The MTV Video Music Awards took place while I as in NYC, so naturally I went to see all of the red carpet arrivals! When I walked up all of the surrounding streets were packed with people. I finally found a place on the side of Radio City and I actually got to see some pretty cool stuff. The first person I saw was Jimmy Fallon of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and SNL fame.
He walked from the NBC studios that are located right across the street from The Radio City Music Hall. Sean Paul and Katy Perry walked by that same area but my pictures of them are blurry. After a little more waiting the red carpet arrivals started and they just started getting better as the night went through. All American Rejects came on a parade float with a full marching band playing "Gives you Hell"
Taylor Swift showed up in a white horse and carriage and Gaga came with Kermit The Frog. I think my favorite had to be seeing Pink arrive to the red carpet on a NYC fire truck. It was really fun tweeting about all of the arrivals before they showed up on television. The only bad thing about the spot I was standing in was that I could only see the back of the celeb's heads. It was like I was watching a SNL skit where they could not find cast members that looked like the celebs so they just showed their backs. I would hear the names being called and all I would see is hair. It was still amazing though. I also got to witness the Taylor Swift performance. The extras, dancers, and taxi cabs for that performance were waiting outside long before the awards even started. Watching the red carpet arrivals was definitely one of the highlights of my NYC trip. Next year I am going for an actual seat inside!!
