The MTV VMA Awards are one of the biggest annual awards shows in all of music. Fans get to relive the incredible hit music videos from the previous year and watch some of the most popular musicians alive perform on stage for the world to see.
After the 2021 VMA awards, during which fans were entertained by thrilling performances by artists like Olivia Rodrigo, Lil Nas X, Camila Cabello, and the VMAs host Doja Cat, it’s going to be a hard act for the 2022 VMAs to follow.
What are the VMA Awards?
The MTV VMA Awards are the inaugural awards show that first took place in 1984 and are presented by MTV to honor the best music video in the medium. Over the years, there have been some incredible moments that would be considered viral before virality was even a concept, including Britney and Madonna’s shared kiss on stage, Lil’ Kim’s outfit, Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” performance, and Kanye West’s “Ima let you finish” rant interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech.
This year’s VMAs promises to be another incredible show full of great performances from top artists.
