VMAs announce 4 social categories, bringing Taylor Swift to 11 nominations

On September 1, 2023, less than two weeks before the main event on September 12, the MTV Video Music Awards announced the nominees in four more categories. Show of the Summer, Group of the Year, Song of Summer and Album of the Year will also be voted on by fans, but unlike the other public categories like Video of the Year that are decided on MTV’s website, these will be voted on through MTV’s Instagram Stories starting on Sunday, September 3.

With these VMA social media nominations counted, Taylor Swift remains on top with 11 total bids this year, followed by SZA with eight; Blackpink, Doja Cat, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Olivia Rodrigo with six; Kim Petras and Sam Smith with five; and Beyoncé, Diddy, Drake, Ice Spice, Karol G, Metro Boomin, Shakira and Tomorrow X Together with four.
