Is BTS performing at the Vmas 2021?

Although BTS has not been announced among the 2021 VMAs performers, don't give up hope just yet. If you've been bopping to their #1 songs “Butter” or “Permission to Dance” this summer, you're probably bummed that the pandemic has kept international supergroup BTS away from American shores for over a year. parade.comMTV VMAs 2021: Host, Performers, Nominees, How to Watch

After years of watching an internal duel at Mercedes, 2021 is finally here again. Formula 1 will once again see a real title fight between two different drivers from two different teams. Hamilton is of course the driver with the most experience, but it is Verstappen who is currently top of the championship.

''Max is mature and getting more and more confident, as we have seen it increase with Lewis since 2007 until now. And Red Bull's chassis and Honda's engine are also very good at the moment,'' said the former Formula One driver.

For Red Bull, that will be a huge challenge at the circuit where Mercedes have been so dominant in recent years. ''This race at Monza will also be another interesting one when it comes to who will finish the weekend on top. The characteristics of this track seem to be in favour of Mercedes, but I am not one hundred percent sure if that is still the case. But that's the fun of this season, that every race we don't know,'' concludes Herbert.

Once a year, the MTV Video Music Awards roll around to honor a year's worth of work in music videos.

This year, the show will take place in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center. The event will air live from the venue, the network announced in June.

Since the show, which takes place on Sept. 12, is so close to the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, MTV has teamed up with "the 9/11 Day nonprofit on events designed to ‘promote awareness and action’ in honor of the National Day of Service and Remembrance."

Sure to be an evening packed with stars, memorable performances and more, here's what you need to know about the 2021 MTV VMAs.

The 2021 MTV VMAs will air on MTV on Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET. It has not yet been confirmed this year, but in the past, the awards have also aired on a few other ViacomCBS-owned stations such as MTV2, VH1, Comedy Central and The CW.

For those who prefer streaming, the VMAs will be available on the MTV app, on MTV's website and on Paramount+.

This year, singer-rapper Doja Cat will serve as the host of the show.

The "Say So" musician, 24, announced the news on Twitter in August. According to Billboard, this will be the first time in history that the host was nominated for video of the year that same year.

Doja Cat is no stranger to the VMAs, as just last year, she won best new artist – one of the year's biggest awards. This year, she's nominated for five more, including the evening's highest honor: video of the year.

As usual, the evening is packed with performances from some of today's biggest stars.

"Cinderella" star Camila Cabello and her beau Shawn Mendes will each take the stage, while Doja Cat, Kacey Musgraves and Justin Bieber are also slated to perform.

Additionally, Lorde, the Foo Fighters, Chlöe, Twenty One Pilots, Machine Gun Kelly, Olivia Rodrigo and Lil Nas X are confirmed performers.

Rodrigo and Machine Gun Kelly's performances will be their first for the program, while the Foo Fighters will also be bestowed with the first-ever global icon award.

Like Doja Cat, several of the evening's performers are also nominated: Lil Nas X, Rodrigo, Bieber, Mendes, the Foo Fighters and Machine Gun Kelly.

Other superstars like Miley Cyrus, Cardi B, Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Harry Styles, Lady Gaga and more are also up for awards.

BTS and Blackpink represent K-pop music while H.E.R. and SZA joined their R&B contemporaries for multiple nods.

Britney Spears said she 'broke out in hives everywhere' while rehearsing her iconic 2001 VMAs performance, according to the snake-handler

Insider 10 September, 2021 - 12:00am

It has since become one of the most memorable moments in VMA history. But it turns out leading up to the performance, Spears was nervous about working with the snake that she later named "Banana."

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the performance, Yahoo talked to the snake-wrangler for that performance, Mike Hano, who admits Spears had reason to be concerned.

"Britney Spears is pretty small — and she was going to be dancing with [the python]," Hano said. "She had to position the snake on her shoulders by herself and dance around, and then she had to hand it off to a third person."

"It's easy to screw up that kind of thing," he continued. "You know, it gets wrapped around your arm and doesn't want to let go. It could have been really risky, because that was a live performance, one take."

Hano learned that Spears was reluctant to rehearse with the snake, and the wrangler admits looking back that it didn't help that her entourage was swarming her.

"They didn't even let me speak to her before," Hano said. "This is my first time face to face with her — and I'm holding this python! And all of a sudden, she's not ready to do that. I could see that she was uncomfortable."

Finally, Hano was allowed to be one-on-one with Spears and the snake. But the pop star was still uncomfortable, and Hano was told the next day she wanted to rehearse with the snake again.

Spears "said something to me about how she 'broke out in hives' everywhere that the snake had touched her during the rehearsal — which is just really not possible," Hano recalled about the second day of rehearsal, laughing.

But by then he said she was more relaxed and "very professional" and worked tirelessly to pull it off.

The performance by Spears would become a landmark moment not just for the VMAs but in Spears' career and led to numerous artists over the years paying homage to it by doing their own version. Kaley Cuoco even did it during an episode of "Lip Sync Battle."

So where is the snake now? Hano said that as of last year, it was still alive and living "somewhere in upstate New York."
