2009 MTV Video Music Awards are Coming Up This Weekend!
The MTV Video Music Awards are set for September 13, 2009 at the Radio City Music Hall in NYC. It will be the second year in a row that British comedian Russell Brand is hosting the award show—probably because when he hosted last year, viewership was up 40%!
This year, Lady Gaga and Beyonce lead the way with 9 nominations each, followed by Britney Spears (7), and then Coldplay, Eminem, and Kanye West (4). The nominations also include some predictable choices and regulars (Ne-Yo, Jay-Z, Kelly Clarkson), as well as some refreshing newcomers (3OH!3, Drake, Cobra Starship).
The awards show will also give the stage to some of the biggest performers: Taylor Swift, Muse, Pink, Green Day, Jay-Z, and Lady Gaga. I can’t wait to watch and see what shenanigans Russell Brand will try to pull this year!
