Fresh from announcing that Miley Cyrus will host this year’s ceremony, MTV have announced the 2015 Video Music Awards - or as everyone actually refers to them, the MTV VMAs - nominations.

A whole host of music’s biggest stars are fighting it out for the moonman statuettes, and Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and Beyoncé are all in the lead with six, nine and five nominations each.

The trio will go head-to-head(-to-head) for the highly-coveted Video Of The Year award, and we can only imagine how Kanye West will react if Taylor manages to pip Bey to the post again.

Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars have also received a nod in that category, for the quite frankly sensational ‘Uptown Funk- funk video, and Kendrick Lamar is also on the shortlist.

Elsewhere, plenty of British stars are in the running for accolades, including Ellie Goulding, Florence + The Machine and Arctic Monkeys.

The MTV VMAs will take place in LA on 30 August.
