Van Toffler‘s MTV have announced they are to announce the nominees for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards via the social networking video sharing formats Instagram and Vine today.

Want the full story?

We’ve got you covered below…


Tomorrow morning (8am E.T) the network will unveil a series of mini videos similar to the clip above to announce all of this year’s nominations, enlisting animation creator Khoa Pan to help them launch the unique venture, and expand their reach on social media.

Elijah Blake:

Boasting 1.37 million followers on Instagram and 117,000 pals on ‘Vine’, the network will air this year’s show live from NYC’s Barclay’s Center on August  25th, and- if reports are to believed- may welcome the likes of Rihanna & R&B Royal Ciara to the event.

Ladies, who have both  have enjoyed respective wins on the Billboard Hot 100 and video streaming front since last year’s star studded show at Anschutz‘ ‘Staples Center’.

    Thats right Grape Juice better promote the heck out of Ciara, get that 33k up to 37k. LOL But c’mon guys seriously if Ciara didn’t get nominated at the BET awards what makes y’all think she’s gonna get nominated let alone win anything at the MTV awards. -____- Besides MTV stand for the pop girls Rihanna, Beyonce, Gaga, Katy there just no room on the roster for Ci yet

    I remember the one time Cedric was supposed to “perform” at the VMAs it was just a Chevrolet promo spot where she was singing Nelly Furtado’s part on Hot N Fun, mess.
    With that being said MTV needs to stop trying too hard before they lose in the ratings to the BET Awards like last year.

    Citranny and The VMAs doesn’t go togather. Especially in this day and age! MTV ususally stay away from flops and Citranny is an R&B flop, so sorry Non Factor Squad. #POOR DAT

    Video of the Year nominees (in my opinion)

    Britney feat Will.I.Am – Scream and Shout
    Rihanna – Diamonds
    Justin Timberlake – Mirrors
    P!nk – Just Give Me a Reason
    Bruno Mars – Locked Out of Heaven

    Rihanna won’t win since she did last year, so they will give it to someone else. But it doesn’t matter anyway, she already has 2.

        Well, if it was based on my personal taste, I would definitely chose other videos. I chose those because they are pretty successful as singles and have many views.

        They always give the main award to a big star like Britney, Beyonce, Katy, GaGa, Rihanna.

        Umbrella, Piece of Me, Single Ladies, Bad Romance, Firework, We Found Love are winners for last 6 years. We will see if ladies will dominate this year again.

        Honestly I hope they won’t give it to someone like Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez, that would be :/

    dragging ciara is going to do what for you personally?

    she’s a flop living in a million dollar home, driving nice cars

    and getting paid more than an hour than you people make in a year..

    and she has been the muse for fashion house givenchy for years…..she gets paid to rock their clothes

    but it’s all good..I enjoy watching a bunch of morons making a fool of themselves..

    continue…

    dragging ciara, and anybody else who’s not a big album seller, is going to do what?

    you morons do know that the more s*** you talk about ciara, the more promotions she gets….

    you guys promote the broad more than her own record company..her name is always on every single post..even post that aint got s*** to do with her…

    the more you guys promote her the more money she makes

    @RATEDXXX better preach!!!!! And I see its the h** that seems to be hating on Ciara and waiting to “drag” her. says A LOT about the kind of people that stan for Trannyonce.

    Y’all can “drag” Ciara till you turn purple, but she will still be living in her mansion, driving nice cars (not just one), traveling the world, making money and living her life. You on the other hand will stay on your computer for the rest of your life sucking up to Trannyonce who doesn’t even know you exist and won’t give you a single cent of her millions. You will stay behind your computer screen “dragging” artists that are making money while you sit behind you screen.

    WHILE YOU ARE BUSY “DRAGGING” CIARA, SHE BE RUNNING TO THE BANK TO CASH HER CHEQUE. OOOOOOOOPT

    So yes, as @RATEDXXX has said, continue “dragging” Ciara
