The MTV Video Music Awards are upon us again. The annual crowd-voted award ceremony will be broadcast live at 9 p.m. Eastern on Sunday from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Devoted music fans will want to get their butts in front of a television hours earlier — the 2016 VMA pre-show begins at 8 p.m. and red carpet coverage starts at 6:15 p.m.
There's no word yet on what the stars will be wearing as they pass through the paparazzi-lined gauntlet into the event space (and safety) — but regardless of the ensembles, this is a portion of the evening that merits close scrutiny. The outfits! The potential for baby bump watching on female celebrities, a favorite pastime of the internet and media alike!
But probably the most exciting performer slated to take the stage Sunday is comeback artist and newly announced subject of a Lifetime biopic, Britney Spears. What will she do this year? Mercilessly helicopter a python? Make out with an older female icon, such as Helen Mirren? Only one way to find out: Watch the show.
Here's a list of artists performing at the 2016 VMAs, as reported by AM New York:
- Ariana Grande with Nicki Minaj
- Nick Jonas
- The Chainsmokers
- Lukas Graham
- Alessia Cara
Enjoy the show!
