Who Should Win Video of the Year at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards? – Readers Poll
The 2013 MTV Video Music Award nominees have been announced, and it's going to be a tough race towards that 2013 Video of the Year moon man.
For some pre-show hype, we want all of you pop fans to weigh in on which nominee you think most deserves the Video of the Year VMA this year. Justin Timberlake, Macklemore, Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke and Taylor Swift are all in the running, so this isn't going to be an easy decision!
Justin Timberlake is in the running with his emotional 'Mirrors' clip, which finds the crooner pondering a lifetime of love while surrounded by his own reflection. Then there's Macklemore, who is poppin' tags, sippin' on slurpies, and showing off his best bargain bin furs in his 'Thrift Shop' clip featuring collabo partners Ryan Lewis and Wanz.
Bruno Mars is nominated for his live, retro 'Locked Out of Heaven' video, while Thicke is competing with his sexy 'Blurred Lines' video filled with scantily clad models. Finally, we've got Taylor Swift, who is up for the moon man with 'I Knew You Were Trouble,' which tells the story of a whirlwind romance crashing and burning.
Check out all of the nominated videos below! You can vote in our poll once per hour until Sunday, August 25, at 7:59PM ET, right before the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards air.
FYI, this is the VMAs 30th anniversary, and the celebratory event will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
