2013 MTV Video Music Awards Nominations / Lady Gaga, Kanye West Top A-List Performers / 'N Sync Reunion at 30th VMAs? [LIST] 

The 30th annual MTV Video Music Awards air tonight from the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn.

Lady Gaga will kick off tonight's VMAs with a performance of "Applause" the first single off of her upcoming album ARTPOP.

Kanye West will make his seventh appearance on the VMA stage with the latest single off of Yeezus, "BLKKK SKKN HEAD".

Possibly, the most hyped bit of news for this year's event: Justin Timberlake will accept the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Sure the award is an incredible honor, but reports last week flooded the Internet that Timberlake would be joining his former 'N Sync band mates for a reunion performance. If the rumors are true, it would be the first time JT, J.C, Lance, Joey, and Chris joined each other onstage since their Bee Gees medley at the 203 Grammy Awards.
