2014 MTV VMA Awards: Who Will Be The Talk Of This Year's VMAs?

This Sunday it's the MTV Movie Awards. There's usually one performer who is the talk of the VMAS - of course last year the event was hijacked by a twerking Miley Cyrus. In 2009 it was Kanye West for stopping Taylor Swift's acceptance speech and in 2011 it was Beyonce for announcing that she was pregnant on stage. So who will be the talk of the VMAs this year? Here's what we can look forward to on Sunday night...

1. Taylor Swift is performing 'Shake It Off'

Taylor Swift announced her new song 'Shake It Off' via her livestream on Monday. It's already number one on iTunes, has had over 20 million views on YouTube and was trending worldwide, so her first live performance is bound to be a crowd pleaser. The only question is which Taylor will turn up.

2. There's going to be a lot of talk about Beyonce

Get ready to bow down. Beyonce has EIGHT nominations, is being honoured with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and is performing. She's used to being the talk of the VMAs by now - remember, she revealed her first pregnancy during a performance of 'Love On Top' at the VMAs in 2011.

3. Kim Kardashian will be taking to the stage

Kim Kardashian is joining Gwen Stefani, Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo and three Orange Is The New Black actresses as a presenter at this year's VMAs.

4. Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora perform Black Widow

Rita and Iggy will perform their new single 'Black Widow' for the first time on Sunday. Iggy is nominated for an impressive SEVEN awards this year.

 5. Miley is back

Last year's ceremony was all about Miley Cyrus. It had a little something to do with a nude latex bikini, a foam finger and Robin Thicke. MTV have confirmed that Miley Cyrus will be attending. To twerk or not to twerk, that is her question.

6. Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande will perform 'Bang Bang'

Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande will open the VMAs with 'Bang Bang' and will launch the world premiere of their new video. Beats have launched a series of TV ads, teasing what's to come

7. Sam Smith is performing

Sam Smith has been nominated for the 'Artist To Watch' award and Best Male for 'Stay With Me.' He will also be the last artist to perform on Sunday night.
