Who will win the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards?

This Sunday marks the first time MTV will probably have played videos all year-long. What with horrifyingly awful and annoying Teen Moms and moronic Jersey Shore shenanigans taking up most of their airtime, it’s easy to forget the channel use to stand for Music Television… Well, at least once a year, they do concentrate on videos with the annual Video Music Awards and we’ll see some big names performing including nominees Adele, Beyonce, Pitbull, Bruno Mars, Lil Wayne and Lady Gaga. But just who will win the moon men? Well, you can bet Perry and Gaga have good shots because these are a fan-voted awards ceremony (except for the tech categories like Direction and Editing). And one person who will grab an award is Britney Spears who’s receiving a special kudos…. So, just who do I think the fans will choose as this year’s winners? Take a look at my big bold predictions below, and for more on the show, airing Sunday night 8/28 on MTV, head here.
