In but a few nights’ time, I will (hopefully) know the answers to my burning questions for the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards: Who will win the crazy-stacked category that is Video of the Year? What’ll Kanye West do with those four minutes? Will anyone get into a fight in the middle of the show? What'll be ~the moment~ of the show? Which hits will Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award recipient Rihanna perform? Seriously though, if “Formation” by Beyoncé doesn’t win Video of the Year, can it just be a five-way tie? However, here’s one thing I can stop wondering about: Which famous folk will dole out the trophies at the annual music video award show this year? On Thursday, MTV announced in a press release who is confirmed to present at the 2016 VMAs, and it is quite the dynamic and delightful (dyna-lightful?) lineup.
Here is who is officially on the bill to hand out Moonman statues at Sunday night’s live program: Alicia Keys, Ansel Elgort, Bebe Rexha, Fifth Harmony, Jaden Smith, Jimmy Fallon, Kim Kardashian, Rita Ora, Shameik Moore, Puff Daddy, Tove Lo, Michael Phelps, Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian, and Aly Raisman. Recording artists and TV stars and movie stars and Olympians, oh my!
I know it's not nice to pick favorites, but I’d be a liar if I said I wasn’t beyond amped to see both Fifth Harmony and the Final Five on the list. I hope they join forces on the red carpet and pose for a bajillion photos together and sing “That’s My Girl” together and become a Girl Power Megazord.
That's my Girl Power Megazord! That's my Girl Power Megazord! Get up and play that video on repeat, what you waiting for?
