How To Watch MTV Video Music Awards 2018: Online Stream Live Everything you need

 

It’s that time of the year again – when MTV’s Video Music Awards anoint the best music, artists and visuals of the year, and attempt to generate the controversial moments the awards show became infamous for in the ’90s and 2000s.

Below, read up on everything you need to know before the 2018 VMAs return to New York City this Monday.

When and where are the VMAs?

The 2018 VMAs will air live from Radio City Music Hall on Monday, August 20 at 9:00 p.m. EDT/PDT on MTV, following a one-hour red carpet show.

How can I watch?

Not watching via cable TV? The show will also be streamed live on MTV’s app, which still requires a cable subscription. You can also stream the show live with a DirecTV Now subscription.

Who is hosting?

While MTV normally announces the VMAs host well in advance of the show, this year, the awards show is keeping potential viewers in the dark, with no host announced with less than a week to go before the show.  

Who are the nominees?

Cardi B leads the pack with 12 nominations, largely for her Bruno Mars duet “Finesse (Remix).” That video will compete for video of the year against Childish Gambino’s “This Is America,” Drake’s “God’s Plan,” Beyonce and Jay-Z’s “Ape****,” Camila Cabello’s “Havana” and Ariana Grande’s “No Tears Left to Cry.”

“Ape****” earned Beyonce and Jay-Z eight nominations, landing the couple the second-most nominations after Cardi.

Gambino’s “This Is America” video earned him seven nominations, while Drake, who gave away $1 million to Miami residents in his “God’s Plan” clip, also scored seven nods.

Who is performing?

Ariana Grande,Travis Scott, Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, and Logic with Ryan Tedder are among the names confirmed to perform at Radio City Music Hall, while Nicki Minaj  will deliver a “special remote performance” from an unspecified location in NYC that will be simulcast during the event.

Before the show, Backstreet Boys, Bazzi  and Bryce Vine will perform at the VMAs red carpet preshow outside of Radio City Music Hall. Bazzi will reprise his performance alongside Jessie Reyez,  PrettyMuch, Hayley Kiyoko and Juice WRLD on the VMAs’ special PUSH Artist Stage dedicated to rising artists.

Who is this year’s Video Vanguard recipient?

Jennifer Lopez will be awarded the VMAs’ 2018 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, the awards’ version of a lifetime achievement award. The announcement angered some fans, who rallied for Missy Elliott to receive the honor.

See the full list of nominations below.
