- After Miley Cyrus, it's Katy Perry's turn to host MTV VMA awards
- Katy Perry is the only person to have 100 million followers on Twitter
- Katy's up for five VMAs this year for Chained to the Rhythm
MTV has experimented with different host formats for the annual party, which were generally better remembered for attention-grabbing on-stage incidents than for the award winners.
Miley Cyrus hosted the event two years ago, but in 2016, MTV decided to have multiple presenters throughout the night rather than a single host.
Katy Perry, the only person with more than 100 million followers on Twitter, is up for five VMAs this year for Chained to the Rhythm, her disco-inspired track whose video presents a sci-fi amusement park fantasy.
The 32-year-old has three videos that have reached one billion views on YouTube, led by Roar.
