The MTV Video Music Awards take place at The Forum in Inglewood, California Sunday night. By far, the ‘moonman’ for Video Of The Year is the most prestigious one that everyone wants. Iggy Azalea (“Fancy”), Beyonce (“Drunk In Love”), Miley Cyrus (“Wrecking Ball”), Sia (“Chandelier”) and Pharrell Williams (“Happy”) are all in contention for the big award.

Even though Bey leads with the most nominations, my money is on either Iggy or Sia to take home the prize. Whoever wins will join an illustrious group of past winners which includes Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

Check out their winning offerings below along with some others that aren’t so easy to recall. Remember Panic! At The Disco? Weigh in below on which ones are your favorites and your prediction on who’ll reign supreme this year.

The Harmonizers have spoken!!! Almost universally, Fifth Harmony’s fans rejected the above album cover for the group’s forthcoming album titled Reflection. I don’t blame them. The above photo is mediocre at best and totally pedestrian. It looks like a cheap ad for Wet Seal.

Speaking of which, the retailer is offering up a 5H collection. #younggirlsaresosluttythesedays ;) Wisely, the group offered up new artwork for their debut album and it SLAYS. They look fantastic. Check it out below.

In other 5H-related news, the girls shared a new track with MTV titled “Them Girls Be Like.” It keeps in line with the girls’ mantra of self empowerment. However this time, the new single offers a little Mean Girls bitchy ‘you can’t sit with us‘ vibe. Hopefully for the girl group, radio supports this song.

Reportedly, radio blacklisted “Bo$$” for all the Michelle Obama namedropping. While the excessive Obama references were annoying, the track was supremely catchy and thought it’d be their breakout hit. Sadly, that hasn’t transpired. Give their latest a whirl below.

Fingers crossed the actual 2014 MTV VMA telecast will be half as entertaining as the rehearsals. If it is, it’ll be a show to remember. Both Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea experienced mishaps during their respective sets. Luckily for us, TMZ was there to witness it all.

While Britney Spears was able to handle a boa constrictor with ease during her iconic performance at the 2001 VMAs, Nicki Minaj wasn’t so fortunate. Or should I say one of her backup dancers. According to TMZ, a female performer was bitten by an anaconda. She was reportedly rushed to hospital where she’s being treated for a possible infection. No word on whether Minaj plans on keeping the snake during her routine.

When it was time for Azalea to take her run-through, she took a tumble. A bad one at that. The Aussie fell off the stage during her “Fancy” performance. Security guards immediately came to the rescue and pulled her back up without any serious injuries. Taking it all in stride, Iggy posted the fall via Instagram, praising how she continued to rap despite the mishap. Check it out below.

Charting in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 is already a remarkable feat. Having three entries simultaneously chart is downright impressive. Both Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea achieve this rare accomplishment on this week’s chart. These two are definitely having a banner year.

Grande does it thanks to “Break Free” (No. 4) and her collaboration with Jessie J. “Bang Bang” (No. 10) joining her smash “Problem” (No. 7) in the Top 10. Meanwhile, Iggy does it courtesy of her Rita Ora-assisted jam, “Black Widow” (No. 8), reaching the top tier standing alongside “Fancy” (No. 5) and “Problem” (No. 7).

Vancouver indie star Jess Cullen and her band are set to release their next single this Friday night at Joe’s Apartment. In case you haven’t heard of her, Jess Cullen is one of Vancouver’s most promising rising stars. In 2012 she won local talent competition Davie’s Got Talent and has continued building on that success ever since.

After releasing her first full length album on iTunes last year, as well as a music video (see below), Jess and her band continued winning more local competitions. Most recently they won the chance to play alongside bands like Foster the People at the Squamish Music Festival. Hot off of their performance at Squamish Music Festival, Jess and her band are set to release their next single “At First Light”.

Can’t wait for Ariana Grande’s new album to drop on August 25? You’re in luck. The 21-year-old singer shared four tracks off My Everything with MTV.

Grande’s often been compared to a young Mariah Carey and with a couple of these new offerings it’s quite evident, especially on “Be My Baby” featuring Cashmere Cat. She’s sooooo mini Mimi there.

Other tracks previewed include “A Little Bit Of Your Heart” co-written by One Direction’s Harry Styles, “Love Me Harder” featuring The Weeknd and “Why Try.” I can’t wait to hear the entire LP. Check out all four tracks below.
