Duhin’s big night at the 2013 mtv video music awards

Duhin’s Shares His Big Night At The MTV Video Music Awards

Duhin Nanda, LG Social Reporter


An ‘NSYNC ┬áreunion, Bruno Mars performing a new song, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke getting dirty (very dirty) and Jennifer Hudson’s moving collaboration with Macklemore. Did I mention the ‘NSYNC reunion? The 2013 Video Music Awards were full of jaw dropping surprises *insert the picture of the Smith family’s reaction to Miley Cyrus’ performance here*. I am still in disbelief that I was physically present to witness these major moments in music at the Barclays Centre last night.


With Sharlene Chiu doing her thing on the red carpet, I wasn’t expecting anything more than simply sitting back and watching the show that night, but I was lucky that MTV Canada trusted me enough to give me a staff pass that landed me on the red carpet before the show. I got to meet icons like One Direction, Taylor Swift, Ellie Golding, Iggy Azelia, Will Smith, Pharell, Whiz Khalifa, Jimmy Fallon, Naya Riviera, Darren Criss and many more.

So here are my top 3 red carpet moments: 3) Robin Thicke high-fiving me 2) Liam Payne ignoring his aggressive publicist ┬áto get a picture with me, and the winner: 1) Jennifer Hudson telling me I’m cute… Um what?!

So it’s safe to say that it was by far the best night I’ve had and my inner fangirl has been forever satisfied. So thank you MTV Canada and LG Canada for making this happen. I can’t help but wonder how awkward it’ll be for me to jump right back into reality after this surreal experience. Guess all I can do is hope that one day this can go from being my once in a lifetime opportunity to simply becoming my life as a full-time MTV/Much reporter. #DreamJob #I’llBeBack
