Joan Rivers may be famous for her snarky Red Carpet commentary, but at this year's MTV Video Music Awards, she'll have competition for someone who's even less impressed by the show. That's because the entire U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team, including McKayla Maroney (now famous for her "not impressed" face), will present awards alongside Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa, and Mac Miller. All eyes will be on Maroney, and whether she will be impressed by this year's glitz and glamour.
At the London Olympics, Maroney became an Internet hit when her “McKayla is not impressed” meme went viral. A New York-based blogger made the sore-loser’s pout famous by inserting the athlete in various landmarks, including by the NBC headquarters in New York and alongside Beyoncé’s baby bump.
In the aftermath of their gold medal-winning performance, Maroney and the rest of the gold medal winning team, including Gabby Douglas, Alexandra Raisman, Kyla Ross, and Jordyn Wieber, became famous when they made appearances on Today and Late Show With David Letterman. Their MTV Awards performance is only guaranteed to boost their popularity.
The VMA’s will be held in the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sept. 6, and the live show will air at 8/7c from the biggest venue in its history. Some of the evening highlights include:
Drake, Rihanna, Katy Perry, M.I.A., and Gotye are currently voters’ favorite nominees for best music video of the year.
Impressive lineup, right? The lineup is inciting excitement among music fans, but they await the final approval of America’s most judgmental gymnast.
