An MTV Video Music Award (commonly abbreviated as a VMA) is an award presented by the cable channel MTV to honor the best in the music video medium. Originally conceived as an alternative to the Grammy Awards (in the video category), the annual MTV Video Music Awards ceremony has often been called the "Super Bowl for youth", an acknowledgment of the VMA ceremony's ability to draw millions of youth from teens to 20-somethings each year. By 2001, the VMA had become a coveted award. The statue given to winners is an astronaut on the moon, one of the earliest representations of MTV. The statue was conceived by Manhattan Design—also designers of the original MTV logo—based on the 1981 "Top of the Hour" animation created by Fred Seibert, produced by Alan Goodman, and produced by Buzz Potamkin at Buzzco Associates. The annual VMA ceremony occurs before the end of summer and held either in late August or mid-September, and broadcast live on MTV. The first VMA ceremony was held in 1984 at New York City's Radio City Music Hall. The ceremonies are normally held in either New York City or Los Angeles. However, the ceremonies have also been hosted in Miami and Las Vegas.

My kind of music is a game show in the United Kingdom, produced by LWT for ITV from 8 February 1998 to 29 March 2002. The show's main theme, "My kind of people", where presenter Michael Barrymore sang some of the lyrics when appearing at the very start, was based on the same song by Robert Palmer released in 1991. Three teams of two people would test their musical knowledge against their chosen opponents and rivals, where the surviving team could go on to win £13,000 in the jackpot; later it was increased to £16,000 by the third series. Danny Foster made an appearance on the show, before he was chosen as one of the five members of the short-lived reality TV-formed group Hear'Say. When Barrymore's contract with LWT ended facing a scandal in 2001, they decided not to renew it, and My kind of music came to an end. The final series of six episodes transmitted from 10 February to 29 March 2002, though popular with most ITV regions and viewers, many rejected in showing the series - due to Barrymore's situation at the time. But none of the last six episodes were broadcast in Scotland, due to no time-slot in the schedule being available as Scottish Television and Grampian Television were using their slots for local programmes.
