good evening and welcome independent Liveblog for MTV VMAs 2022.
This year’s ceremony taking place tonight (Sunday August 28) in Newark, New Jersey will have not one but three hosts to entertain you throughout the evening: Jack Harlow, Nicki Minaj, and LL Cool J.
Organizers have also booked a number of stars for the live performances, including Lizzo, K-pop group Blackpink, Eminem and Snoop Dogg, and Italian rock band Menskin.
Harlow and Menskin are a bit controversial due to the fact that they both pulled out of the Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK to make it to the VMAs. I guess money (and primetime TV slots) do matter…

OK, who’s going to wear what on the red carpet? I’ve seen a lot of predictions for “naked” outfits since Megan Fox wore one last year… personally I’m always excited to see what Lizzo does, as well as the menskin lot (even if they’re my Be in Bad Books) to attend a UK festival exit), Rosalia, Bad Bunny (Incredible Style), and Billie Eilish. Nicki Minaj must be wearing at least three weird outfits.
