NEW YORK, NY. (Top40 Charts/ MTV) - And the nominations continue...Last week on FNMTV viewers found out the nominees for "Best Male Video" and "Best Female Video." This week, artists nominated for "Best Pop Video" and "Best Hip Hop" were revealed and there were some recognizable names like Kanye West, Mary J. Blige and Britney Spears as well as a few "soon to be household names" like Flo Rida, Tokio Hotel and Danity Kane. In Addition, the always charming southern rapper and critical darling Lil Wayne has just been confirmed to perform at this year's VMAs.
As previously announced, MTV's 25th annual Video Music Awards will be hosted by comedian/actor Russell Brand and will air live and only one time in its original incarnation, on Sunday, September 7, 2008 at 9PM (Live ET/Tape Delayed PT).
