2010 MTV Music Video Awards to be biggest ever?

LOS ANGELES, USA The 2010 MTV Music Video awards is hotly anticipated with the likes of Eminem, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift in the running for prizes not to mention Kanye West's return.

This year's VMA lineup includes the likes of Lady Gaga's Bad Romance , competing for Best Video, Justin Bieber for Best New Artist and Eminem's Im Not Afraid in the Video Of The Year. Other artists competing include Beyonce Knowles, Katy Perry, Kesha, B.o.B, Jay Z and Alicia Keys.

The 2009 MTV Video Music Awards show was surrounded by a storm of controversy when Kanye West ran on stage and interrupted Taylor Swift as she was receiving her award. The onscreen diss was criticized by the media and was 2009's biggest entertainment story. Since the episode, West has canceled tours and remained largely out of the spotlight and this year's VMAs will be closely watched as Taylor Swift is tipped to perform a song written by her about the incident.

Kanye West faces an uphill battle to reverse the damage of last year's now infamous incident, and like Chris Brown, is likely to be at the centre of the media's attention tonight.
