For the second year in a row, BC rockers Marianas Trench are leading the MMVAs with a staggering six nominations. The Canadian pop rockers are up for Pop Video of the Year and MuchFACT Video of the Year, Video of the Year, Director of the Year, Your Fave Artist/Group and Your Fave Video. The three-time MMVA performers are adding another performance to their impressive history with today’s announcement that Marianas Trench will be joining Demi Lovato, Down With Webster, Armin van Buuren, Avril Lavigne, Classified, Ed Sheeran, Phillip Phillips, Serena Ryder and co-host PSY.
Marianas Trench’s history with the MMVAs includes fighting ninjas, sharing a 10-foot sandwich with the crowd, wearing Lady Gaga’s exploding bra, arriving in a hot tub, and walking the red carpet in a bubble. It may seem crazy to think that the guys in Marianas Trench have more up their sleeves for their upcoming performance at the 2013 MMVAs, but we know that when it comes to Josh, Matt, Mike and Ian, expect big things.
In addition to today’s performer announcement of Marianas Trench, Down With Webster and Armin van Buuren featuring Trevor Guthrie, the presenter list for the 2013 MMVAs got a big dose of star power, including The Big Jingle performers Austin Mahone and Cody Simpson, MMVA nominees Billy Talent and Mia Martina, Platinum-selling artist Danny Fernandes, viral sensations The Janoskians, singer-songwriter Nikki Williams, Revenge actor Josh Bowman, Degrassi star Luke Bilyk, and Teen Wolf’s Tyler Hoechlin.
Today’s star-studded list of presenters joins the amazing list of previously announced presenters, including Pretty Little Liars stars Lucy Hale and Shay Mitchell, Arrow’s Stephen Amell, Pitch Perfect’s Brittany Snow, The Big Bang Theory’s Kunal Nayyar, Glee’s Naya Rivera, Suits’ Patrick J. Adams and MMVA winner Shawn Desman.
