Christina Aguilera is seen here at a rehearsal for MTV’s Video Music Awards program. The celebrities involved did a rehearsal which was also a sneak preview of the show that will be aired on Sunday, Sept. 7. This sneak was done on Sept. 4. Aguilera and Russell Brand shared the spotlight. Brand had the beefy role of being one of the main presenters and it is hoped that he would liven up the commentary with his jokes.
