Shows | 2012 MTV Video Music Awards
September is right around the corner and you all know what that means: The MTV Video Music Awards are back and bigger than ever. This year, the Moonman will take over the Staples Center in sunny Los Angeles for the live show on Friday, Sept 7th at 02:30 AM. Which of your favorite pop princesses, raging rockers, and swag-slinging rap stars are included on the esteemed nominee list? Though voting for the majority of the categories is now closed, you can check out the nominees and cast your vote for Best New Artist and for Most Share-Worthy Video, both of which will be open right up until the start of the live show. As if the lineup wasn't knock-your-socks-off good already, superstar Rihanna and ground-breaking singer/songwriter Frank Ocean will all be joining the outstanding list of VMA performers. With an impressive 8 nominations between the two of them, these A-listers each have a shot at leaving Los Angeles with a Moonman in hand. They'll be joining chart-topper Taylor Swift, VMA vets Green Day and P!nk, songstress Alicia Keys and the Brit boys of One Direction as 2012 VMA performers.
