The best music videos of the past year are honored at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA's). Held annually since 1984, this ceremonial show is known for its outrageous performances, which can sometimes overshadow the award-giving itself. 

This year, Justin Timberlake is rumored to re-united with his N'Sync bandmates for a performance celebrating his fifteen-year career. 

Among other performances, Lady Gaga is scheduled to debut her new single, the first from  album  ARTPOP.  

MTV, whose original purpose was to broadcast music videos 24 hours a day, conceived the VMA's as the music video equivalent of the  Grammy's   or the  Oscar's.

During the 1991 awards show, the MTV Video Vanguard Award was renamed the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, in recognition of his contribution to the art of music videos. Jackson injected more creativity into the process by composing a storyline to fit with the music. 

Winners are presented with a miniature statue of an astronaut, a tribute to MTV's debut on television screens involving a montage of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
