With star-studded performances, an audience of iconic Hollywood celebrities and a preceding Twitter war among two of its biggest names, The MTV Video Music Awards is set to be an explosive night for the music industry.
Miley Cyrus, who is hosting this year's awards show, has been campaigning the event across social media since announcing she'd be this years host on Twitter.
Who's performing: The VMAs air on MTV tonight at 9 p.m. The show will open with a performance from Nicki Minaj, despite her feud with Taylor Swift after not being nominated for video of the year. Other performers include Tori Kelly, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Demi Lovato, Twenty One Pilots and A$AP Rocky, Pharrell Williams and Justin Bieber.
The Weeknd will also be performing Sunday night, who's new album Beauty Behind The Madness was released on Friday and comprises hit singles including "Can't Feel My Face" and "Earned It." According to Radio, The Weeknd will perform "Can't Feel My Face" for the first time on television Sunday night.
Who's presenting: The awards show will also boast a list of famous presenters from the silver screen, music industry, modeling and more. Here is the full list of presenters, according to JustJared:
Michael B. Jordan
Who's taking home a moonman: Spotify determined their best possible predictions for which performers will take home the coveted moonman awards for VMA music categories this year based on what songs and nominees have been listened to the most amongst it's 75 million subscribers.
Unfortunately, Taylor Swift's metrics may not exactly add up, being that the artist pulled her entire music library off of Spotify earlier in the year.
