wpid-mtv-vmas-forum-inglewood.jpeg

The MTV Video Music Awards are right around the corner and the annual music award show has finally unveiled the full list of performers that are slated to take the stage to perform.

For the last few weeks, the former music television network had been revealing performers once at a time to prolong the suspense for those who tune in annually.

Today, Sam Smith was revealed as the last performer on the list. Throughout the past weeks, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, Maroon 5, Usher, Ariana Grande, 5 Seconds of Summer and Beyoncé (who will also be receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award) had been revealed to be taking the stage at some point during the normally two and a half hour music-centric award program.

In the award nomination portion of the show, Beyoncé leads this year’s pack with a grand total of eight while fellow performer, Iggy Azalea trails behind with seven nominations.

This year, MTV will be introducing a new category to the award show, the MTV Clubland Award which will capitalize on the recent popularity of electronic dance music (EDM).

The full list of nominees can be found here. The MTV Video Music Award will take place this Sunday, August 24, live from the refurbished The Forum in Inglewood, CA beginning at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Ed Sheeran Releases Two New Tracks

image

With the Nine Days of Ed Sheeran special on MTV, it was only a matter of time before some of the Brit’s new songs from his upcoming new album, would be released.

Thanks to Sheeran and MTV, two new songs from the 24-year-old’s new album have been released. The tracks are titled “Even My Dad Does Sometimes” and “Shirtsleeves.”

An excited Sheeran took to Twitter to reveal some exciting news while on his way to a festival in Germany.

“Just found out I’ve had 5 x #1s on @iTunesMusic in 25+ countries in the last wee! Right now 7/10 songs on @iTunesUK are from x. Buzzin.”

Reportedly, two more tracks are set make their debut this weekend as well. That’s one way to get viewers to gravitate to your channel and try to remind the older generation that the “M” in MTV used to stand for music, not mindless.

Check out the songs here.

Watch the *NSYNC Reunion

nsync

What was the most anticipated portion of the MTV Video Music Awards was also the shortest of the night; the reunion of NSYNC!

After much speculation of are they or aren’t they, the former boy band including JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass and the man of the evening Justin Timberlake took the stage for probably a total of three seconds to perform a quick medley of “Girlfriend” and “Bye, Bye, Bye” with choreography from the video and all.

Last week, when word had gotten out that there might be reunion, that’s all that it was at the time; rumors. Many were hoping that Timberlake would finally agree to give the kids from the ’90s something to remember especially when it was the boy band that helped launch him to super stardom, and he did, briefly.

Keep your eyes open because if you blink, you might miss it.
