MTV bringing VMAs back to L.A.


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: MTV will bring its Video Music Awards back to Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre, hoping to recapture some of the magic from last year’s telecast, which was the third-watched telecast in the network’s history.

The 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards will air live on Sunday, Aug. 28 at 9 p.m.

“The city is the perfect backdrop for all the musical moments, mayhem and magic that make the VMAs such a notorious celebration,” MTV president Stephen Friedman told THR.

And in a statement, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa praised, “We are proud to host the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles, the creative capital of the world. And we look forward to showcasing our city’s exciting new downtown entertainment attractions.”

But was it the location of the event that had people talking, or the line of talent MTV programmed? Musical guests like Kanye West (pictured), Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and more certainly helped bring in viewers. No doubt MTV knows how to stock the show with mega-stars, though we likely won’t have any idea who will perform and present at the VMAs until we get closer to the show.
