Alessia Cara (@alessiasmusic): This Brampton, Ontario cutie is more than just a pretty face. She came out of nowhere and blew us away with her original talent and catchy tunes. If she walks onto the stage, no one will ask themselves, “What am I doing here?”

Nick Jonas (@nickjonas): The youngest Jonas brother, Nick Jonas shocked us with his all-grown-up solo album and music videos – the girls will be rushing to the edge of the stage because, let’s face it, space is just a word made up by someone who’s afraid to get close. (We know you’re singing it in your head!)


The rest of the VMA squad is said to include Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears (YES, Britney Spears!), Future, Lukas Graham, and Jidenna! Let’s hope these rumors are true because this is a show you won’t want to miss!

And if you haven’t already heard, MTV is giving Kanye West 4 whole minutes of stage time to himself…so be prepared for a lecture-style rant. Listen to the kids, bro!


Maybe he’ll take this opportunity to apologize to Taylor Swift for his character assassination of her in his VMA nominated song, “Famous.” It’s doubtful but who knows! Reports say T-Swift won’t be attending the VMAs, so he may have to give her a phone call, instead!
