Where To Watch the MTV VMA Awards 2022 and How to Live Stream the Show

MTV's 2022 VMA Awards is being held at the New Jersey's Prudential Center in Newark on August 28 with the stars arriving on the red carpet starting at 6.30 p.m. ET.

Leading the nominations are Doja Cat, Harry Styles, and Jack Harlow with eight nominations each. They are closely followed by Kendrick Lamar and Lil Nas X with seven nods each.

Grammy-winner Billie Eilish has five nominations to her name, including Best Longform Video. Joining Eilish with five nominations are Drake, BTS, The Weeknd, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, and Taylor Swift.

Nicki Minaj, LL Cool J, and Harlow will be co-hosting the ceremony in a break from tradition. The ceremony is usually hosted by just one person, so things will look a little different this year.

The MTV VMA's have been home to some of the most iconic moments in pop culture (good and bad) including Lady Gaga's meat dress, Madonna and Britney Spears's kiss, and the moment Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift on stage.

Newsweek has everything you need to know about where to watch the MTV VMA Awards so you do not miss a thing.
