The Stars have descended upon Toronto for the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards and while preparations are well under-way over at the Station’s Queen Street Headquarters with Soundchecks taking place throughout the day, several Guests and Performers are just now arriving. Several Fans today not only got a Sneak Peek of tomorrow night’s performances, but some were even lucky enough to meet the Performers including Co-Host PSY, who was gracious to stop for Snaps earlier today with Fans! Others like Armin Van Buuren, Avril Lavigne, Phillip Phillips and more graced the stage today.
Meanwhile on the other end of the City, we were lucky enough to witness several of tomorrow’s Presenters arrive including the likes of Josh Bowman (Revenge), Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars), Kunal Nayyar (Big Bang Theory), Naya Rivera (Glee), Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars), Popstar Cody Simpson and this year’s MMVAs “It Couple” Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect, Hairspray) and Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf). Red-hot Arrow Star Stephen Amell, who hails from Toronto, already has been in town for a bit in advance of the Show.
Meanwhile, Australian Internet Sensations The Janoskians have been causing quite a rage at their Hotel, requiring their Security to step-it-up a bit as their hoards of female Fans shower them with attention.
And although simultaneously in town for her Red Tour at Rogers Centre, Taylor Swift and Tourmate Ed Sheeran are expected to grace the Queen Street Stage tomorrow and some are saying they just might perform their latest Single Everything Has Changed as a surprise.
The 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards air tomorrow night at 9:00 PM EST on both MuchMusic and Fuse.
Season Eleven Winner of American Idol, Phillip Phillips arrived in Toronto a couple days ago to promote his debut Disc from Universal Music Canada, The World from the Other Side of the Moon. Up and at ’em early, Phillips had a busy Press Day yesterday which had him at MuchMusic for a taping and today he performed live on CityTV‘s Breakfast Television.
Phillips is making the most of his Visit to the City and tonight, Fans in the east end will have a chance to see him live as he appears at Pickering Town Centre at 5:30 PM for a Autograph Signing. The handsome 22-year-old will be meeting Fans who purchase a copy of his Disc at HMV.
In addition to touring with Adult Contemporary-Pop Veterans Matchbox Twenty next year, Phillips just released his new Single Gone, Gone, Gone.
