This year’s Video Music Awards will be hosted by Miley Cyrus so we should expect plenty of inappropriate behavior, lots of cursing, cats in bathing suits and plenty of tongue wagging. Not to mention she’s been given “free reign” by VMA producers, which means we should all be very afraid.

See.

Miley won’t be hitting the stage to sing any of her hits, but this year’s list of performers include: The Weeknd, Pharrell, Justin Bieber, Tori Kelly, A$AP Rocky, Demi Lovato and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Hopefully they add some of our favorite entertainers onto the list between now and Sunday.

Who’s Nominated?

Kanye West is being honored with the VMAs highest honor. He will be presented the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award for his musical excellence.

Who We Want To Win

Video Of The Year

As much as we rocked out to Beyonce’s 7/11 , we can’t deny the Taylor Swift’s epic Bad Blood video. Featuring appearances by everyone one from Empire cutie Serayah McNeil to Cindy Crawford, the over-the-top visuals are just what the music video genre ordered. Kendrick also adds his Compton swag to the infectious song, making it one good ass time.

Best Female Video

Boy this is a tough one. Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” clip became an iconic moment in hip-hop while Beyonce’s 7/11 kept us dancing and rolling imaginary dice in the club. Sigh. We’re going to go with Nicki on this one. Only because we’re hoping for another tea-sipping moment. The way Nicki and Taylor beefed on Twitter, there’s about to be some massive shade thrown from either one of the ladies.

Best Hip-Hop Video

Kendrick. All day.

Best Pop Video

Beyonce.

Artist To Watch

Two words: Trap queen.
