Outrageous: MILEY CYRUS Hosts + KENDRICK LAMAR, BEYONCE, ED SHEERAN & TAYLOR SWIFT Lead The Pack of 2015 VMA AWARD Nods – See The List!

As pop culture history would have it, the most notorious slogan in a word of the night to describe the night would have come from Lionel Ritchie in the 80s, where it went down in history that the American Music Awards was such a monumental night, he began saying, repeating, and by end-night, coined the word: “outrageous.”

 

 

Well if a word borrowed for what’s to come for this year’s 2015 VMAs was needed: “Outrageous” would be that word-so hand it over.

 

Set to air on August 30, one of music’s biggest award show nights is sure to pop with pop’s loudest siren: Miley Cyrus—hosting.

Although she is not scheduled to perform, this year, the VMAs put Cyrus in the position to perform, twerk or tongue at any moment in the meantime and between time [of the] three whole hours time it will air, so it’s a win-win for her nonetheless!

Leading the pack in nominations is Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift. Let’s see who all got a nod!
