Indeed, Brooks recently completed a two-week tour of the United Kingdom and Europe. Though Bitch had a four-week run at the top of Billboard Magazine's "Hot 100" chart, Brooks won't sing it Tuesday. While it became an MTV staple, she suspects the title might make network executives hesitant to broadcast it. Brooks is excited to be on the award-show track, but she said, "I forgot to think about that stuff. When you're making a record, you're thinking more about getting to tour and what your bus will look like.

Slated to perform on the show are Aerosmith, Garth Brooks, God's Property (featuring gospel star Kirk Franklin), Jamiroquai, LeAnn Rimes, Spice Girls and Third Eye Blind. Scheduled presenters include Aqua, Backstreet Boys, Toni Braxton, Meredith Brooks, Busta Rhymes, Deana Carter, Kenny G, Kathy Griffin, Hanson, Dru Hill, No Doubt, Puff Daddy, Robyn, Sublime, Usher and songwriter Diane Warren. A nominee for Best New Artist (Video) Clip in PopRock, singer-guitarist Brooks made a big splash with her summer hit Bitch, from her platinum-selling debut album Blurring the Edges.
