Beyoncé & Lady Gaga Lead MTV VMA Nominees

2009 MTV Video Music Awards

The divas will face off at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Beyoncé and Lady Gaga dominate with nine nominations apiece at the 26th annual show.

“I’m excited and honored to be tied for most nominated for the VMAs,” Beyoncé told MTV News. “I’ve been blessed this year to have ‘Single Ladies’ become a video people really connected with and responded to. I’ve spent so much time watching all the great versions people created all around the world. It’s beautiful to feel you touch people and bring a song to life with a video.”

Britney Spears follows her peers with seven nominations, while Kanye West, Eminem, Green Day, and Coldplay each received four nods.

Vying for the Moonman in the category of Video of the Year are Beyoncé (“Single Ladies [Put a Ring on It]”), Lady Gaga (“Poker Face”), Britney Spears (“Womanizer”), Eminem (“We Made You”), and Kanye West (“Love Lockdown”).

Drake (“Best I Ever Had”) will go up against Lady Gaga (“Paparazzi”), 3OH!3 (“Don’t Trust Me”), Kid Cudi (“Day ‘N’ Nite”), and Asher Roth (“I Love College”) in the Best New Artist category.

Hip-hop and R&B rule the Best Male Video category with Eminem (“We Made You”), Ne-Yo (“Miss Independent”), Kanye West (“Love Lockdown”), T.I. and Rihanna (“Live Your Life”), and Jay-Z (“D.O.A.”).

Best Female Video nominees are Lady Gaga (“Poker Face”), Beyoncé (“Single Ladies [Put a Ring on It]”), Katy Perry (“Hot N Cold”), Kelly Clarkson (“My Life Would Suck Without You”), Taylor Swift (“You Belong With Me”), and Pink (“So What”).

Best Hip-Hop Video includes some fresh and familiar faces. Asher Roth (“I Love College”) will compete with Eminem (“We Made You”), Flo Rida (“Right Round”), Jay-Z (“D.O.A.”), and Kanye West (“Love Lockdown”).

    What are the VMAs about?? Really just about the VIDEOS, or about the songs, too?
    Cuz if it’s just about the videos, then there are better vids than those that are nominated. The nominated vids are all so popular, so it must have something to do with the music, right?

    Bout time Ciara gets another nomination, but its always for the same award, they might as well give it to her cuz she deserves it more

    Lady G should win all the categories she’s nominated for! I do love Beyoncé but in comparison to videos like Paparazzi, LoveGame and Poker Face Lady G owned this year!

    GOOOOOOOOO GAGA! POKER FACEEEEEEEEE!

    I don’t understand why is she nominated in the best new artist category by Paparazzi, she would’ve easily won a no-contest with Just Dance, Poker Face or even LoveGame.

    @ Sassy- This is 4 videos though, the Grammys are all about the Vocals.

    u know whats crazy a lot of artists arent getting the promotion on mtv like that because theres no music video countdown like TRL anymore. i think that was a horrible move for mtv. They need a new music video countdown show asap!

  19. sassy

    oops. sorry, you are correct Nick. I do like Kelly’s video though. It may not be as flashy, but I thought it was cute and fun to watch. Great rockin’ song.

    im glad my girl BRITNEY got her nominations in there. Womanizer was an AWESOME video. Beyonce is doing well also. that’s great! Gaga? she’s good, probably will win best new artist, but not video of the year compared to single ladies, or womanizer, nor do i think she deserves to win against Juggernauts like Brit-Brit and Beyonce. i hope they all perform.

    Cool, but these awards better be worth my time this year. The Movie Awards always have better quality and it’s sad. MTV is losing its grip on the music industry.

    Very happy for Lady Gaga and Beyonce. Lets hope that this year’s show will be good. But what I don’t get is why Russell Brand gets to present it for a second year….HE WAS RUBBISH!!I really think they should have chosen someone else.
