We wonder if they'll be taking home the awards too. Justin's "Boyfriend" is up against fun.'s "We Are Young," Maroon 5's "Payphone," One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful," and Rihanna's "We Found Love." It's also nominated for Best Male Video. As for Katy, two of her videos are nominated this year! "Part of Me" for Best Female Video and "Wide Awake" for Video of the Year.
