It's that time of year again and the nominees for the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards were announced this morning via the Beats 1 “Chart” on Apple Music.  AllHipHop reports Ms. Taylor Swift leads all artists with nine nominations.  Beyonce isn't to for behind with five nods, followed by Kendrick Lamar with four including Video of the Year and Best Hip-Hop Video.

Other Moonman nominees include Nicki Minaj with three nods, including Best Female Video, while Wiz Khalifa looks for a win from the Fast & Furious track “See You Again.” Big Sean, Wale, A$AP Rocky also got single nods, and new comer Fetty Wap appears in the Artist to Watch category.  You can help him win, by voting here.

The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards will be hosted by Miley Cyrus, so this should be pretty interested.  The show will air on Sunday, Aug. 30th at 8:00 p.m CT from the Microsoft Theater, formerly known as the Nokia Theater in L.A.
