It's finally here! Today is the day when we reflect on all the "Big & Best of 2012" with our massive eight-hour live stream, which kicked off at noon ET, across all digital properties, including MTV.com, VH1.com, CMT.com and ComedyCentral.com, with eight hours of programming and highlights from MTV, VH1, Comedy Central, CMT and MTV2.
It's a day jam-packed with interviews, roundtable discussions, performances and even a fan army competition. We've got you covered with the big and best highlights from MTV. (For the full list, check out BigandBestof2012.com.)
And it kicks off now with "Adorn" singer Miguel bringing the hotness and sexiness to the "Big & Best" stage. But, the fun doesn't end there, with a very special episode of "RapFix Live" taking place, featuring Ma$e and A$AP Rocky, and appearances from MTV's very own Vinny Guadagnino as well as Carly Rae Jepsen (who will count down her favorite moments), "The Walking Dead" star Norman Reedus also making stops throughout the day.
In between all that, every hour we will narrow down the "Last Fans Standing" competition until one artist and fan group is, well, left standing. It's still anyone's game though as all day long, challenges will continue to take place until an artist and his or her fans come out on top.
But the A-list guests don't end there. Before the day comes to a close, Taylor Swift has a very special gift for her fans one day before her 23rd birthday, and Bruno Mars will get personal about his album Unorthodox Jukebox.
