It's finally here—the 2010 Video Music Awards! Before the curtain rises at the Nokia Theatre, we'll have all the behind-the-scenes scoop from the soon-to-be-not-so-pristine white carpet. Who will make the most memorable entrance? Who will be the night's biggest fashion winners—and losers? Our carpet insider Jocelyn Vena will be reporting live with all the details! So stick with Hollywood Crush throughout the VMA pre-show (HIT REFRESH OFTEN) for your insider pass to the star-studded evening!
6:45 Welcome to Hollywood Crush's VMA white carpet live blog! Please tread lightly as our carpet stains easily.
6:50 30 Seconds to Mars just pulled up on bikes. Listen, it's their So-Called Life! (Right Jared Leto?) Deadmau5 is also here in his mouse head. And here they are, the cast of "Jersey Shore." Someone's been giving them glam lessons!
7:10 Who are you guys most excited to see tonight? We can't wait for the "Glee" cast! And we have a feeling Selena Gomez will hit a fashion high note, for sure!
7:30 Lo Bosworth looks stunning in a gold brocade, one-shoulder dress! We also caught up with the American cast of the upcoming MTV show "Skins"! The carpet is quickly becoming a sea of bodies!
7:35 VMA nominee Jason Derulo is rocking the male trend of the night...a leather jacket and black skinny jeans! More of the "Jersey Shore" crew is here!!! JWoww is in a black, one-shoulder dress with sparkle detail. No Snooki...yet!
7:36 Gagagagaga is here!
7:38 "True Blood"'s Joe Manganiello is here, sporting a leather jacket. What a tall drink of water! We're definitely DVRing the "TB" finale tonight. Gotta stay up until the wee hours to catch that one!
7:40 Gaga is here opting for glam rather than weird. She's sporting a feather Mohawk hat, blue highlighted hair and a green, gold and rust-colored gown with taffeta detailing and a religious image on it. She's flanked by people in military get-ups.
7:45 Gaga just gave Sway a huuuuuge hug!! Besties!!!
7:50 Florence of Florence and The Machine looks like an amazing goddess in her lace and sequin gold gown. The corset detail puts it over the edge (in a good way!). "True Blood" costars Evan Rachel Wood (in leopard) and Joe M are catching up!
7:55 Ciara is killing it, leaving little to the imagination in her feather and lace dress. She almost collided with Jared Leto!
Mini mob: Sean Kingston, Travie McCoy, Kid Cudi and Drake all within feet of one another! Worlds colliding! Also part of the madness is "Glee"'s Cory Monteith. Very tall, very dimpled when he smiles!
P.S. Snooki's got bangs now! (She bangs! She bangs!)
8:00 Emma Stone just arrived. In leather. She gets an Easy A...get it?
8:01 And the pre-show starts...NOW!!
8:01 Hayley Williams is here, as is Katy Perry who exchanged a cold glance with ex Travie McCoy. The stare may have been cold, but she looks hot in a nude-colored dress with black lace detailing and a white skirt.
8:02 Drake wants to make the ladies feel special tonight. Are you feeling it?
8:03 White carpet status: It still looks pretty clean! How long will it last?
8:04 It's pretty hard to believe that Paramore's Hayley Williams just met her collab partner B.o.B this week! "He's great," she says. "I was really excited about it."
8:06 Our girl SuChin Pak is the "rose among the thornes" as Trey Songz says. Both Trey and Ne-Yo are looking super-hot, no?
8:07 Update: Travie was totally scoping out Katy chatting with Sway. Rick Ross and Pauly D are taking iPhone pics together. One word: Wow!
8:08 Katy says she feels like an ice skater. We kind of agree. Ice Capades after-party, anyone? Um, can we also talk about that Russell Brand manicure? Crazy sauce!!
8:10 JUSTIN BIEBER IS HERE! MORE TO COME!
8:11 Penn Badgley alert!!!! He's wearing jeans and leather jacket. Okay, I get it. We need something else!
8:15 Biebs is here with Usher. He's in super skinny black jeans, a tuxedo vest and a black T-shirt. Usher's wearing the tux jacket. Twinsies? FYI: Pandemonium!
8:18 Drake+Bieber just hugged! Oh, Canada!
8:19 Lady Gaga just won the first two Moonmen of the night: Best Dance Video and Best Collaboration! We have a feeling this is going to be the night of Gaga.
8:20 How are we feeling about Snooki's bangs? Discuss.
8:23 30 Seconds to Mars just pedaled up the white carpet. The band's entrance was inspired by Jared's friends who do mass nighttime bike rides. How scared are you by his bike gang?
8:25 Dear Selena Gomez: You look like a goddess in your silver strapless gown with blue sequin detailing. Wow!
8:27 Usher and The Biebs! Justin's been playing the drums since he was 2. Who knew?
8:30 Justin B and Selena G just hugged. The world might explode from cuteness overload!
8:32 Nikki Minaj's performance outfit is crazy—crazy awesome! It kind of reminds us of a kickass Judy Jetson!
8:34 Will.I.Am is rocking black from head to toe. Literally!
8:35 Hottie alert! Justin Timberlake and his "Social Network" pal Andrew Garfield are here. Wowza!!!
8:40 It's the "Jackass" cast. Watch your back, Jim!
8:45 SuChin's got our girl, Ashley Greene! Ashley (who was our style reporter last year) says she's hoping to meet Lady Gaga tonight. Aren't we all?
8:46 Sway's got "TB" hotties Evan and Joe. They're presenting the VMA Professional Awards, and Evan is premiering her new Gucci Guilty perfume commercial tonight. (Did we mention it costars hottie Chris Evans? We'll def be watching that very closely!)
8:50 As the carpet starts to wind down, Ke$ha's here flaunting leather, a long braid and sky high heels. Fierce!
8:51 That sneak peek of Kanye's "Runaway" has totally piqued our interest. What do you think?
8:52 We agree with SuChin: It's all about rocker chic tonight. Is Ke$ha seriously wearing a garbage bag from Home Depot?
8:54 Who's your best-dressed so far tonight? As expected, we love Selena!
8:57 Sway is presenting Lady Gaga with the first two Moonmen of the night! Gaga won't spill how many wardrobe changes she brought, but this first outfit is from Alexander McQueen. Lady Gaga's entourage is from SLDN.org, an organization that seeks to end Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
9:00 And that's the end of the carpet folks. For more live blog goodness during the VMAs, check out MTV's Newsroom blog! Thanks for staying with Hollywood Crush, and check back tomorrow for lots of goodies from tonight's festivities!
