MTV Video Awards
Normally held in September the MTV Video awards will be bought forward this year, so they won't clash with the anniversary of September 11th.
The MTV Music Video awards honour the best music videos of the year.
They are televised live on the cable and satellite music video channel in the US and last year drew an audience of 50 million.
Last year, British DJ Fatboy Slim was the night's biggest winner with his video Weapon of Choice, directed by Spike Jonze and starring Christopher Walken.
