Gigi looked beyond gorgeous in a stunning red dress, while Jay looked super snazzy in a purple suit! “Everyone looks so beautiful tonight,” she told the crowd before they took the stage. “But don’t worry, guys… tonight, we don’t have to worry about the electoral college!” she joked, as the audience erupted in laughter. “Green Day’s performing, and a white guy is president!” Jay quipped, once again totally cracking us up. Then, the supermodel made us totally LOL when she told us she’d be doing her first impression — Melania Trump! “I love my husband!” she joked as Melania in her accent. Jay then did his own impression of the president-elect, giving Alec Baldwin a run for his money! They ended the opener with their own stellar version of the viral meme beans, greens and potatoes! TOO funny!
Seriously, Gigi did such an incredible job hosting that we don’t even know why she was nervous in the first place! As HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY told you, she was so nervous to host the highly-anticipated awards show. Luckily, her boyfriend Zayn Malik helped her through her pre-show jitters! “Zayn is no stranger to panic attacks and he’s giving her tips on mediation and breathing techniques to do before and during the show,” our source told us. She also leaned on her ‘rock’ Chrissy Teigen! “Gigi has been calling her night and day for pep talks and Chrissy seems to know just what to say,” another insider told us. ” And since she’s going to be a presenter, she can hold her hand backstage again.”
