Miley Cyrus made headlines with her twerking at the 2013 MTV VMA ceremony. Last year, she won VIdeo of the Year for "Wrecking Ball." And this year, she will have even more time in the spotlight as she is hosting this Sunday's awardscast that will air live across the MTV family of networks. Asked about her plans, Cyrus says, “I didn’t want this VMAs to be like they’ve been in the past. Last year there wasn’t even a host, so there was no energy.” How do you think she will do?
Our forum posters, many of whom are Hollywood insiders, have been furiously debating this topic. Below, just a sampling of their comments on whether Cyrus will soar or sink as MTV VMA host. Now we want to hear from you. Vote in our poll below and then jump into the conversation HERE. And be sure to enter our MTV VMA prediction contest too. You can get started at the bottom of this post by predicting who will win Video of the Year.
KyleBailey: I don't know what will be the most horrendous, Miley hosting, Kanye's Vanguard Award, or Taylor Swift's destined wins.
Noe: She fits this show. Whatever you want that to mean.
Final2: She's gonna be super dirty and try to hard to be "outrageous".
Jade: I think she will do okay. I don't think any moments will top her performance in 2013 or that the show will be on of the best. I think she was a good pick for a host because she will bring ratings, but the problem is that her shock value is gone.
kingofrapmusic17: She'll sure make the show interesting. Though I agree with Jade saying that the shock value is gone. We expect her to go crazy. We won't be surprised by her antics like we were back in 2013.
