The MTV Video Music Awards (also known as the VMAs) will be returning for its 30th consecutive year in 2014! This year, the renowned award ceremony will take place at The Forum in Inglewood, CA on Sunday, Aug 24 at 9pm ET/PT.
Best known for its controversies—Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus' twerking, etc—MTV never fails to arrange for the most epic line-up of artists to give live performances. I am sure Miley Cyrus' and Robin Thicke's very provocative performance at last year's show is still imprinted in everyone's memory. I'm quite sure that we will once again be blown away by the rapidly growing list of not-to-be-missed live performances for this year's VMAs.
To get everyone pumped up for the show, here's a list of celebrity performers slated to perform at the VMAs this year:
- Global superstar and pop icon Taylor Swift
- Superstar rock band Maroon 5
- Breakout popstar Ariana Grande
- Rap goddesses Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea (I smell catfight...)
- Multi-platinum selling recording artist Usher
- Phenomenal Australian pop-punk band 5 Seconds of Summer
The show premieres in Asia on Monday, 25 August at 8am (WIB) and 9am (SG/MAL).
