When the MTV Video Music Awards kick off tonight at 8 p.m., the actual music could bring plenty of drama to the show.
In addition to live performances from the likes of P!nk, Taylor Swift, and One Direction, Green Day will take the stage after lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong was taken to an emergency room with a bad flu on Sunday. Nicki Minaj will perform with a special guest after apparently recently endorsing Mitt Romney for president.
What do you expect from this year's show? Will you be watching?
