MTV Has VMAs on Lockdown!

5/1/2007 8:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You want your VMAs? Pay attention -- this year you're only going to get one shot.

TMZ has learned MTV is set to announce tomorrow that the 2007 Video Music Awards will be held in Las Vegas on September 9 at the Palms Hotel and Casino. Not only will the awards show air that Sunday, but MTV plans on turning Vegas out that entire weekend. Time to book that Southwest flight!

In addition, what happens in Vegas really will stay in Vegas. The network, notorious for running its awards shows over and over ad nauseum, has changed its tune. This year's VMAs will only be seen once, broadcast live in its original form. Remixed versions of the show will be run, created by and for you -- the viewer. If you only want to watch the rap-related awards -- that's what you'll get.

We're told MTV thought the Palms' owners, uber-celebufriends the Maloofs, would be a perfect fit for this year's event.

Think we can get a comp buffet (or two)?

The MTV awards sucks i dont really watch it because its not that interesting 2 me and plus their performances suck and the only reason why they are changing the location is to hide the fact that its a boring award show and that BET has the number one award show on cable t.v. Also the network sucks i dont even know why the call it the video music awards because the bearly play video and the only time the do that is in the early morning when nobody is awake and durin trl which sucks too and all they play is reality show so the award show shoul be called RSA reality show awards. So that concludes that i wont be tunning in this year.

WOW!!! I'm booking my ticket now. This is awesome for Vegas...

partying and gambling is a given.

Oh boy, another NBA All Star weekend complete with thuggery, grabbing, robbing, raping, and even a murder or 3 or 4 thrown in for good measure.

I hope this time the City of Vegas takes charge of the security and not leave it to MTV like they did with the NBA which led to a fiasco--ask anyone who works there. And dont tell me the MVA crowd is any better---it aint the stars, its the "fans" and tagger ons that bring the trouble

I bet they are doing it to make sure Britney shows up since she probably won't show if it's in Florida or NYC

A-yo Leroy!    

i just hope the awards aren't gonna be as wack as they were last year. Every year, the show gets worse and worse. Last year, hardly any celebrities showed up! they all went to the EMA's instead.

Donna #10,

I'm not sure how easy it is for the general public to get into these types of events.
You should try contacting the Palms or MTV to find out about tickets. One thing is
for sure there will be a lot of celebrities in Vegas for the VMAs pre and post parties.
