Conan O'Brien will host the annual event on 13 April at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

The event has become notorious for bizarre occurrences, wardrobe malfunctions, epic tantrums and awkward acceptance speeches.

And Eminem's highly-anticipated performance with pop superstar Rihanna will no doubt deliver just as much controversy as the show is used to.
