VMAs Nominees 2015

(MTV)

The 2015 VMAs nominations were announced on Tuesday, hours after it was revealed Miley Cyrus will host this year’s MTV Video Music Awards ceremony. See the full list of nominees below!

Taylor Swift leads the pack with nine nods, all of which which were unveiled through Apple’s new Beats 1 digital radio station. For Video of the Year, she’ll face off against Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, Mark Ronson with Bruno Mars, and Kendrick Lamar. The nominees for the show’s final category, Best Song of Summer, will be revealed at a later date.

As Gossip Cop reported, Cyrus took to Twitter on Monday evening to reveal her hosting gig via photos. Clad in an alien costume, the pop star held up signs saying MTV wouldn’t let her perform this year… so she’d be hosting instead. Given Cyrus’ infamous VMAs history, it’s sure to be an exciting event.

The 2015 VMAs will take place on August 30, airing live on MTV. Gossip Cop will have full coverage. Check out the list of nominations below, and tell us who you’re voting for!
