1. Miley Cyrus Is Hosting: If you recall the singer's performance with Robin Thicke at the 2013 VMAs, that in itself is enough of a reason to watch this show. Miley recently told the New York Times the whole convo about her hosting the MTV VMAs started with MTV president Van Toffler. "It was his last year," she said. "He's leaving, and so he can't get fired. He was like, "I want to do something crazy — I want you to host the V.M.A.s, because I want that to be my last shebang." You better believe she's prepared to bring it.

2. The Performers: There are so many performances we can't wait to see this year. Nick Jonas will rock the stage at the pre-show, then at the main show, Justin Bieber is set to hit the stage, as well as Demi Lovato, The Weeknd, Pharrell Williams, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Tori Kelly, Twenty One Pilots and A$AP Rocky. Nicki Minaj is also set to open the show. So pumped.

3. There Might Be a Sweet Taylor-Kanye Moment: Rumors are flying that Taylor Swift might present Kanye West with his Vanguard award. Although they've since squashed the beef stemming from his infamous stage-jacking moment at the 2009 MTV VMAs, Taylor giving Kanye that award would still be an epic thing to see. We're not only crossing our fingers that this happens, but that Kanye performs. He puts on one heck of a show.

4. The Surprise Element: It's the VMAs, and with Miley hosting and Kanye in the audience, anything can happen. Not only that, but there's a chance things might get a little awkward between Nicki and Miley, given Miley's recent comments regarding Nicki's rant about not getting nominated for Video of the Year.

5. Britney Spears Will Be There: Yassss! While we were hoping Britney would be performing at this year's VMAs, she will be on hand and presenting an award, so we'll take what we can get. And it's clear we're not the only ones excited about her presence at this year's show. When the Biebs found out he would be sitting by her, he couldn't stop kissing her...sorta.
