Mtv vma moon man

The nominations for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards have just been released and the odds are favoring Rihanna and Drake, who have the most nominations of any artist thanks to their duet "Take Care", which has been nominated for three awards.

DJs of the world can rejoice as their odds of winning a "moon man" have increased from being non-existent. The past year has seen the electronic genre hit the mainstream with full force, from middle school hallways to music festivals, so the VMA's voting academy has introduced a new category: Best Electronic Dance Music Video.

Voting will end on Aug. 24 at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT, although the voting for Best New Artist will remain open throughout the event, which will be aired on MTV on September 9th. We have every single nominated video below, so check 'em out and follow the links to make your vote!
