MTV Video Music Awards moved up to avoid Obama speech conflict
MTV says Tuesday that it will run the show an hour earlier than usual so as not to conflict with Obama's speech. The VMAs will air from 8-10 p.m. ET, while the president is scheduled to speak from the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., after 10 p.m.
Last year's awards show was watched by 12.4 million people with the highlight of the 2011 VMAs being Beyonce's pregnancy announcement -- beat that, Mr. President.
