Although they are ahead of the pack, BEYONCE, FRANK OCEAN and KANYE WEST trail not too far behind with 3 nominations each.
CHRIS BROWN will also be in the building being nominated for two awards this year including Best Choreography.
Hopefully there won’t be a rematch between BROWN’s “Turn Up The Music,” and DRAKE’s “Take Care,” are both nominated for Best Male Video, but may the best RIHANNA lover win.
The 2012 Video Music Awards will air live from the Staples Center. Thursday, September 6th.
