The nominees are in! There’s still a little over a month left until the VMAs. The anticipation for the telecasted event is gaining momentum.
Let’s be real, of the 15 categories created for the VMAs, most people are raving about Video of the Year, Artist of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Hip-Hop, and Best Collaboration. Kendrick Lamar has set the bar with 8 nominations of the 15 categories present. Both The Weeknd and Katy Perry come in after him with five (5) nominations each. Video of the Year’s nominees are Kendrick Lamar’s (Humble), Bruno Mars (24K Magic), Alessia Cara (Scar to Your Beautiful), DJ Khaled feat. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller (Wild Thoughts), and The Weeknd (Reminder). This is probably one of the toughest pools to choose from. As biased as it may be, I do hope New Best Artist goes to Young M.A. She could bring one back home for NY. See the full list here: http://www.mtv.com/news/3027132/2017-vma-nominations/
Last week MTV released the first promotional video for the event. In the promotion, it gave various nods to the “kodak moments” in VMA history. Today they released the nominees for the 15 respective categories. Now that the nominees are out, I wonder what performances we’ll be getting this year. Clear your schedules Sunday August 27th, because I’m sure there will be moments you won’t want to miss.
