Top 10 2011 MTV VMA Nominees

August 25th, 2011 by Lan Nguyen

Break out your pumped up kicks and get up to speed because the 2011 MTV VMAs are coming this Sunday, August 28th. While dishing out moon men for over 20 years, the VMAs have become the source of the most memorable pop culture moments like Britney’s come-back kiss with Madonna and Christina, Kanye West’s interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech, and most recently Lady Gaga’s meat dress. While the purpose of the VMAs is to honor the creativity of music videos, the show is really about bestowing additional bragging rights upon the artists who run the musical entertainment world. Since the winners are determined by voting on MTV’s website and social media has been an important platform for galvanizing fans, we thought we’d put together a list of most influential VMA nominees.

And the most influential VMA nominee is Justin Bieber (big surprise)! Chris Brown is dancing at spot #2 while Lady Gaga is on the edge of glory at #3. Check out the rest of the list here.
