  • jj

    If katy perry wins anything I will hurl! She is a terrible vocalist.

  • craig

    MTV...has just flooped this year, big time;feel like perhaps they don't like Jennifer. Huge mistake and disappointment for not nominating her.

  • Nelly

    Not only JLo.. but Selena Gomez? Taylor Swift? What happened!? :'(

  • karen

    312,372,876 views on you tube MTV without a doubt flooped the nominee list or are bias towards the new american sweetheart JLO.....

  • jay

    On theFloor is best dance song out!!!!

  • kent

    ON the floor is a song and a video that should have been on the nominee list.

  • JO


  • Pam

    Get what ya saying, but 'On the Floor both song and video are great'.

  • Lucy

    I think people are forgetting that this awards ceremony is about the Music Video's they create not about the actual song. Sometimes the song is amazing, and you look at the video and it's shit. You get what i'm saying?

  • amy

    Wooo...alot of comments..Ya'll are right though MTV has done no JUSTICE for ON THE FLOOR!!...6th most watched video of ALL TIME!!!!..... its funny how britney gets a nominee for such a song.

  • John

    On the Floor by JLO deserves an nominee for the most energetic video this year. MTV has FAILED!!!

  • lisa

    I agree...they have done no justice for not recognising how big On the Floor is.

  • lesh

    VMA has failed this year big time!!!!!!...On the Floor deserves a nominee.....'Best video of the Year/ Song'

  • sally

    I'm not a huge fan of JLO, but i must admit 'On the Floor' is a tune! Surprised is not on the list, thought it will be for video ofthe year or dance .

  • lesley

    Its very disappointing that 'On the floor is not on the list!, espercially since Britney song which is not even as popular as on the floor is nominated. To be honest shocked that I'm into you is not nominated either. This year JLO deserved to be on that list, and mtv did no justice to her.! Hope they realize or someone, news, media highlights it to them. Fans on twitter are going insane, pondering why 'On the floor ' is not on that llist!! Pure Disappointment

  • ashley

    Ney, i agree with you; i believe alot ofbe are shocked that 'On the Floor' is not nominated for anything; without a doubt its the song of the year

  • ney

    VMA nominee list this year is a shock!! disapppointing to be honest, I mean how can Rhianna not bea nominee orJLO on thefloor Video?...On the floor is the most viewed song oftheyear and went number 1 in 25 countries....

  • Fuck VMA
