Taylor Swift, Kanye West, One Direction – MTV Music Awards Seating Chart

NEVER MIND. Punked.

 
  • Eric Mitchell

    That MTV seating could get awkward and I would put $100 on multiple camera shots of that seating area.

  • justmefornow

    The Rock The River Festival is today in Eagle River WI. James is performing an acoustic set that starts @ 2:15. Here’s the live streaming link:

  • girlygirl

    If that seating chart is right, we may need #popcorn

  • Stooch

    Thanks for the reminder I almost forgot….where’s my head lol

  • milwlovesadam

    That seating chart is so on purpose. So is leaking it out now. They’ll behave like sweeties and it is just not worth my popcorn. Kanye already was apologizing when he talked about his daughter with Kris the other day.

    Yawn.

  • girlygirl

    Taylor isn’t very good at disguising her facial expressions when she’s in the audience at these award shows, though. What if Kanye wins an award (is he nominated for anything)?

  • lkingcorn

    Bet Kim makes her first public appearance with Kanye. The timing would be a good fit and Seacrest can make a big deal about his biggest money maker.

    Lambert will be at VMA’s according to this.

  • roaringpen

    2:15 Central time? Hmm……12:15 west coast.

  • Listening

    Umm I think everybody is forgetting the Harry Styles angle Taylor and Harry used to date. It’s not just about the tension between Taylor and Kanye.

    There will certainly multiple camera shots of all of them Harry, Taylor, and Kanye if any of them win something.

    MTV are soooo bad w/ that seating arrangement.LOL they’re dying for something to happen they want some interesting reactions/interactions,retractions and any other actions you can think of. To get peoples interest peaked.

  • Mateja Praznik

    Lovely cap of @PaulaAbdul and Louis Walsh from #XFactorAroundTheWorld which is happening live now! via @AbdulDaily pic.twitter.com/Si2Q3Bjhgi

  • Face

    LOL… obviously done on purpose… I expect many ‘reaction’ shots of the others in this group if/when one of them wins an award… just like at the Brits earlier this year

  • Face

    yikes… looks like Louis has had even more ‘work’ done… its like Pauler is hugging a waxwork of him!!

  • Madilo

    They’re so bad, why are they doing this ? lol

  • YankeeFan08

    Oh, nice! Adam is presenting at the VMAs. He’s full of surprises!

  • mmb

    Oh wow Unexpected, but great!

  • Connie
  • justmefornow

    It’s already started, The Gigg.com winner is on now. I missed the very beginning so I’m not sure of their name. Check them out. Very hard rock, almost metal. Girl On Fire next, then James.

  • Eric Mitchell

    Manufactured Drama is always funny.

  • Mel432

    I’m surprised. With a failed album and no record label. I wonder how he got invited?

  • taptap

    ikr? It’s so not fair that all those other artists with failed albums and no label didn’t get an invite!

    j/k great job as always, Adam!

  • Bernice

    Awesome for Angie! I know she has always been involved with helping others, and has said in many interviews that she wants to always be involved with charity and community work.
    She’s definitely going full on with those plans. First as the 7th Annual New England Walk4Hearing spokesperson, and now the ABCD Gala.
    Good for her!

  • Eilonwy_has_an_emu

    Lambert’s current management is both aggressive and effective. The plan they seem to be running is on the pop/celebrity axis, so it’s not for every artist in every genre… but it makes sense with Lambert’s musical and pop culture interests, and DAMN, they do a good job with it.

  • Mateja Praznik

    Lady Gaga and Katy Perry are also sitting together.

  • Mateja Praznik

    The Voice: Kylie Minogue being lined up to replace Jessie J as mentor

    Producers are also looking for a younger mentor to join Will.i.am – possibly JLS star Marvin Humes or former Spice Girl Mel C

  • Mateja Praznik
  • mmb

    Because he is still a celebrity with pop culture relevance? Soon to be on Glee? Cut on Avicii album? Performing in iheart show w Queen? He is still busy working on relatively high profile things. ( and that failed album did hit #1 and make history..)

  • Girl 3 Doors Down?
  • fuzzywuzzy

    There’s an empty seat between Taylor and Kanye, so there will be some kind of human buffer there. lol

  • roaringpen

    James is up momentarily. Hard to imagine acoustic after the GOF set. LOL. Ugh GOF is so flat. It’s true that you don’t need to be on key for hard rock – lol.

  • Girl 3 Doors Down?

    I think some body photo shopped those pics? The correct seating appears to be:

    Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry. Ed Sheeran, Drake, and Fun behind them. I posted the pic and likes to the sources below.

  • Girl 3 Doors Down?

    I checked a couple of sources and Taylor is sitting next to Selena with Bruno Mars other side of Selena. With Ed Sheeran and Drake behind them. See below for my source links.

  • Mel432

    I wonder if Adam was photoshopped…

  • YankeeFan08

    Nope. His publicist has confirmed that he will be there.

  • Girl 3 Doors Down?
  • garden gnome

    Oh so sad! Linda and Stevie Nicks were my idols back in the day!

  • Girl 3 Doors Down?

    No drama. The correct seating is Taylor and Selena will be seating together with Bruno Mars on the other side of Selena. I posted the pics and source links. Kanye and Justin Timberlake will sit next to each other.

  • Axxxel

    Oh dear…. I missed Xfactor World… As I said earlier… 9 pm is my bedtime…and I forgot to switch on the TV…

  • Larc

    The Idol Live! tour will be in Reading, PA, at the Sovereign Center tonight. Only 5 more concerts after that. The final one will be in Nashville a week from tonight.

  • Axxxel

    Yeah, Adam should present in the VMA’s for the category most gorgeous looking male popstar in a popvideo.. Sigh… Dream dream…

  • Girl 3 Doors Down?

    That seating chart must of been photo shopped? I posted the correct seating photos and links. Taylor as always will sit next to Selena and Bruno Mars the other side of Selena.

  • JLE12

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/earshot/mtv-vmas-exec-producer-promises-613915

    Adam is presenting or preforming…presenting I would guess 99%

  • Girl 3 Doors Down?

    Some fooled us on purpose. The seating photo shopped?
    I posted the pics and links for the correct seating.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Thanks! lol at Gaga and Katy sitting right next to eachother.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Duplicate

  • Q_3

    Adam is presenting at the VMA’s — seat appears to be in the third row.

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/earshot/mtv-vmas-exec-producer-promises-613915

  • Q_3

    Also confirmed by Jesse Ignjatovic the Exec Producer. Adam is presenting.

  • roaringpen

    No livestream of his set .

  • voco_qara

    She was just on x factor Australia and was very likable on that, I thought

  • roaringpen

    Keith got vids.

  • masacredo

    I love Kylie, just wish that she was on Idol instead of J.HO

  • justmefornow

    Yeah, I saw something about maybe Windup not allowing it if he debuted new material. But also saw something Keith said about posting after Skillet performs. He also got the whole set on video.

    At least this dude liked it, lol.

    Michael McGrath ?@Mike3GolfHurdle 8m
    @DurbinRock Acoustically rocked it!!!!

    ETA: just saw something about the upcoming band POD not authorizing their stream as well.

  • justmefornow

    Yeah, James could sing circles around that lead singer. But some of their songs weren’t half bad. They also have opened for James once before near Seattle.

  • voco_qara

    She is Australian though and so is Keith so it would be kinda odd having two australians on the panel. But I agree she would’ve made a much better judge than jlo

  • Q_3

    Adam is presenting.

  • justmefornow

    LOL. At least he’s selling stuff and making new fans:

    Keith Roberts ?@keithar20 7m
    @DurbinRock you’ve got a crowd at the merchant table. Where are you?

  • Montavilla

    The last interview I remember hearing her do was a guest spot on Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me. She came across as someone very down to Earth and happy with her life.

    It’s amazing to consider how much she did — from bluesy rock to pop to standards, light opera, country, and Latin music. She was such a great singer, and so varied in her interests — I have no doubt she’ll continue to find creative expression and fulfillment.

  • H.A.

    Aren’t the VMA held in Brooklyn this year? I thought Adam was back in LA I guess he never left. I was planning on watching anyway because of all the “drama” (Katy and Gaga) but with Adam presenting it will be worth it now. Gaga is opening and Katy is closing the show. This should be good. Kudos to Adam’s management, with new music (Avicii) and working on his own album getting him back among his music peers is good. It also helps that Jesse Ignjatovic is also one of Idol’s new producers and worked with Adam for VH1 Diva.

    ETA: I was listening to Z100 and they were talking about the iHeart Radio music festival and said the performances they were looking forward to the most was with Queen and Adam Lambert.

  • Incipit

    Very sad news…I had no idea this was a side effect of Parkinsons. We still have her recordings and all the fabulous examples of her amazing vocal talents that crossed so many genres – a truly remarkable artist.

  • lkingcorn

    Because he has several high profile gigs going on. Anyone with any musicality knows he deserved a Grammy nom for Trespassing. Besides all that Adam always brings glamor and a touch of class to events. Any other concerns I can address?

  • justmefornow

    The band on after James was going in and out of the live stream and repeating on a loop. I’m beginning to think that the stream is just f*cked up. They better fix it before Skillet comes on. Btw, their online viewers total went down by half since James’ performance was a no-show, lol.

  • tripp_ncwy

    Hollywood Reporter:
    Dr. Luke Vs. Scooter Braun: Who’d You Rather for ‘American Idol’ Judge?

    “Presumably returning judgeJennifer Lopez has already give her thumbs up to Braun, while Luke was recently spotted at a lunch meeting with Idol executive producer Per Blankens and News Corp.’s David Hill, who oversees both Idol and X Factor.”

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/idol-worship/dr-luke-scooter-braun-whod-613922

  • Incipit

    Good Grief. IDK anything about either one of them – if it’s between the two of them, I don’t actually care, since there’s no way to know what sort of ‘judging’ either of them will do.

    Keith and Ms Lopez are known quantities – kinda sorta. Keith could hopefully be better than he was in the Drama Rama Season, and Jennifer could hardly be worse than she was in the SO w/Goosies Seasons.

    I suppose it’s easy to tell – My expectations are very low. SMH.

  • Larc

    Whichever JLo wants, I’m strongly in favor of the other.

  • Lexie O’Neill

    Scotty and the NC State Chancellor and football coach performing tonight…

    Scotty McCreery singing wagon wheel ???????? https://vine.co/v/hePqTOuJp3X

  • voco_qara

    Neither. It’ll be a very pop heavy panel with both Scooter and Dr Luke being pop producers and JLo already on the panel. There’s not enough versatility. I’m still hoping for Harry Connick Jr for the third spot.

  • L. R. M. L.

    Yes Scotty singing with the Chancellor of his College (NCSU) and
    along with other celebrities, playing golf at the Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic for Cancer research today and tomorrow.

    He is such a well rounded young man. Sports, Education and recording star. He is living his dream and doing it all at the same time.

  • Mel432

    “Kudos to Adam’s management, with new music (Avicii, Nile Rodgers) and working on his own album getting him back among his music peers is good.”

    IMO, credit should go to Nile. I don’t think mgmt is involved with music making and collaborations. I think the labels do that. Adam’s friendship with Nile has done more than what RCA has done recently for Adam. That’s not to say Adam does not have excellent management. But, what do I know?

  • girlygirl

    Collabs can be set up by any number of people — management, labels, publishers, or even by the artists themselves. We don’t know how Nile and Adam met, do we?

  • rihannsu

    We know exactly how Nile and Adam met. It all started with a tweet. Sam Sparro and Adam were writing “Shady” and Adam said it needed some Nile Rodgers guitar so Sam said let’s tweet him. Nile answered and it went from there.

  • Mel432

    On the Avicii album, Nile said he called Adam. That was back in April. Nile said Adam is his “go to guy” or something like that. So, I don’t think Adam’s management had anything to do with their collaborations.

  • alterego

    I don’t think mgmt is involved with music making and collaborations. I think the labels do that. Adam’s friendship with Nile has done more than what RCA has done recently for Adam.

    He had high profile collabs on the TP CD.

  • DragonFly

    Really nice to hear it went well. Hope he didn’t keep fans hanging at the merchandise table. Did he get his cheesehead?

  • Lexie O’Neill

    Scotty at the Jim Valvano Gala in Raleigh with Emmitt Smith…

    “@EmmittSmith22: Look who is here this weekend. http://Instagram.com/p/dau3aZC3HS/

  • girlygirl

    oh ok. Well my original point about lots of different types of people, including managers, setting up collaborations still stands :)

  • justmefornow

    Lol. I have know idea about the cheese head.
    Skillet is about to go on in 5 min. and the stream seems to working better now. – Can’t wait for Keith’s videos.

    Thanks to everyone I met at #rocktheriver. Thanks to all my current fans & to my new fans! You're the reason I get to make music 4 a living????

  • Larc

    Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Dr. Luke will be the 3rd Idol judge along with Keith and JLo despite other names that have recently surfaced. They claim he is closing the deal.

  • roaringpen

    James Durbin performed an acoustic set at Rock the River Festival today including some of his new original material recently recorded for his new album. Here is one of the new songs he has written. He sounds good – would love to hear it with a great backing band. Fans in attendance said that his entire merch table sold out.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJKU0EZgd8c&feature=c4-overview&list=UUURFok4NANR_OGlL-XVR6iQ

  • DragonFly

    “Fans in attendance said that his entire merch table sold out.”

    Didn’t listen to the perf yet—too early in the morning to appreciate anything & thanks in advance for posting it. That line above is worth noting though! Monetarily good for James (I’m sure he likes that part too), but it’s saying a lot more. WU/James – listen up!

  • justmefornow

    thatonegirl ?@kschom78h
    So I got to meet @DurbinRock today!!!:D and I got the last CD of the day!!!! It was so awesome thanks to you! pic.twitter.com/n1VyfI4Gmt

    Yeah, I just saw Keith uploaded the whole set, making my way through them now. Too bad this wasn’t a full band appearance, his vocals blow all those other lead singers off the stage. I hope we hear some news soon about his new band members.

  • justmefornow

    Yeah, just an acoustic performance and he sold out. Now it’s not hard to believe last year on tour that he sold an additional 50k+ more CDs just touring for less than 4 months.

    ***Listen up Windup, get him back on the road soon!!

  • tripp_ncwy

    Just saw a preview of a new movie “The Family” with Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Tommy Lee Jones. Also in the cast is Dianna Agron (Quinn Fabray from Glee).
