VMA Nominations – Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Demi Lovato, Austin Mahone, Will.i.am, Justin Bieber.

We know that there’s about 15 trillion different awards ceremonies but the VMAs are one of the most important in the whole world of music.

They stand for Video Music Awards, so it’s not just about having a cracking pop tune, it’s also about having a great video.

The nominations were announced today and the big names include Taylor Swift, Austin Mahone, Demi Lovato, Will.i.am and Justin Bieber.

The biggest shocks from the list are definitely there being zero One Direction! Maybe it’s unfair on the other pop stars because 1D’s hair immediately make their videos awesome – no matter what.
