MTV Video Music Awards
Katy Perry will host the MTV Video Music Awards 2017 MTV

Get ready for some high voltage on-stage drama, celebrity feuds, and major fashion moments as the year's most controversial award show - The MTV Video Music Awards 2017 - is set to begin at 6:15 pm ET at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

Where to Watch: The star-studded 33rd annual VMAs will be broadcast live on MTV's Live TV site. Click on the event's official website to watch the show live stream online. For regular updates on the show, keep checking the network's Facebook page.

Songstress Katy Perry will host the glittery evening and has asked her fans to 'brace for the impact' of her bold way of hosting. "I've been training with MTV in zero gravity, eating astronaut ice cream, and I'm on a group text with Buzz Aldrin and Neil deGrasse Tyson. Come August 27, I'll be ready to be your MOONWOMAN! Brace for impact, kids," she told viewers about what they can expect from the highly anticipated evening.

After Miley Cyrus' controversial and explicit manner of hosting the major event in 2015, the award show decided to go the 'no host' way in 2016. But after receiving flak from the audience, the Witness singer was chosen to do the honours. Perry, who has received five nominations this year, is also set perform her latest single Chained to the Rhythm. Lamar tops the nominees list with eight nods followed by Perry and The Weeknd.

Kendrick Lamar, Fifth Harmony, Miley Cyrus, Lorde, The Weeknd, Ed Sheeran, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Shawn Mendes and Pink (who will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award) will perform on the glittery evening.
