It’s that annual time of year where MTV honours the best in music videos and everyone vies for a silver moonman.
MTV released the nominations for the MTV Video Music Awards and they pretty much summarize summer 2014 so far. MTV showed that they are still hip by releasing the nominations via Snapchat.
Beyonce proves she is the Queen with eight nominations including Video of the Year and Best Collaboration for Drunk in Love. Beyonce has three songs off her self-titled visual album nominated for moonmen this year. Eight for you Beyonce, you go Beyonce!
Newcomer Iggy Azalea is leaving her mark on MTV history. The Australian rapper is nominated for seven awards for her Clueless inspired video for Fancy, and her collaboration with Ariana Grande. She is even nominated twice for Best Female Video and Best Pop Video. The odds are definitely in I-G-G-Y’s favour.
Other nominees include Eminem with seven, Pharrell with seven, Arianda Grande with three, Miley Cyrus with two. MMVA performer and Canadian Kiesza infectious hit Hideaway is nominated for Best Choreography. You can check out the full list of nominees here.
Usher, Ariana Grande, and 5 Seconds of Summer, are the only artists scheduled to perform so far, but you know the VMAs showcase the best of summer music so expect to see a lot of crazy performers added. The 2014 MTV VMAs take place August 24 in Inglewood, California, but you can watch it here on Much and MTV.Tweet
