MTV To Air One Direction My First Time Aug 30th
One Direction has taken over America and have had several specials already about them, but they now have a new one! On August 30th, MTV will air a pre-VMA special called One Direction: My First Time. It will be about the boys first time at the MTV Video Music Awards and will also feature other famous acts telling their first VMA stories. You can catch the trailer for the special down at the very bottom and you can catch the actual award show on September 6th. As for the official description of the special, here it is.
One Direction: My First Time” will include appearances from fellow 2012 performers Pink, Green Day and Taylor Swift, who will recall their own first times taking the VMA stage with never-before-heard tales. The VMA vets will offer up some choice wisdom to the One Direction guys, who will take the stage themselves Thursday, September 6, when the show goes live from Staples Center in Los Angeles. They are also up for two Moonmen: Best New Artist and Best Pop Video for their “What Makes You Beautiful” clip.
It certainly sounds like they will be making a big deal about this for them. I would think airing it right before the awards’ show would make more sense, but for whatever reason they disgaree. Either way, they will likely have a record amount of viewers tuning in to see their favorite UK band on TV again. It will be fun to see what other celebrities will tell the guys as tips. I suspect some of them will be funny and others will likely have serious ones. Either way, the boys likely will still be scared of the big night.
How do you feel about another special? I know a lot of people are excited and happy for them, but I do feel like MTV is exploiting them. They really do not need that many specials made about them in under one year. Yes, we know they are talented and special, but they cannot be happy with cameras always watching them for specials about them or even feature them. Plus I wonder how much fans will even see them in the upcoming one or if this is just a way for MTV to use their name for viewers?
