MTV VMAs 2020 nominations list is out and one thing's for sure; women really do run the world as it was total domination at the hands of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande. Thanks to their epic collaboration Rain on Me which was a part of Gaga's Chromatica, the fierce ladies each have nine nominations. Following the duo are The Weeknd and Billie Eilish, who have six nominations each. Taylor Swift has received 5 nominations.

Speaking of BTS, the septet's lead single On from Map of the Soul: 7 secured them three nominations at the MTV VMAs 2020 but fans are still not happy with the snubs at the Top 3 awards (Video of the Year, Artist of the Year, Song of the Year) as well as the continued inclusion of Best K-Pop, which was introduced last year. When it comes to Best K-pop, BTS is up against (G)I-DLE, EXO, Monsta X, Tomorrow X Together, and Red Velvet. In the Best Pop category, BTS is up against Halsey, Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber ft. Quavo, Lady Gaga with Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift. On has also been nominated for Best Choreography and will be going toe-to-toe with CNCO & Natti Natasha's Honey Boo, DaBaby's Bop, Dua Lipa's Physical, Lady Gaga with Ariana Grande's Rain On Me and Normani's Motivation.
