MTV VMAs 2018: nominations and top 10 iconic moments

One of the most important awards in the USA, one of the most followed music ceremonies all over the world, the most loved event by young people is the MTV VMAs (Video Music Awards), airing live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Sunday, August 20th at 9.00 p.m. EDT/PDT on MTV. A red carpet will precede the show.
Every year the VMA ceremony takes place before the end of summer. The first one was in 1984. Every year different singers host them and there are always many performances. For example, Katy Perry hosted them and Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Logic -and so on- performed last year. This year we don’t know yet who will host, but the performers are: Backstreet Boys, Millie Bobby Brown, Common, DJ Khaled, G-Eazy, Gucci Mane, Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Keegan-Michael Key, Kyle, Lenny Kravitz, Lil Uzi Vert, Blake Lively, Shay Mitchell, Olivia Munn, Rita Ora, Liam Payne, Bebe Rexha, Amandla Stenberg and Teyana Taylor.
The VMAs are divided into different nominations. Fans can vote on line for eight of them and follow the show in streaming.The most important category is the “Video of the Year”; won by Kendrick Lamar with “HUMBLE” last year. Cardi B received the highest number of nominations (in 10 categories), the Carters (Beyoncé and JAY-Z) follow her with 8, and Childish Gambino and Drake with 7 each. In addition, there is also a special award: “Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award”. This is a lifetime achievement prize to recognize accomplishments in music and films.
