MTV VMA nominations announced – 1D, Bieber, The Wanted & Rihanna!


The nominations for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards have been announced, and it looks like it’s going to be Rihanna’s year! The Bajan superstar is nominated for five moonman gongs.

While Justin Bieber has been pitted against mentor Usher for the Best Male award, The Wanted and One Direction will be fighting it out in the Best New Artist category – if either boyband win, it’ll top off a great year for British pop in America.

The awards take place on September 6 in LA and One Direction have already confirmed that they will be performing on the night!

Here’s a summary of nominations for the top awards:
