The Tony Awards are gonna be fierce this year.

We can exclusively report that show host Whoopi Goldberg will be wearing a design by Project Runway winner Christian Siriano on the big night.

"I am dressing Whoopi Goldberg for the Tonys," Siriano revealed the other night at the Declare Yourself and American Eagle celebrity T-shirt launch in Los Angeles.

Reps for the Tonys and Goldberg confirmed Siriano's latest gig.

The Tonys will be handed out at Radio City Hall in New York City June 15 and telecast live on CBS.

Meanwhile, the New York Daily News reported yesterday that Goldberg has gotten the Big Apple's mayor, Michael Bloomberg, to tape a bit for the show. "He's my friend, and who better to start the night than the mayor of New York City?" Goldberg told the News.
