The n

ominees were announced this morning for the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. The moonman award show returns to our TVs on August 30, and it will be hosted by twerk-tastic singer Miley Cyrus.

Leading the charge this year, perhaps unsurprisingly, is pop sensation Taylor Swift with nine nods in her direction.  Upon hearing the news, Miss Swift took to her Instagram to post a video of her in fight training for the "Bad Blood" video, along with a thank you message.
