Sunday, August 24th marks the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, and this year, Queen Bey is leading the nominations. With her eponymous fifth album freshly dropped in December of last year, the “Drunk In Love” crooner made a music video for each track off the surprise album, so it’s no surprise that she’s racked up a total of 8 nominations this year. Iggy Azalea and Eminem are both tied behind Bey with 7 nods each.
On the performance side, Usher will be returning to the VMAs stage to promote his upcoming LP. Ariana Grande will also be singing her heart out at the show, set to debut her single “Break Free” with Zedd. Australian heartthrobs 5 Seconds Of Summer will make their VMAs debut this year, with their self-titled LP just released.
Fans can head over to MTV.com to cast their vote for Best Video, Best Hip-Hop Video, Best Female Video, and Best Male Video.
