MTV VMA 2022: Who are the artists nominated for the awards?


For this 38th edition of the MTV Video Music Awardsthere will be artists and great shows that we have not seen live, where not only Pop will be included, but more musical genres such as R&B, Hip-Hop, Rock and K-pop.

As we know, the day of the awards ceremony is getting closer and closer, and we are looking forward to seeing this weekend the outfits of the stars and the presentations they have prepared for everyone.

The list of nominees is led by Jack Harlow, Kendrick Lamar and Lil Nas X, since they have seven nominations each. Next, Doja Cat and Harry Styles with six nominations and finally Billie Eilish, Drake, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, and The Weeknd, with five nominations. No doubt some of them will be winners of at least one category!
