Update: Guess what kiddos? We’ve decided to liveblog the event as it happens. Should you decide that you wish to stay up till around 1:00am (UK’ers) to check in with us, we will update you as the shit goes down! So, if Jack Black shows up in his undies shooting sparks from his groin again, or should Cliffy B decide to show and announce that Gears is being ported to Wii – we will let you know the second it happens. Not that it will, just sayin’.

Original: Spike TV will broadcast the 2009 Video Game Awards tonight at 8:00pm EST.

To get you pumped for it, you can watch a live stream of the rehearsals going on at the moment, which promised to give you a taste of some of the world premieres expected tonight.

Earlier, Geoff Keighley tweeted that during the “first five minutes” of the show, one of the “biggest surprise premieres in VGA history” will take place.

Oh, Geoff. You big tease. Stop it already. You’re making us blush.

Guess we’ll have to watch it now.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.

  • Spike VGAs renamed VGX, dated for December

    The Spike Video Game Awards, where we’re likely to find out more details on much of the new PlayStation 4 content revealed today, have been slapped with a new name and a release date.

  • VGAs 2012: a new hope (despite the Newell gaffe)

    Two steps forward, one step back. Last night’s VGAs showed reason to hope for a respectable awards event in the years to come. They might want to leave Garry out of it next time, though. Catherine Cai reports from LA.
