Following by singer Shawn Mendes with five nominations, four nominations for Ed Sheeran and Kendrick Lamar. All three singers will compete for the Best Artist Award together with Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande. Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar will compete with each other for the Best Video category, namely “What You Made Me Do” and “HUMBLE”. To get the cup in the “Best Look” category, Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Dua Lipa and Rita Ora will “face” each other. An open challenge among singers is also in the category of Best Song, a challenge that will be played between Clean Band, Sean Paul & Anne-Marie (Rockabye), DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller (Wild Thoughts), Ed Sheeran (Shape of You), Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber (Despacito remix) and Shawn Mendes (There’s Nothing Holdin’Me Back).
