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”) will be an in-studio guest in Hollywood while his second guest will be an unannounced CMA Award winner from that evening’s event who will be interviewed as a hologram by Jimmy on stage in Hollywood. The show will also feature a musical performance from reigning CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Florida Georgia Line from Nashville that will also be hologrammed to Hollywood, California as if live on Kimmel’s outdoor stage for his studio audience.
This special CMA Awards episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, sponsored by Crown Royal Regal Apple Whisky, will also feature appearances by CMA Awards nominees and Country Music royalty Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and CMA Awards Co-Host Brad Paisley.
