 Panic! At The Disco," said MTV President, Christina Norman. "This is the
 beginning of what will no doubt be the most star-studded event and the
 hottest ticket of the year."
     "New York City is proud to welcome the MTV Video Music Awards back to
 its rightful place at Radio City Music Hall and we are certainly happy that
 this year's show is expected to generate more than 25 million dollars in
 economic activity for our hotels, restaurants and other attractions," said
 Mayor Bloomberg. "MTV has transformed music and popular culture unlike any
 other medium before it and since its birth. It's no coincidence that MTV
 started here in New York City and catapulted itself and modern music into

 we're glad to have the VMA's back."
