Sunday is finally here, which means we’re that much close to the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. This year’s show promises performances and appearances from some of the biggest names in Hollywood and we can’t wait.
The show is slated to kick off Sunday, Aug. 28 at 9 p.m. EDT on MTV. Don’t have access to a television set? Fear not! In addition to airing live from Madison Square Garden in New York City, for cable users, MTV has arranged for the show to stream online HERE. Viewers will have access to the pre-show, which kicks off at 8 p.m. EDT and will be hosted by DJ Khaled and Charlamagne Tha God, as well as the entire awards ceremony. The livestream is available to mobile and web users.
No matter how you plan to tune in, you’re not going to want to miss the 2016 MTV VMAs. The network has planned for performances from The Chainsmokers, Nick Jonas, Rihanna, Ariana Grande with Nicki Minaj and many more. It has also been rumored that Kanye West, who will be at the VMAs to support Kim Kardashian West as she presents an award during the show, will take the stage. TMZ reported on Thursday that MTV gave the “Famous” rapper the green light to do whatever he pleases for four uninterrupted minutes. West did not tell producers what he planned to do with that time and MTV is reportedly just fine with that. MTV seemingly shot down the rumors, tweeting a popular meme starring none other than rapper Drake at TMZ, but viewers will just have to watch and see what happens.
The VMAs will throw off the network’s programming slightly, but we’re confident that viewers won’t mind. Rather than air a new episode of “Teen Mom OG” on Thursday, MTV has decided to air an all new show at 7 p.m. EDT. Teasers for the episode show controversial star Farrah Abraham feuding with her mother Debra ahead of a major doctor’s appointment, Amber Portwood preparing to meet her potential future in-laws and Maci Bookout revealing her pregnancy to friends and family just one episode after her epic engagement. Viewers will be able to catch the same episode on it’s normal date and time on MTV as well.
The 2016 MTV VMAs pre-show kicks off at 8 p.m. EDT on MTV. The awards will follow at 9 p.m. EDT live from New York City. What are you most looking forward to?
