2005/08/26 | 212 views | Permalink | Source

Local pop singer Rain was invited as a VIP guest to one of America's biggest music festivals of the year, the MTV Video Music Awards 2005, to be held in Miami tomorrow.

The 23-year-old singer is the only Asian singer who received an invitation to the festival.

Hosted by hip-hop artist Diddy, the event will be attended by Green Day, Gwen Stefani, Missy Elliott, U2, and Coldplay and The Killers. To incorporate the host's party style, the event will use a white carpet instead of a red carpet for artists to walk on in the ceremony.

Green Day leads all artists with eight nominations for their videos "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and "American Idiot". Elliott has six for her clip "Lose Control", with Gwen Stefani and U2 holding five each.

The show will be aired here by MYV Korea at 6 p.m. on Sept. 24, but beforehand, the program introducing Rain's participation in the festival will show at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 20.
