MuchMusic Video Awards (MMVA) 2013 is under way, and the show kicks off with a “Gangnam Style” from PSY. “Stop taking pictures and dance,” the Korean ‘gentleman’ told the cheering live audience. Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift and American Idol 2012 winner Phillip Phillips are some of the celebrities gracing and tweeting about MMVA.
The MMVA is an annual event presented by the Canadian music video channel MuchMusic to honour the year's best music videos. Justin Bieber, one of the country’s biggest international celebs, is nominated this year for Fave Artist and International Video by a Canadian. Here are some of what celebrities and MMVA 2013 updaters are sharing via the Twitterverse.
Demi Lovato tweeted: CANADA!!! Can't wait to perform on the MMVAs tonight! #mmva
The pop star graced the MMVA red carpet looking chic and fab in black.

Taylor Swift also showed up for the fans at the red carpet, looking simple but chic. GLEE’s Naya Rivera tweeted about the event a day prior, building up more thrill for the fans. Naya tweeted: Hello Toronto! Super excited for the MMVA's tomorrow! Avril Lavigne also tweeted about MMVA a day ahead of the event:

The CW’s Arrow lead Stephen Amell is running for best cousin, so he brings along “@toribolte and her friends.” The soon-to-be daddy is looking very much a debonair gentleman as usual.
Phillip Phillips also performs at MMVA 2013. He teased fans with this cute photo of him with pop star Taylor Swift. (Cue rumour mill?)
