The MTV Video Music Awards is an award show. The show awards recognition to the best in the music video medium and is presented by the MTV cable channel. The MTV Video Music Award was originally planned to be an alternative to the Grammy Awards in the video category. But no one expected that the award would become as famous as the “Super Bowl.” Later, it was renamed as “Super Bowl for Youth” in recognition of its ability to draw millions of youth every year. You can watch MTV Video Music Awards on streaming devices like Roku, Firestick, Apple TV, and other devices.

The MTV Video Music Award was first held in 1984 in New York. Seventeen years later, the award show has become one of the most coveted awards in the music industry. The award represents the statue of an astronaut on the moon holding an MTV flag in his hand. The show will be held every year either in late August or mid-September.
