At last year's MTV VMAs, Rihanna won Video of the Year for "We Found Love," making her only the second artist in the 29-year history of these kudos to take the top prize twice (Eminem was the first).
At this year's kudos, that top award is guaranteed to go to a first-time champion. Justin Timberlake and hip-duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who reaped a leading six bids each, contend with “Mirrors” and "Thrift Shop” respectively. The race is rounded out by Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven,” Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines."
You can now predict who will take home that prize as well as the 14 others to be handed out at the 2013 MTV VMA Awards, which air live across the MTV family of networks on Aug. 25.
