The MTV VMAs are coming up tonight at 8pm, and it is shaping up to be quite a show.
Katy Perry will be hosting, and also giving a “space themed performance” which promises to be about as weird as you would expect. She teased the appearance a while ago on Instagram, with a montage of her past years at the awards;
The VMAs confirmed the choice of Perry as host on Twitter later on;
Miley Cyrus, Lorde, Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd, and Fifth Harmony will be amongst the list of other performers. Even Sir Rod Stewart is performing with DNCE, doing their rework of “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy”
Taylor Swift is reportedly NOT performing, however she will be releasing the music video (or short movie, by the looks of the teaser trailer) during the show.
P!NK will be receiving the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, and performing a medley of her greatest hits!
This will also mark the first year without gender-specific categories; rather than having a “best female” and “best male” artist, the category will now simply be known as “best artist,” and could go to someone of any gender.
They also added a category called “Best Fight Against the System,” which will showcase songs that made a big political statement in the past year.
