BEYONCE & TIMBERLAKE LEAD MTV NODS

 

Justin Timberlake and Beyoncé lead the pack of nominees for the 24th annual VMAs, each with seven nods, followed closely by Kanye West and Rihanna with five and newcomer Amy Winehouse with three.

 

Timberlake’s "What Goes Around ... Comes Around" and Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" will face off in the Video of the Year category, alongside West's "Stronger," Rihanna's "Umbrella" and Winehouse's "Rehab."

 

Timberlake is up for awards in three new categories: male artist of the year, most Earth-shattering collaboration (with Timbaland on "SexyBack") and quadruple threat of the year for his achievements in acting, business and fashion. In addition, "What Goes Around" earned nominations for best director and best editing.

Beyonce's nominations also include Earth-shattering collaboration (with Shakira on "Beautiful Liar"), quadruple threat and female artist of the year. The "Beautiful Liar" video snared three nods in professional categories, including best director.

Winehouse will vie for best new artist against Carrie Underwood, Gym Class Heroes, Allen and Swedish indie rock act Peter Bjorn and John. That award will be chosen by fan voting on VMA.MTV.com.

In another new category, monster single, the nominees include Lil Mama's "Lip Gloss," T-Pain's "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')" and Plain White T's' recent Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit, "Hey There Delilah."

 

The awards will take place at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas on September 9.

 

Timberlake, West, Rihanna and Winehouse will perform at the event.  Timbaland will be serving as the evening's musical maestro.

 

Other big-name nominees include Akon (for Male Artist and Earthshattering Collaboration), Fall Out Boy (Best Group and Monster Single of the Year), T.I., Robin Thicke and Fergie.
