Your 2022 VMA Nominations Are Here: Jack Harlow, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Nas X Lead The Pack

The 2022 MTV Video Music Awards are just per month away and Jack Harlow, Kendrick Lamar, and Lil Nas X all lead this years show in nominations, that have been announced on Tuesday (July 26).

The three rappers have racked up a complete of seven nods, with both Lil Nas X and Harlow being nominated as well as their smash duet Industry Baby in five different categories. Lamar has been nominated in Best Cinematography for not only one but also for two of his music videos: Family Ties and N95. In it, both Doja Cat and Harry Styles tie for the second-most nominations with six each. Several VMA vets Billie Eilish, Drake, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, and The Weeknd follow with highlights in five categories.

Lil Nas X and Harlow may have racked up the best amount of noms together, however they are up for serious competition for the highly coveted Video of the entire year award. Dojas Woman and Styless SINCE IT Was, two of the years most iconic visuals, may also be noted. They’ll face off against Drakes Way 2 Sexy, Sheerans Shivers, and Swifts All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylors Version).

The 2022 MTV Video Music Awards will go back to New Jerseys Prudential Center in Newark on Sunday, August 28. The ceremony previously hit the Garden State in 2019 when it had been hosted by comedian and actor Sebastian Maniscalco; last years show aired from Brooklyns Barclays Center. Scroll down for the entire set of 2022 VMA nominees, and become sure to go and vote on vma.mtv.com for the faves.
