VMAs Live Stream 2016: Watch MTV Video Music Awards Online!
The 2016 VMAs are on Sunday, and Gossip Cop has a live stream!
This year’s MTV Video Music Awards are taking place at Madison Square Garden for the very first time in the show’s storied history. It will also be the first time the ceremony is held in New York City since 2013. And, interestingly, MTV has chosen to forgo having a traditional host.
Instead, the network has lined up a group of “correspondents” who will appear throughout the show. That will include DJ Khaled, who is also hosting the red carpet pre-show, Jay Pharoah, Nicole Byer, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Of course, more important than who is emceeing is who’s performing.
Rihanna, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Halsey will all take the stage. There will also be performances from Future, Nick Jonas, The Chainsmokers, and Ty Dollas $ign. And Kanye West is expected to do… something.
Presenters will include West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, as well as Fifth Harmony, Alicia Keys, Diddy, Jaden Smith, and Jimmy Fallon. Michael Phelps and the “Final Five” gymnastics team will be on hand, too. Awards will be given out in more than a dozen categories, honoring the best music videos from the past year.
The ceremony is slated to begin at 9 p.m. Eastern, immediately after the one-hour red carpet special. Gossip Cop will have full coverage all night.
