This Monday, the channel, now infamous for now not appearing tune movies, hosts its newest iteration of that tune video-celebrating awards display; it is happening at a hockey area in New Jersey and hosted through a 46-year-old comic whose schtick is that he does not have a clue about any of the nominated artists.
