    MIAMI, July 25 /PRNewswire/ -- MTV: Music Television today announced the
 nominees for the "2005 MTV Video Music Awards."  Green Day topped the list
 with eight nominations, six nods for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and two for
 "American Idiot." Gwen Stefani and Missy Elliott follow with six nods each and
 U2 nabbed five nominations.   The 2005 VMAs will broadcast live from American
 Airlines Arena in Miami, FL on Sunday, August 28, 2005 at 8:00PM (LIVE ET/Tape
 Delayed PT).
     It was also announced that multifaceted entertainment powerhouse Diddy
 will host the 22nd annual awards show.  In addition, Kanye West, Kelly
 Clarkson, and Green Day have been announced to perform.  Hip-hop master West
 will debut a single from his highly anticipated sophomore album, "Late
 Registration."  Pop superstar Clarkson will perform a song from her
 multi-platinum album, "Breakaway."  Top nominee Green Day will perform a
 single from their multi-platinum album, "American Idiot."  This is the first
 in a rapidly growing list of performers and celebrity guests to be announced
 for the star-studded event.  Also, for first-time, the VMAs will be scored
 with original music composed by hip-hop superstar producer Lil Jon and
 producer Mike Shinoda, of 3x VMA winner Linkin Park, whose side project "Fort
 Minor" is being released this winter. Viewers will get a chance to download
 the original music as ringtones exclusively on *MTV on their Virgin Mobile
 phones.
     Some key elements of the show were also teased today.  With water as an
 underlying theme, the most massive and elaborate water effects ever produced
 in an awards show will be engineered in the arena by the same production
 company that erected the fountain in front of the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.
 Also, there will be live performances staged at remote locations to showcase
 key locales around Miami.  In the center of the arena, five performance stages
 will be built and will be surrounded by over 1000 audience members made up of
 South Floridians.  A limited number of tickets to the VMAs will go on sale to
 the public sometime in August.  Comcast Cable will be promoting the one-day
 only ticket sales opportunity.  More information will be available on Comcast
 Cable for more details or by visiting VMAINFO.MTV.COM.
     Similar to last year, celebrities will arrive in their extravagant yachts,
 and will also pull up in their personally owned tricked out cars staging the
 first ever car show extravaganza on the red carpet.  As the celebrities
 arrive, viewers will get tours of these cars from the talent themselves.  The
 pre-show has been extended to two hours to fit in all the anticipated action.
 Moreover, the VMAs will be presented on multiple MTV platforms this year
 giving viewers new ways to experience the show.  Exclusively through MTV
 Overdrive, the network's hybrid broadband channel, MTV viewers will have
 unprecedented access to the VMAs, beyond the TV screen.  More details on all
 of the above will be announced in the coming weeks.
     "Every year we have to out do ourselves and this year is no exception -
 the VMAs will be experienced in more places and on more platforms than ever
 before in our history," said Christina Norman, President of MTV.  "Between
 Diddy, who is the ultimate showman & entertainer, and the diverse roster of
 performers already locked in, this show is already shaping up to be an
 unforgettable end of summer bash."
