The 2014 MTV VMA show will air live Sunday from the "Fabulous" Forum in Southern California. Last year, fans watched as Miley Cyrus made history with her infamous twerk session alongside Robin Thicke. It seems like a tough act to follow, but with a performance list this year that includes Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea, Taylor Swift, Maroon 5 and Jessie J, it is certainly possible.
Beyoncé will be this year’s Video Vanguard Award recipient and leads the pack with eight VMA nominations for her latest self-titled album, which was the fastest-selling album on iTunes.
"In addition to being the most nominated artist this year -- with eight nods altogether -- Beyoncé is also set to receive MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, honoring an artist’s body of work. Past Video Vanguard recipients include Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Beastie Boys, Madonna and, of course, Michael Jackson, for whom the award was renamed in 1991," Rolling Stone said.
At the 2014 VMA's live Pre-Show, hosted by 'Pretty Little Liars' star and rising country music singer Lucy Hale, VMA nominees Charli XCX and Fifth Harmony will start the party with performances on the red carpet.
