Ahead of the Video Music Awards this weekend, MTV have proven they're standing on the right side of history by reaching out to the United States military to invite active-duty trans soldiers to the ceremony.
The VMAs start at 8pm ET/PT on MTV. Also, Todrick Hall, is that you? Perry, for her part, will perform a space-themed medley of her hits both old and new - and, according to Variety, might make her entrance descending from the ceiling, following on from Lady Gaga at the Super Bowl. Recall a year ago, when Beyoncé brought the mothers of four young black men who had been killed by police as her dates to the VMAs red carpet, making a strong statement for the Black Lives Matter movement. MTV's Terrence J, Charlamagne Tha God, and Gaby Wilson will be talking to guests as they arrive, and Bleachers, Khalid, and Cardi B are set to perform. Perry, Video Vanguard recipient Pink, Sir Rod Stewart featuring DNCE, Ed Sheeran, Miley Cyrus,Kendrick Lamar, Demi Lovato, Lorde and Fifth Harmony are just some of the bold-faced names taking the stage. Tied for second place are Katy Perry and The Weeknd, with five nominations each, and Bruno Mars with four nominations. The rapper, whose album DAMN. has sold more than 1.77 million copies since its release in April, is nominated for the biggest awards of the night-Artist of the Year and Video of the Year-as well as six other awards, all for his "Humble" video. See the Video of the Year competitors below, and check out the full list of nominees right here. Instead of "Man of the Year" or "Woman of the Year", the category might be for example, "Artist of the Year".
Yep. For the 2017 VMAs, MTV made all its categories gender-neutral, like they did earlier in the year for the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

Carnaval de Curramba for everyone Carnaval de Curramba for everyone
He who leaves without disguise will be sentenced to the holy rod and passed to the papayo of ridicule and popular derision. I want to put the whole heart to the Carnival so that the Board is in a heart attack and everyone passes it off.
When asked about the speculation of a Katy-Taylor reunion at the VMAs, however, show producer Garrett English was quick to halt the stories in their tracks. Hmmm, sounds vague to us!
What are you looking forward to on the MTV VMAs?
