The MTV Video Music Awards are right around the corner; the ceremony will air August 28. The nominees were announced today, so I thought I'd try my hand at predicting some of the winners. Here goes nothing:
Video of the Year
The Nominees: Adele: "Rolling in the Deep"; Tyler, the Creator: "Yonkers"; Katy Perry: "Firework"; Bruno Mars: "Grenade"; Beastie Boys: "Make Some Noise"
My Pick: Adele
My Rationale: This is really Adele's year, considering the successful album and tour. Given that she has a widespread popularity across the U.S. and UK, and that the award is based on a vote, I think she has this one in the bag. That, and Katy Perry has eight other opportunities to win an award.
