Justin Timberlake, Beyonce Top VMA Nominations

by at . Comments

Justin Timberlake and Beyoncé Knowles scored seven nominations each for this year's MTV Video Music Awards, it was announced on MTV's Total Request Live Tuesday.

Kanye West and Rihanna, meanwhile, were just shy of the top spots with five nominations each, while newcomer Amy Winehouse received three.

The latest hit for Justin Timberlake, "What Goes Around ... Comes Around," will face off with Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable," West's "Stronger," Rihanna's "Umbrella," Winehouse's "Rehab" and electro duo Justice's "D.A.N.C.E." for the video of year honors.

Kanye West and Rihanna (and sporting a cane) were on TRL Tuesday when the nominations were announced â€" as were fellow scheduled performers Chris Brown, Timbaland and Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz.

MTV also announced that the VMAs will be a one-night stand this year, airing live from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas September 9.

The two-hour show will include eight categories - fan favorites as well as four new slots: Male/female artist of the year, most earthshattering collaboration; monster single of the year and quadruple threat award. No idea what that means, but who cares.

Not nominated for some reason? The amazing Britney Spears. Oh, maybe it's because she hasn't put out in album in like three or four years.
