The MuchMusic Video Awards are celebrating their 25th anniversary by being simulcast live for the first time across Canada on both MuchMusic and CTV (and CTV Go) at 9 p.m.

The MMVAs take place at MuchMusic headquarters at the corner of Queen and John in Toronto but performances also spill out onto stages on the surrounding streets.

“With the CTV simulcast we ensure millions of music fans across the country experience the energy of this amazing show,” said Phil King, President, CTV, Sports, and Entertainment Programming in a statement.

Over the years, the show’s performance highlights have included Lady Gaga’s bra-shooting fireworks, Flo Rida zip-lining onto the stage, Kanye West’s first performance of Jesus Walks with a then-unknown John Legend at the piano, Justin Bieber surprising Miley Cyrus on stage during Party in the USA, and Lenny Kravitz and The Guess Who performing American Woman.

There’s also the MMVA red carpet special famous for inspiring innovative entrances including Katy Perry riding down the carpet in a working ice cream truck.
