This Sunday, the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards descend on New York City with a massive celebration at the legendary Radio City Music Hall. The red carpet coverage kicks off at 8pm, with a train of stars arriving, from Moonman nominees to high-profile presenters. With "Twilight" star Ashley Greene filling the role of celebrity fashion reporter this year, you can probably expect her to chat with her pals Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, who will be on hand to present a new trailer for "New Moon" during the show. It's not like that crew see each other all the time or anything.
As you might imagine, Radio City Music Hall is kind of a big deal in NYC. The venue's history and beauty attracts a lot of high-profile parties, even movie premieres. So to get you excited for this Sunday's red carpet show, we've put together a collection of photos from past Radio City gatherings, featuring stars from the likes of "Sex & the City," "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" and more.
