If you've ever wanted to see Austin Mahone prep for a huge show, here's your chance! The Texas-born boy wonder released his 'Road to the VMAs' clip, detailing his preparation for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards preshow.

The adorable, somewhat scripted clip opens with Mahone, pretending to look pensively out of a window. (Come on, brah, you're not fooling us!) Soon we see him rehearsing. The boy dances up a storm and sings with a heavy echo in the sparse space ... then it's back to more pensive staring.

Mahone stands in Brooklyn outside of the Barclays Center, staring into space. "Man, this is crazy," he says in a voiceover. "I never thought in a million years that I'd be nominated for a VMA. This is like, a huge accomplishment and a great honor." Indeed!

We see footage of Mahone 48 hours before the VMAs, doing press, high fiving Mahomies and later rehearsing with dancers instead of alone.

It gets scary a day before the show, where Mahone gets sick and coughs a lot, with his voice weakening. But, as you all watched on the big night, it all turned out fine!
