VMA Nominations 2010

The very first Video Music Awards were hosted by MTV in 1984 to pay tribute to the artists and the creativity of the music videos made that year. Over the years it has grown to be a prestigious award and focuses on the music that younger fans, from their teens into their twenties, enjoy and support. It is known to draw millions of teenagers, and this year the recognizable astronaut on the moon will be handed over to the winners on 12 September 2010 at the Nokia Theater, which is located in Los Angeles.

Artists such as Lady Gaga have received more than one nomination for this year’s Video Music Awards.
