Beyoncé
This year's MTV Video Music Awards ceremony on August 24 will belong to Beyoncé. Not only is the singer nominated for eight trophies, but it also has been announced that she will perform at the show and be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, honoring an artist's complete body of work. In previous years, this award has been given to Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Madonna, and, of course, the King of Pop.

Meanwhile, Bey also is on the ballot for Video of the Year for "Drunk in Love," not to mention the categories of Best Female, Best Collaboration, Best Video With a Social Message, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Choreography and Best Direction. As a solo artist, Beyoncé has taken home 11 VMA trophies, including Video of the Year for "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" in 2009 and Best Female for "Crazy in Love" in 2007.

Other artists with multiple nominations this year include Eminem and Iggy Azalea, who have seven nods each, as well as Jay Z, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande, Lorde, Sam Smith, Zedd, Avicii, Pitbull, Jason Derulo and Hayley Williams. The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards will be handed out at the Forum in Inglewood, CA, on August 24, with a show that will include performances from Usher, Ariana Grande, 5 Seconds of Summer, and more still to be announced.
