- 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.
