Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande have dominated the MTV Video Music Award nominations with nine nods each.

The 34-year-old singer and the ‘7 Rings’ hitmaker are the most nominated artists at this year’s VMAs, as they have each bagged nine nominations, including seven joint nods for their collaborative track, ’Rain On Me’, which is up for Video of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Collaboration, Best Pop, Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, and Best Choreography.

Gaga is also nominated for Artist of the Year, and Best Quarantine Performance, whilst Ariana Grande will battle it out with herself in the Best Collaboration category, and has a ninth nod in the Best Music Video From Home shortlist.

Ariana has no nominations for any solo awards, as her two nods which aren’t with Gaga are for her Justin Bieber quarantine-themed collaboration, ‘Stick with U’.

Elsewhere, Billie Eilish and The Weeknd each scored six nominations each, including a nod each in the coveted Video of the Year category.

South Korean boy band BTS earned three nominations in the Best Pop, Best K-Pop, and Best Choreography categories, all for their hit single ‘ON’.

Other Video of the Year nominees include Eminem ft. Juice WRLD, Future ft. Drake, and Taylor Swift, whilst the Artist of the Year category also features DaBaby, Justin Bieber, Megan Thee Stallion, The Weeknd, and Post Malone.

The 2020 MTV VMAs are set to take place on August 30, and fans can vote across the 15 categories from now until August 23.
