#SociallyDvoted

2016 Video Music Awards

Tonight, most of us will be watching the VMA's to see our favorite performances. I know I'm looking forward to Britney Spears, Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, and Beyonce, who are you tuning in to see? The thing I've loved the most about shows like the VMA's is when an artists I hadn't paid much attention to really blows me away with their performance and wins me over. 

I always look at events like this as a chance to see the performers I've loved all year and meet some new ones who will become part of my playlist. Tonight, I'll be watching, mostly for the live performances but also to see who takes home a Moon Man. 

Who are you expecting to win? What artists have won you over during a past VMAs performance? I've included a list of the popular categories but you can head over to MTV.com to see the full list:
