Watch MTV Video Music Awards

This award show prevents accolades for achievement in popular music, focusing on those artists and songs who are strongly linked to video presentations of their music. The broadcast is usually more notable for the outlandish performances and gossip-worthy onstage drama than for the quality of the art.
