    Eminem will open the MTV VMAs this Sunday, September 12, with what looks to be an incredible performance. MTV general manager Stephen Friedman said Em, who is nominated for eight Moon Men statues, will open Sunday's ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in downtown LA, which has been transformed with a sprawling white set reminiscent of the out-of-this-world Theme Building at the Los Angeles International Airport, reports The Associated Press. The stage design includes a giant rotating billboard, curvy catwalk, circular performance space and two massive video screens that will serve as curtains. VMA executive producer Jesse Ignjatovic said the space required about 2,000 orchestra seats to be removed from the Nokia Theatre. That's what I call dismantling.

    "Every year, we try to have a theme and purpose beyond just giving awards away," said Ignjatovic. "This year, being back in Los Angeles, we really gravitated toward mid-century modern architecture and the pop culture of the '50s, like the youth-oriented rebellion films Rebel Without a Cause and Wild Ones. It's a very LA kind of a set."

    Are you going to be watching the VMAs and it's LA-themed set on Sunday, September 12? How many VMAs will Eminem pick up?
