The 29th annual MTV Video Awards, produced at Los Angeles' Staples Center on Sept. 6, again rewards the biggest stars, splashiest videos and eye-popping music videos during a broadcast event geared to shake up more familiar awards show conventions. Although 2012 hasn't brought any pre-show headlines to rival last year's confirmation that reigning power couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé were expecting their first child, the show's long history of surprises, scripted and otherwise offers plenty of memorable moments covered in related features here.
The MTV Video Music Awards will air Thursday, Sept. 6, at 8 p.m. ET/7:00 Central on MTV.
