Las Vegas will become the center of the entertainment world this weekend as the MTV Music Awards take over the Palms Casino Resort.

"It's going to be crazy," rapper Eve told PEOPLE last week.

Unlike previous shows where everything took place in one location, Sin City's version of the show will broadcast from several sites in the Palms, including The Pearl and a few suites in the hotel's Fantasy Tower.
