All Access…

It’s the show that always manages to bring viewers superstar musical performances and surprises (remember Bey’s baby bump announcement last year?). Airing live tonight (8/7c) we can’t wait to see what happens on stage this year at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards (VMA). But before the stage lights turn on at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA, we bring you these behind-the-scenes moments…

MUSICAL CHAIRS…It looks like the three most nominated artists will be watching the show together. Do you think RiRi minds that Katy Perry got the seat next to Drake?


MEET THE PRESS…Show host Kevin Hart poses with U.S. Gymnastics team members (left to right) Gabby Douglas, Kyla Ross and McKayla Maroney during the VMA press conference.


RIHANNA @ REHEARSALS…The star arrived just after 10 PM last night at the Staples Center for VMA rehearsals for her big opening performance. The wardrobe: a white Celine Paris t-shirt, ripped blue jeans and the Cleveland Cavalier-edition Air Jordan #4. The hair: cropped and chic.


CHILLIN’…MTV’S Sway (left) with VMA show host Kevin Hart backstage during show rehearsals.


ON KEY…Alicia Keys at the VMA photo shoot shows off her cropped tresses styled into a glam pompadour.
