HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — The X-Rated Critics Organization has announced that Wicked Pictures contract performer Jessica Drake and Adam & Eve contract performer Kayden Kross will host the 25th Annual XRCO Awards.

“The XRCO Awards have always been one of my favorite shows,” Drake said. “Now that I've been chosen to be a host along with Kayden, I’m sure it will be a night to remember."

Kross is enthusiastic about the assignment as well.

“I'm so excited to be hosting this year's XRCO Awards," Kross said. "It is an honor to have been chosen as hostess for such a well-respected and ever-growing event. I am really looking forward to seeing the best of the best of the adult industry on such a special night.”

Drake and Kross will be joined on stage by Heart-On Girls Amber Lynn Bach and XRCO Hall of Famer Amber Lynn.

“In keeping with the original spirit and intent of the XRCO, the Heart-On Girl — Trophy Girl — is traditionally someone relatively new to the business,” XRCO Co-Chair Dirty Bob said. “Being the special 25th Anniversary XRCO Awards Show, we are going one step further with two — with a twist. One will be Amber Lynn, who was the first Heart-On Girl 25 years ago, and the other trophy girl will be Amber Lynn Bach, a busty, bubbly MILFish new girl in the business”

The 2009 XRCO Awards will take place on April 16 at Hollywood Highlands at the Hollywood and Highland Center in Hollywood, Calif. The show is for adult industry professionals only and is free. Admittance is based on recognition at the door, or via RSVP to no later than April 10.

Founded in 1984, the XRCO was formed to give writers and editors from the adult entertainment industry a voice in selecting the best and brightest in the world of adult cinema. Original members included writers from Los Angeles, New York and Philadelphia. Over the years, membership has expanded to include well-respected Internet writers and in 2005, the XRCO welcomed its first European members. XBIZ writers Tod Hunter and Buzz Killington are members of the organization.

Sponsorships for the 2009 XRCO Awards are still available. Contact brad@bthomashollywood.coml for more information.
