Bret Michaels tells exclusively that he couldn't be more thrilled to be co-hosting Miss Universe 2010.

"I am honored Donald Trump has asked me to co-host the 2010 Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas alongside my friend and ever so hot Natalie Morales," he tells Us.

In April, the rocker, 47, suffered a brain hemorrhage and stroke.

"I realize it is a controversial decision for Mr. Trump to have a rocker like myself with little filter to host such a prestigious event," Michaels tells Us. "However, Donald Trump knows that I will bring 150 percent and make the evening a rocking good time."

The real stars of the night?

"The more than 80 of the world's most beautiful, glamorous and talented women," Michaels tells Us. "I know the competitive level for these women is going to be extremely high knowing that one of them is going to be crowned Miss Universe. It will be awesome to be a part of it. Besides, what could possibly go wrong? A rock star in a room full of beautiful women is bound to be entertaining."

The pageant airs Aug. 23 on NBC live from Las Vegas.
