Last year’s MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) will always be remembered as the night when Kanye West came at Taylor Swift in a strange bid to come to Beyoncé’s rescue. Taylor won and Beyoncé lost.
Kanye or no Kanye wanna-be on Sept. 12 though, you can bet that there will be lots of watchable stuff for viewers to enjoy. This is because Lady Gaga copped a historic 13 nominations. Now, you all know Lady Gaga and since she is up for a record-breaking 13 Moonman trophies, she will surely come up with something unique or shocking or at the very least mesmerizing for the audience.
The Gaga’s monster-selling Bad Romance is up for all the major categories plus others. These are Video of the Year; Best Pop Video; Best Female Video; Best Dance Music Video; Best Art Direction; Best Cinematography; Best Direction; Best Choreography; Best Editing and Best Special Effects. Video Phone by Beyoncé featuring Lady Gaga also got nods for Best Collaboration and Best Choreography and then again for Video Of the Year and Best Choreography for Telephone featuring Beyoncé.
Then there is also Justin Bieber. The kid’s hit tune Baby featuring Ludacris, is in the running for the Best New Artist award against Ke$ha for Tik Tok; Jason Derulo for In My Head; Nicki Minaj featuring Sean Garrett for Massive Attack; and Broken Bells for The Ghost Inside.
This is a very popular and talented batch but not to forget, the public votes for the VMA winners and the teen-aged Justin is the biggest star of them all. Ergo, he is with loads of fans. I am sure the VMA will get him to perform for the event and all the tweenies in many parts of the world will sit up late just to watch him toss his bangs and go …baby, baby… They will rejoice if he wins and hate the VMA forever if he loses.
Lady GaGa adds two trophies to her collection at 2009 Los Premios MTV Awards. She is named Best International Artist, beating The Veronicas, Taylor Swift, Ashley Tisdale and McFly. She also gets Song of the Year title, thanks to her hit single “Poker Face”. In this category, she pushes aside Shakira, Nelly Furtado, Kings of Leon and Wisin & Yandel.
Though losing Song of the Year to Lady GaGa, Wisin & Yandel still manage to walk home with double victories, taking home Artist of the Year and Video of the Year prizes. This is the first time the Puerto Rican reggaeton win at the event. “I want to thank Mexico, Puerto Rico and all the Latinos who support our music,” Wisin says. He also thanks rapper 50 Cent who is the announcer for Artist of the Year, “Also, someone who always believed in the revolution: 50 Cent.”
Another singer who scores her first award at the show is Paulina Rubio. Named Best Solo Artist, she says during her acceptance speech, “So early, I wasn’t expecting this. I want to thank my fans who have been voting day and night for (the song) ‘Causa y efecto.’ I’m the cause – you are the effect.”
Other winners include Jonas Brothers as Best International Pop Artist, Green Day as Best International Rock Artist and Calle 13 as Best Urban Artist. Hosted by Nelly Furtado alongside Calle 13′s Residente, the show was conducted on October 15 at Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. Prior to the main event, there were three special shows recorded on September 30 in Argentina, October 5 in Mexico and October 11 in Colombia.
