Tonight is the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards and this year’s event does not have a host. The hope is to focus on the music and have the performers, as well as the A-list presenters, carry the show in style. In the past, for VMAs events without a host, this was a success.

When it comes to this year’s presenters, Entertainment Weekly has reported that the stars presenting some of the awards include the Backstreet Boys, Millie Bobby Brown, Common, DJ Khaled, G-Eazy, Gucci Mane, Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Keegan-Michael Key, Kyle, Lenny Kravitz, Lil Uzi Vert, Blake Lively, Shay Mitchell, Olivia Munn, Rita Ora, Liam Payne, Bebe Rexha, Amandla Stenberg and Teyana Taylor.
