2010 MTV Video Music Awards Live Blog


We’ll be honest readers. After hearing that Lady Gaga will not be performing at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, we debated whether or not to even watch the show this year. Then it was announced that Kanye West would be taking the stage — and we smelled the potential for some Swiftian drama. We’ll be live blogging right here beginning at 9PM on Sunday night, but in the meantime, we thought you might want to check out the nominees in each category (our picks are in bold).
