Pop star Justin Bieber and rapper Megan Thee Stallion scored the most nominations for this year’s MTV Video Song Awards, organizers said on Wednesday in advance of next month’s ceremony as a way to welcome lower back lovers as part of the audience.
The Canadian singer Bieber received seven nods, including artist of the year, nice pop tune for “Peaches,” and video of the 12 months for “Popstar,” his collaboration with DJ Khaled and Drake.
He’s going to compete for artist of the year with Megan Thee Stallion, who landed six nominations, including one for “WAP,” the racy video with rapper Cardi B.
The other contenders for the 12 months’ best artist are Ariana Grande, Doja Cat, newcomer Olivia Rodrigo, and Taylor Swift.
The 12-month nominees consist of Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me extra,” Ed Sheeran‘s “awful habits,” Lil Nas X’s “Montero (name Me with the aid of your call)” and The Weeknd’s “Shop Your Tears.”
Billie Eilish, BTS, Doja Cat, Drake, Given, Lil Nas X, and first-time nominee Rodrigo earned five nominations each.
Last year, the VMAs were filmed without a live audience and with most of the performances recorded in advance due to fitness pointers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This month’s rite will take place on Sept. 12 at the Barclays Center in New York. Winners are selected with the aid of lovers who vote online.
