Our Samsung winners Kayla and Ashley got to work at the MMVAs!
Winning, ever wonder what your chances are? Believing you have a chance is worthwhile.
With a few simple clicks, I had entered and won an all-inclusive trip to the MMVAs in Toronto to “Work with the Crew”. Included was round trip flight for two, accommodations, car service, $500 cash, two Samsung GalaxyS5 phones, and crew wristbands.
The first day we toured the Much Headquarters, lounged on the rooftop patio, and watched Imagine Dragons during their soundcheck. Shortly after, we met with a Samsung representative and the Much Digital crew to map out our plan for the Samsung GS5 livestream cam. The livestream was one of six livestream cameras that were being used during the show.
MMVA day: we walked the red carpet and then we were quickly escorted directly behind the scenes. We waited on standby, and watched the red carpet arrivals from the backstage TV screens. During the show, we held the Samsung Galaxy S5 livestream camera, and walked from each stage to capture the performances from the fan and backstage perspectives.
When the show was over, we made our way to the Uncensored Lounge and media offices. There we saw many artists roaming around, we watched Marianas Trench and Ed Sheeran during their interviews.
We really felt like a part of the team and we learned how many hours of work goes into the two-hour show. It is incredible and eye-opening; our appreciation for the crew had grown immensely by the end of our weekend!
The night was still young and even though we had guestlist for an MMVA afterparty, we didn’t make it. We agreed it would be way more fun to party with the crew! The Arkells performed, and we danced the night away! Good times were had by all, and remember that one time that Ed Sheeran was…ah, what happens at the afterparty stays at the after-party 😉
Ashley and I are extremely grateful for this MMVA experience, and would like thank everyone at Bell Media and Samsung.
Kayla & Ashley

Missy Elliott is either gearing up to release her first album since 2005’s incredible The Cookbook or she’s just toying with us. We hope it’s the former. The groundbreaking rapper made her triumphant return to the stage during last year’s Super Bowl performance, appearing alongside headliner Katy Perry. Elliott followed up the performance later in […]
To most people, the Super Bowl means the biggest football game of the year. To the rest of us, it means an incredible halftime show, million-dollar commercials, and new movie trailers with seemingly never-ending interruptions from a football game. How rude. It could be difficult at times tonight to separate the movie trailers from the […]
For most artists, performing at the halftime show during Super Bowl 50 would make for a pretty big weekend. But most artists aren’t Beyoncé. The singer stunned in her guest performance during Coldplay’s headlining show tonight, engaging in a sing off with fellow guest Bruno Mars and bringing girl power to an all-male sporting event. […]
When we heard that halftime headliners Coldplay would be joined at Super Bowl 50 by Beyoncé and Bruno Mars, we were first excited, then a bit confused by how it would all work. That’s a lot of different genres in one spot. But it did more than work. It moved. Yup, we were moved. The […]
When Lady Gaga told the NFL yesterday (watch here) that performing the Star Spangled Banner at today’s Super Bowl 50 was one of the biggest honours of her career, she wasn’t kidding. The New York native couldn’t have looked more patriotic unless she dressed up as a replica of the Statute of Liberty. Actually, we’re […]
