Love the MTV Video Music Awards? You’ve come to the right place: Us too. Nominations for the MTV VMAs were announced earlier and that has led us to one question and one question alone: When are the VMAs, anyway?
The answer for all of you VMA junkies is that they’re right around the corner. More precisely, the VMAs will air live on August 27th, 2017 at 8pm EST (so that’s 5pm on the west coast, folks). This year, the 2017 Video Music Awards will be filmed live at the Forum in Inglewood, California, in the greater Los Angeles area, as the hosting venue.
“The City of Inglewood welcomes the return of the MTV VMAs to the number 1 concert venue in California, the Forum,” Inglewood mayor James Butts said in an official statement.
“MTV, at 35 years old, has been around almost as long as the Forum. Together, we’re 85 and enjoy lifetimes of music history,” added Shelli Azoff, Managing Partner for the Forum in the same press release. “This year is sure to be another epic show with many incredible memories for MTV, the award winners, and especially the fans. The entire Forum family is thrilled to welcome back the VMAs!”
The statement also reminds us the that the telecast was held at the “Fabulous” Forum in 2014 where Beyoncé, Usher, Taylor Swift and more musical greats performed. We also learned that Jesse Ignjatovic will return as Executive Producer for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. We’re so excited to see what performances unfold on the stage!
To recap: The 2017 VMAs air at 8pm EST on August 27th, 2017 and will be filmed at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Get your bowls of popcorn, comfy PJs and dance moves ready.
