And the MTV Video Music Awards 2010 nominees are?
Sunday night could be the night of Lady Gaga, because the 24-year-old has 13 nominations at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. A record in the history of the music awards. Also, rapper Eminem sits well in the pools, and he is one of the favorite nominees with eight nominations. According to the announcement, he will inaugurate the show, which also expects appearances from other stars such as Kanye West, Mary J Blige. Lady Gaga is nominated, among others, in the categories for pop video, video of the year and best video of an artist, while Eminem with «Not Afraid» could get the award for best video of the year and best hip-hop Video.
Among the Best new talents nominated are Justin Bieber, Kesha, Jason Derulo, Nicki Minaj, and the group Broken Bells. And in the category of best dance video is also included along with reggaeton star Pitbull, Enrique Iglesias. Their single «I Like It» will face «Bad Romance» by Lady Gaga. It is the twenty-seventh time that these awards are given at a ceremony, and on this occasion, it will be moderated by comic Chelsea Handler.
Last year, the R & B diva Beyoncé took the video of the year award with her song «Single Ladies», while Janet Jackson paid an emotional tribute to her brother Michael Jackson, who died a few months earlier. The story of the night, which made first pages, had the rapper Kanye West as leading man, when he blurted out to Taylor Swift that Beyonce deserved, more than her, the prize for best female video, which had been given to the country singer. When Beyoncé finally won the prize for best video of the year, she called on stage Taylor Swift and she gave her the word.
This year we hope it will be an interesting night too, and with a list of nominees of this caliber the show has to be amazing.
Among the artists who are going to perform live are Kanye West, Drake, BoB, Justin Bieber, Florence and the Machine, Eminem, Usher and Linkin Park.
Moreover, the characters who are going to give some of the awards are Cher, Selena Gomez, Emma Stone, Kesha, Miranda Cosgrove, Ashley Greene, Penn Badgley, Trey Songz, Ne-Yo and Nicki Minaj.
