This summer fans judged eight different regional competitions on OurStage to help MTV select the nominees for local VMAs for Best Breakout Artist! The contest gave several talented emerging artists the chance to open for big name acts such as All Time Low and White Tie Affair while being judged by influential industry leaders. The New York City competitors battled it out in front of top MTV VMA talent at a Time Warner Cable MTV VMA weekend pre-party. During the live VMAs the winners were broadcasted in their regional markets and announced as the official VMA Best Breakout winners of their city! Congratulations to all the 2009 local VMA Best Breakout winners from OurStage and thanks to all the fans who voted in one of our most successful contests to date!
