Ten days my friends! Ten more days until the 2013 MMVAs!
Next week begins the start of MMVA rehearsals and of course, the only way to keep the energy up during a long day is with a dope playlist! Today, Liz and I brainstormed together to come up with an essential hit list.
Check out what we decided on below. It’s mixed with MMVA guests both past and present and some of our all-time favourite classic summer songs. It’ll be my job to make sure these hits are ready to go on my BlackBerry so we can have an impromptu dance party wherever and whenever the mood strikes.
Miley Cyrus – We Can’t Stop
Kick starting the summer with a new party anthem from past MMVA co-host, Miley Cyrus? Check. We Can’t Stop is already on Liz’s smartphone in heavy rotation.
Armin van Buuren feat. Trevor Guthrie – This is What it Feels Like
2013 MMVA performer Armin van Buuren will have the crowd going crazy when he hits the stage on June 16th.
Serena Ryder – What I Wouldn’t Do
Serena has three nominations under her belt this year, including Video of the Year, Director of the Year and Rock/Alternative Video of the Year, all for her song Stompa. We want to introduce you to What I Wouldn’t Do. Warning: This is going to be stuck in your head all day long.
Demi Lovato – Heart Attack
Does this one even need an explanation? We’re counting down the sleeps until we get to see Demi on our home turf.
Robyn – Call your Girlfriend
As this list shows, Liz and I are really inspired by powerful women. You don’t get much more powerful than Robyn.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Ray Dalton- Can’t Hold Us
You can’t stop team Liz when the MMVAs take off, Macklemore knows how it is. This year Macklemore and Ryan Lewis ft. Wanz are nominated for International Group of the Year for their anthem, Thrift Shop.
Selena Gomez – Come and Get It
Your 2011 co-host Selena Gomez definitely has one of the hottest singles of the summer.
Taylor Swift – 22
Taylor’s BFF Selena is obviously a MMVA veteran, and now our main girl is finally taking the stage as a presenter, herself. So. Excited.
deadmau5 ft. Chris James – The Veldt
Up for three nominations this year, we still have Deadmau5 fever. The Veldt is up for Post-Production of the Year, Dance Video of the Year and Your Fave Artist or Group. Vote for your fave here!
