CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
First it was the opening night of the professional football season. Now MTV has tried to lay claim to Sept. 6 by booking the 2012 Video Music Awards.
However, politicos and pundits are quick to point out President Barack Obama’s speech to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination is slated for the same night.
That means that some of the biggest names in popular music will be gathering in Los Angeles as some of the biggest names in the Democratic Party gather in Charlotte.
According to CNN, MTV executives are aware of the timing of the awards show and pushed the awards show up an hour to 8 p.m., “to avoid conflict with the Democratic National Convention.”
The Obama campaign has not commented on the awards show schedule.
