MTV’s Video Music Awards is a wonderful night celebrating some of the most influential, talented and hard working artists in the music industry today. In celebration of the visuals to these artist’s songs, celebrities come in different shapes and forms to ultimately celebrate the one thing they live for – music. While the award show started in 1984 as an alternative to the prestigious Grammy Awards, over the years the VMA’s have created a name for itself. Through performance, red carpet fashion and spontaneous, unplanned moments the MTV Video Music Awards has become what it is today! Below are 10 reasons that you won’t want to miss tonight’s ceremony!
10. Robin Think will be performing his summer smash-hit, “Blurred Lines”, along side rapper, T.I. and producer, Pharrell Williams.
9. This year’s Video Music Award Ceremony will be held at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for the first time in VMA history!
8. Miley Cyrus will be bringing her party song, “We Can’t Stop” to life. Judging on the wacky tacky music video, which earned her four nominations, who knows what to expect!
7. The MTV Video Music Awards are known for the craziest red carpet fashions. The VMAs is the one award show that celebrities are allowed to wear whatever they want! This allows artists to showcase their artistic and sometimes odd fashions throughout the night. Keep an eye on Lady Gaga!
6. First Britney Spears and now Justin Timberlake! Justin will be receiving the ‘Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award’ celebrating JT’s couple dozen music videos over the last two decades. If that isn’t enough, there are rumors that Justin will be reuniting with past band-mates Lance, JC, Joey and Chris from N’Sync!
5. Lady Gaga will be taking the stage to perform her newest hit, “Applause”, for the first time! We all know that when Gaga takes stage, you must expect the unexpected! While it’s completely unknown how this pop diva will be opening up the show, we do know that this performance is her ” most physically challenging”! Wonder what that means!
4. Rapper Kanye West will be taking the VMA stage for the seventh time! Other than the paparazzi feuds, Kanye West has been laying low ever since the birth of his daughter, North West. Kanye will be bringing his Yeezus track, “Black Skinhead” (my favorite Yeezus track), to life! Also when Kanye’s around . . . you never know what to expect! Watch out Taylor Swift!
3. Katy Perry will also be making her return to the VMA stage! The Prism singer will be performing her newest hit, “Roar”. While Katy Perry always keeps it entertaining, expect a lot more this time around! I wouldn’t be surprised if we caught Katy on stage with one of her very special “Katy Kats” . . .
2. The VMAs light up the night! Expect some of music’s biggest stars – big and small! Other performers include Ariana Grande, Austin Mahone, Drake, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis! Other stars on the guest list include Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Ellie Goulding, fun., One Direction, 2 Chainz, Justin Bieber and many more!
