MTV Video Music Awards Are Going with ‘One Direction’
It’s that time of the year! Time to sit back and watch the drama that is the “MTV Video Music Awards” unfold. The show has given us the most epic moments in pop culture history such as the Taylor Swift/Kanye West interruption, the Britney and Madonna kiss, and just last year, the Beyoncé baby bump reveal.
With the dreamy boys of One Direction set to perform, who knows what kind of surprises will happen? Will a crazy fan ambush the stage? Will Bieber join them in song? Will they take their shirts off? Ok, maybe we’re getting a little too hopeful about that last one, but we can be sure the UK heartthrobs will not disappoint.
Liam Payne kept it tight lipped, telling MTV News, “We want to make a moment ourselves, but who knows?” While Harry Styles said, “This one’s for our fans.” The nominations are below; check to see if your favorite artist made the list and be sure to check out the awards on MTV September 6!
