Full list of 2022 MTV VMAs nominations




American cable channel MTV has unveiled the highly-anticipated nominations for the 2022 Video Music Awards (VMAs) and, according to the channel, the list features artists whose cultural impact and work over the past year have transformed the music industry and created global conversations. 

The list of VMAs nominees shows hip hop’s continued dominance as Jack Harlow, Kendrick Lamar and Lil Nas X lead this year’s nominations with seven each and they are closely followed by Doja Cat and Harry Styles with six each. 

Billie Eilish, Drake, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd all come in next with five nominations each.

Considering the fact that the collaboration Industry Baby premiered live on the 2021 VMAs stage, it comes as no surprise that the song and the accompanying visuals are what scored both Jack Harlow and Lil Nas X multiple nominations. 

Kendrick Lamar – on the other hand – is nominated for the first time since 2018. 

According to MTV, Madonna (who reigns as the most awarded artist in MTV history with 20 wins) becomes the only artist to be nominated in each of the VMAs five decades (1980s-2020s) with her 69th nomination for Madame X.” 

Another milestone for this year’s awards includes the fact that there are 26 first-time nominees, among them; Baby Keem, MTV Push artist Gayle, Kacey Musgraves and Måneskin, all receiving multiple nods. 

They’re nominated alongside Anitta, Becky G, Dove Cameron, Karol G, ITZY, JID, Muni Long, Tems, Wet Leg and more.

When will the 2022 VMAs air?

The 2022 VMAs will return to celebrate the biggest names in music on Sunday, 28 August at 8pm ET/PT. 

Organisers promise show-stopping surprises, epic performances and a fan-filled audience live from New Jersey’s famed Prudential Center and airing across MTV’s global footprint of linear and digital platforms in over 170 countries, reaching 422 million households in nearly 30 different languages. 

“For the third consecutive year, the VMAs will simulcast on The CW Network, making the show available to an expanded broadcast audience, in addition to BET, BET Her, CMT, Comedy Central, Logo, MTV2, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network, Pop, TVLand and VH1,” said MTV.
