Though MTV long abandoned playing music videos in favor of such programs as Teen Mom 2 and its Scream reboot for the most part, this is the one night where the cable outlet honors clips that most people watched on Vevo or YouTube rather than MTV. Here are five reasons to watch the VMAs: 1. Miley Cyrus: Will she bring a wrecking ball to the proceedings? As host, a task usually handled by a professional comedian, she sets the tone for the night and that’s a tall order—even though she did hire comedian/actor Seth Rogen to write her opening sketch. Cyrus either has to do something more shocking than her twerking escapade with Robin Thicke two years ago (which was one of the dominos that helped topple his career) or something more altruistic, such as last year when she had a homeless youth accept her award. Maybe she can give away a car to everyone in the audience, Oprah style! Or give birth on live TV to a unicorn! Even though it’s 34 years old and has a stodgy corporate parent in Viacom VIAB +2.50%, MTV still likes to pretend it’s edgy—when the fact is that ship sailed 30 years ago—and Cyrus’s antics have worn thin and overshadow her estimable singing and acting talents. Still, it will be interesting to see what she brings to the landscape. There’s also the rumor floating around that she will drop new music immediately after the awards show ends. 2. Kayne West: As recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award (in other words, the VMAs needed to give West an award to get him to show up), West has an open mic and time to say whatever he wants. West is best when he uses his platform to stick up for the underdog instead of boasting about his own underappreciated (in his mind) talents. What we’d love is for West to graciously thank the directors and producers who have helped make his videos strong and then pivot to a social issue of concern to him. It’s the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and, in hindsight, his comments about then-President Bush not caring about black people, seem tame compared to the race issues the country currently faces.He’s capable of delivering a thoughtful, impactful speech. He’s also capable of being a raging, egotistical jerk. We’ll see which Kanye turns up tonight. 3. Nicki Minaj: The rapper is opening the show. She was, perhaps, given the honor in part to make up for what she perceived to be a huge slight in not getting a Video of the Year nomination for “Anaconda.” Even if there is an agenda at work here, Minaj is always a compelling, theatrical performer, so it’s a win-win for MTV and Minaj. Though she denied her comment “if your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year” was directed at Taylor Swift, look for the camera to be panning to Swift often during Minaj’s performance and, of course, during West’s speech. 4. Live premieres: A number of artists will use the night to debut new songs: Justin Bieber performs his latest single “What Do You Mean,” at the show. Nick Jonas does the same...
