The show is going to be held on the 12th of the next month and the expected performers at the show are rapper Kanye West and the teenage music sensation Justin Bieber.

The winners of the awards are going to be decided by the public. The voting for deciding the winners would close on the 24th of August. Lady Gaga, who is well known for her eccentric makeovers and bizarre performances, is in the running for a number of awards. Eminem is closely following her with the second highest number of nominations.
