Do you think Andre 3000 will perform "Hey Ya" at that fancy GW Bush fundraiser he's attending?

to be fair, anonymous, as MTV awards go, they've actually got some pretty good tunes in there - No Doubt's cover was better than the original, Beyonce and Franz were fine...

but I'm no longer clear if the award is for the song or the video...?
