While [artist id="3132138"]LMFAO[/artist] acted as our red-carpet VMA DJs last year, Sunday will mark their first time at the main show, where their zombie-themed “Party Rock” video is up for Best Choreography.
So how is it that the dance-music duo are VMA virgins?
“This might be the first time we were invited, or we might not have gotten [the invitation] in the mail,” SkyBlu joked to MTV News on Saturday (August 27), just one day before the show takes place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. “The last 28 invitations got lost.”
His partner in party crimes, RedFoo, added: “We always move every year, and the Postal Service hasn’t figured it out. And we always get the things, like, ‘That was three months ago; could have went.’ ”
Well, now that they’re going, LMFAO have some words for their competition in the category, which includes Britney Spears (“Till the World Ends”), Bruno Mars (“The Lazy Song”), Lady Gaga (“Judas”) and Beyoncé (“Run the World [Girls]“).
“We gonna have to go ahead and take that,” SkyBlu warned. “We’re gonna have to go take that back to the shack … we’ve already won. The whole world’s shuffling. We made so many people happy [and] so many people made us happy. I feel like we’ve already won, so thank you.”
The 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards will air live Sunday from Los Angeles at 9 p.m. ET/PT, following the Selena Gomez-hosted pre-show at 8. See the list of nominees, revisit last year’s highlights and vote for Best New Artist by visiting VMA.MTV.com.
