Live from Inglewood!

After visiting New York last year, the MTV Video Music Awards announced Wednesday that the show is returning to the West Coast this summer to become the first major awards ceremony broadcast from the storied Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

For decades, the "Fabulous Forum," as it was known, hosted some of the world's biggest musical talents, from Bob Dylan to the Rolling Stones. But in recent years, the arena and its working-class neighborhood near the LA airport fell on hard times as newer, hipper venues gained favor.

Then, after a $100 million makeover, the Forum reopened in January as the largest indoor entertainment venue in the country. It has already hosted such acts as the Eagles and Justin Timberlake.

The 2014 VMAs will air Sunday, Aug. 24.
