VMAs: All you need to know
One of the most anticipated nights of the calendar year is coming up, and no, we’re not talking about Eurovision – we’re talking about the VMAs! The Video Music Awards sees miniature-astronaut awards land in the hands of our favourite artists.
This year, the VMAs will be taking place on August 27th (it’s a Sunday, so no excuse to miss it), at The Forum in Inglewood, California. For one night only, the city of Los Angeles is going to be even more star-studded and we just can’t wait to see what’s going to happen. Whether it’s Kanye West interrupting just about anyone (watch out Taylor), or Britney being accompanied by a giant yellow python, we know we’ll be fixed to our screens.
For the first time, MTV have scrapped gendered awards by combining best male and female into one award: Artist of the Year. That’s not all that has changed, a new award called “Best Fight Against the System” has been introduced, a follow on from the previous award of “Best Video with a Social Message”.
Here are the top nominations for the VMAs 2017:
Video of the Year:
Artist of the Year:
Best New Artist:
Best Hip Hop:
Best Fight Against The System:
So, who’s your money on? Some of our resident superstars are up for nominations and we’re hoping they can bring us back a mini astronaut to Blackpool. Our very own pocket-sized diva Ariana Grande is up for artist of the year, and we can’t see anyone who’s going to stop this Florida-born songstress.
They’re the nominations, but what else can we expect from this year’s jam-packed music show?
The much anticipated VMAs is definitely not going to disappoint, and we’ve been promised a stellar line-up with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, and Lorde set to perform. The one and only Katy Perry is presenting, and we’re almost certain she won’t be chained to the rhythm with the amount of outfit changes she’ll be able to fit in – will she be borrowing Lady Gaga’s meat dress we wonder?
All eyes on Taylor Swift if she wins her category, will there be a congratulatory hug from Katy Perry, or is their feud still at large? Oh, we just can’t wait to see what happens! It’s sure to be another historic night of music, with thrills and spills. Let us know if you’re tuning in and what your favourite part of the show is @MTBlackpool.
