The 2019 MTV Video Music Awards have a new home: Newark.

The network announced Monday its annual awards show will take place Aug. 26 at the Prudential Center – its first time in New Jersey.
MTV is offering a number of different streams on Twitter to ask fans to decide which stars they'd like to watch.
Viewers will also be able to follow backstage and go behind-the-scenes during the show's biggest moments.
The VMAs are typically held in New York, though they have also taken place in Los Angeles, Miami and Las Vegas.
Last year's show took place at New York's Radio City Music Hall.
AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
