Today, PopCrush is bringing you our nominees for the 2011 Video of the Year. We are counting on our readers to vote for their favorite video of the year, whether this clip had funny elements that made you laugh or had a lasting effect thanks to compelling and beautiful visuals.

First off on our countdown are fun-loving party rockers LMFAO and their 'Party Rock Anthem' clip, which started a catch phrase and a dance craze known as the "shuffle." Next up is Rihanna's emotional and lovestruck clip for 'We Found Love,' followed by the hilarious star-studded 'Make Some Noise' video from the Beastie Boys.

Katy Perry also makes an appearance with her goofy, nerd-gone-wild vid for 'Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.).' Closing out our list of nominees are Bruno Mars and his posse of monkeys, who dance around in unison in 'The Lazy Song' video, and Lady Gaga, who captivated little Monsters everywhere with her awe-inspiring and stunning visual for 'Born This Way.'

You have until Jan. 1, 2011 at 11:59PM EST to vote for your favorite video. We will announce the winners the following day.
