One Direction, Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke For VMAs
And voting is now open for your 'Best Song Of The Summer'...
Making her first VMA performance, Miley will perform her Number 1 smash We Can’t Stop, which is nominated for four VMAs this year including Best Female Video, Best Pop Video, Best Editing, as well as the new Best Song Of The Summer category.
This year will also mark Robin Thicke’s VMA debut performance. He is up for four Moonmen for his rather raunchy video Blurred Lines featuring T.I. and Pharrell Williams, including Video Of The Year, Best Male Video, Best Collaboration and Best Song Of The Summer.
While they are not set to perform, the 1D boys will be returning to the VMAs this year as presenters after snagging three Moonmen last year, with the band's Liam Payne saying,
"Last year’s VMA’s were unbelievable and certainly a night that none of us will ever forget.
“We are very excited to come back this year and present an award and it was fantastic to find out that Best Song Ever has been nominated in the Best Song Of The Summer category.”
For the first time, this year’s VMAs will also feature the socially-driven Best Song Of The Summer Award powered by Windows Phone.
The inaugural nominees are Miley Cyrus’ We Can’t Stop, Daft Punk’s Get Lucky, Calvin Harris featuring Ellie Goulding’s I Need Your Love, Selena Gomez’s Come & Get It, One Direction’s Best Song Ever, and Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines.

The 2013 MTV Video Awards will be shown on MTV from 8pm on Monday August 26.
