In the teaser, titled “Dragonstone” (see here) rising music accompanies a milky-white smoke that quickly turns all it covers to ice. The ice, creeping across a wooden surface that fans of the show will recognize as the carved wooden map of Westeros, meets flames spreading across the map’s surface coming from the other direction. The elements meet over Daenerys Targaryen’s guide, and then the title for the series rises, in this under the 40-second clip.
One expects a VMAs host to be entertaining and even outrageous. With Katy Perry at the helm for this year’s show, home viewers as well as the famous in-house audience members had to expect wild (and many) wardrobe choices from the hostess. And Katy Perry did not disappoint with her haute couture array, as she surely paid homage to the medium the VMAs were built on and are broadcast from.
