It’s one of the biggest (and craziest!) nights in music — the MTV Video Music Awards — and with Miley Cyrus as the host, literally anything could happen. We’re beyond excited, and to get us even more amped up, we turned to Instagram to see how the celebs are gearing up for one of the hottest awards show of the year. From wardrobe fittings to private plane selfies, these star snapshots will make you feel like you’re part of the action.
