It will be hosted by Miley Cyrusm with the performances of include Demi Lovato, Pharrell Williams, The Weeknd, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Twenty On Pilots with A$AP Rocky. And who could forget Bruce Springsteen opening the 2002 show by performing his September 11-inspired “The Rising” outside the American Museum of Natural History in New York City – punctuated by a mist of rain.
The performer line-up for the 2015 “MTV Video Music Awards” is MAJOR.
Miley Cyrus serves as host this year. “And she’s also set to overtake Madonna as the female artist with the most awards, So I think it could be her”. And while Miley Cyrus is sure to stun the crowd with her antics, she’ll have some stiff competition in Kanye West.
As in when he famously interrupted Taylor Swift’s speech for best female video in 2009, saying Beyonce should have won instead.
Toffler, who stepped down as president of Viacom Music Group in the spring, has watched the evolution of the event from an awards show to one of the most outrageous live TV events of the year. Nominated in the top category of Video of the Year are Beyoncé’s “7/11”, Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” Taylor Swift ft.
If this year’s VMAs are any reflection of her 2013 performance with Robin Thicke, we’re in for an awards show to remember. In addition, Kanye West will join the exclusive club of legendary artists bestowed with the “Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award”. “I can’t even say it. It’s weird”.
The VMAs will take place on Sunday, August 30 at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.
As for presenters for the evening, be on the lookout for some familiar faces, like We Are Your Friends costars Zac Efron and Emily Ratajkowski, Magic Mike XXL’s Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, and Joe Manganiello, and Fantastic Four’s Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, Miles Teller, and Jamie Bell. Rihanna also impressed with her live performances, appearing on a golden throne for a version of Cockiness.
Started in 1984, the VMAs celebrated music videos during a time when MTV was the primary source for them.
A tearful Gaga told the crowd: “I was so nervous tonight that I’d let my fans down”, before revealing the name of her new album and singing a snippet from the title track Born This Way.
