Everything you need to know before tonight's VMAs
From wild kisses to bold performances, the MTV Video Music Awards have always been entertaining. Superstar collabs, interruptions and outrageous outfits have all been highlights of previous Award ceremonies.
What does tonight's VMA 2017 hold for us, in a show where previous years have seen the usual go beyond unusuals?
Based in California, the show will be hosted by Katy Perry and will see performances by Lorde, Fifth Harmony and Kendrick Lamar. With the latter expected to steal this year’s show; as always, in addition to being nominated for EIGHT different awards while The Weeknd and Perry follow have five.
This year MTV have decided to shake things up by abolishing gender-roles and allowing artists of both genders to go head-to-head for the artist of the year award. They have also added a “fight against the system” award.
With that being said, unless a certain Mr. West has other plans, this year’s awards is expected to be tamer than previous editions.
To re-live all the mind-blowing moments of previous editions and to raise your excitement a little bit more, here’s a compilation of best moments/performances.
