Line-up of MMVA Performers

Published: 2004-05-27
The artists that are set to take the stage at the biggest party in Canada have been announced. Appearing and performing at the 2004 Much Music Video Awards will be talent from both sides of the Canada/USA border.

The impressive line-up features Canadian alt. heroes Billy Talent, teen queen Hilary Duff, acclaimed rapper Kanye West, and Grammy winning band Evanescence. But it doesn't stop there, oh no, not by a long shot. Finger Eleven, Hoobastank, Fefe Dobson, and Three Days Grace will also be seen strutting their stuff on national television.

However the impending performance that is on everyone's lips is one by three men that call themselves Beastie Boys. The Boys will be showcasing material from their upcoming album 'To The 5 Boroughs', and will be sure to play their current single 'Ch-Check It Out'. It shall forever remain a mystery how Much Music roped that group in to perform at their annual awards. It's a little like getting Brad Pitt to guest on Degrassi; sort of a modern day miracle.

In addition to checking out the performances of the nine artists lined-up for the awards, Canada will be watching to see if Sam Roberts can recreate the spectacular feat that he accomplished at the Junos, stealing the title of 'Most Awarded Canadian' (ok, so I just made that up). He has a good start, leading the pack of MMVA nominees with 7 nods for 'Hard Road' and 1 for 'Where Have All The Good People Gone', adding up to a grand total of 8 nominations.

The 2004 Much Music Video Awards will air live Sunday, June 10th at 9pm ET (and then probably 80 more times throughout the week).
