2013 MTV VMA presenters family photo!
The 2013 MTV VMAs are TONIGHT, folks. Dunno if you realized that. If not, it's time to WAKE UP! Or keep sleeping. It's your choice.
But really, the VMAs are alllllmost here (tonight at 9 p.m. ET), and although we've spent a lot of valuable time talking about tonight's performers (Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West -- JUST to name a few), we thought we should take a time out and talk about tonight's presenters (see: Jimmy Fallon, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, One Direction, etc)! Because presenting is a tough job, you know? There are all those lines to remember, you gotta make sure you don't outshine the actual award WINNER while still looking really, really fabulous, acting not-awkward if you run into your ex (COUGH HAYLOR COUGH)... SO MANY THINGS!
So, without any further delay, let's GO!
1.) JIMMY FALLON: Erryyybody knows this funnyman. From his six-year tenure on "SNL" to his hi-larious late-night talk show to his wonderfully original "classroom instruments" artist guest spots (also, don't forget his own turn as a singer -- remember "Idiot Boyfriend"?), Jimmy's been cracking us up for years. Also, it seems especially fitting that Jimmy would be presenting Justin Timberlake with the Video Vanguard VMA -- not only are they IRL friends, but they are ESPECIALLY funny when they team up. (See: every segment on Justin's week-long "Late Night" tenure.)
2.) TAYLOR SWIFT: This twice-nominated fringed songstress has had what we think is one of the best years of her career, between the success of Red and her subsequent "Red" tour. I mean, we hardly have to spell it out for you. Obviously we can't wait to see Tay hit the stage and present a Kaws Moonman, but what we're REALLY excited to see is a) if she'll run into her ex-flame Harry Styles (who's also presenting a VMA with One Direction), or b) if it'll be awkward. #Sorry again for living vicariously through your love life, Taylor! #NotSorry
3.) SELENA GOMEZ: Not only is the "Come & Get It" singer nominated for a Best Pop Video VMA, but she's also hitting the stage to present an award! This is just the cherry atop Sel's jam-packed year. Even though she's had to dodge a few are-they-aren't-they together Justin Bieber rumors (which, let's face it, hasn't exactly hurt her career), Selena's got the world wrapped around her little finger between her ultra-successful Stars Dance album, tour, and breakout role in "Spring Breakers." And please don't forget that she's about to carjack Ethan Hawke in "Getaway" (out Aug. 30).
