“This is huge, wait this is bigger than huge, this is bigger than what’s bigger than huge.” I’m overwhelmed with excitement….sh*t is about to get real.” – Kevin Hart
“I think what makes the VMA’s such a powerful night is the unpredictability of it all and the versatility of artists – all from different genres and it’s kind of the most rock and roll show out there.” – P!nk
