Who do you think will win?July 31, 2012 at 1:57 pm #382255
I think One Direction or JB, because of their popularity. But IMO, We Found Love should winJuly 31, 2012 at 2:27 pm #382256
This is the category where they usually “Spread the Love”. If Rihanna wins VOTY and Female Vid, and JB wins Male Vid, then I could see this going to One Direction or Fun.July 31, 2012 at 3:33 pm #382257
Will WIn : Justin Bieber – “Boyfriend”
Should Win : Fun. f/ Janelle Monae – “We Are Young”
1D or Bieb will win this easily.July 31, 2012 at 3:33 pm #382258
Justin Bieber is winning…NEXT.
P.S. shout out to MTV for not making this category a Best Female Video Part II like they usually do.July 31, 2012 at 8:22 pm #382259
SHOULD WIN: Who cares?
WILL WIN: Justina DweeberAugust 1, 2012 at 2:49 pm #382260
I wouldn’t be that sure JB is winning because One Direction has a very large fanbase too. Maroon 5 would have bigger chances if it were “Moves Like Jagger”, but with “Payphone” it’s impossible.August 1, 2012 at 10:11 pm #382261
Most Likely to Least Likely:
1. Justin Bieber – “Boyfriend”
2. Rihanna – “We Found Love”
3. Fun f/Janelle Monae – “We Are Young”
4. One Direction – “What Makes You Beautiful”
5. Maroon 5 f/ Wiz Khalifa – “Payphone”
– Since its fan-voted, I doubt anyone wins besides Justin Bieber! However, Rihanna could spoil. I’m rooting for Rihanna to take it.August 2, 2012 at 8:44 am #382262
I think that the Beliebers will get greedy and try to get both awards JB’s nominated for, but they may let their guard down for one and lose it (and it might be this one). He still has a great shot, though. I can make a similar prediction for 1D, considering that much of their fanbase is shared with Biebs’. To me, that means Rihanna could spoil and take it. Not only was her song popular with people of various age brackets (although I HAVE bopped to “What Makes You Beautiful” so…), but her video was also great and received popular and critical acclaim. I know I’m vopting for her here, and I’m sure that others who aren’t Rihanna stans are doing so, too. She might just have enough force to take this award home.
I’m confused by fun. and Maroon 5’s nominations here: yeah, I know We Are Young is indie pop, but come on, it’s rockier than some of the stuff MTV has had up for Best Rock Video in the past (looking at you, Coldplay, Fall Out Boy, Florence and the Machine, and Foster the People). Meanwhile, “Payphone” was just a bad video. Granted, it was made pretty well; it was just the concept that was crap (and if I were Adam Levine I’d just blame my ADHD for it). And as others said, “Moves Like Jagger” would be a stronger nomination in this field.August 2, 2012 at 4:31 pm #382263
One Direction again. It’s funny to see teens blocking Bieber, although a case could be made for everyone. I gotta feeling that ‘Payphone’ could be the closest to pull an upset. ‘We Are Young’ the most deserving tho.August 4, 2012 at 9:23 am #382264
