Beyoncé and Justin Bieber are leading the charge, but we're predicting a few curve balls on the night!

Check out our predictions of who we think will walk away with each award, and don't forget to check back on Sunday to night to see how right (or wrong) we were!

 

Best Song

PREDICTION: Adele - 'Hello'

Adele - 'Hello'

Official Music Video

06:06

The biggest award of the night is always the toughest to call, but Adele's comeback single from late 2015 smashed pretty much every record imaginable, so we'd put good money on our homegrown queen picking up Best Song.

  • Adele - 'Hello'
  • Justin Bieber - 'Sorry'
  • Lukas Graham - '7 Years'
  • Mike Posner - 'Ibiza'
  • Rihanna feat. Drake - 'Work'

 

Best Video

PREDICTION: Beyoncé - 'Formation'

Beyonce - 'Formation'

Official Music Video

04:52

 

This is a no brainer - while Kanye's 'Famous' may have made a few headlines, it's pretty much forgotten by now. 'Formation' is timeless, and just oozes sass. Queen Bey's got this in the bag!

  • Beyoncé - 'Formation'
  • Coldplay - 'Up&Up'
  • Kanye West - 'Famous'
  • Tame Impala - 'The Less I Know the Better'
  • The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk - 'Starboy'

 

Best Female

PREDICTION: Beyoncé

*see above* - Queen Bey has had a killer year, and totally deserves the recognition for it. Lemonade was one of this century's biggest achievements (yes, even bigger than Hoverboards and selfie sticks), and we've all grown up practically wanting to BE Beyoncé!

  • Adele
  • Beyoncé
  • Lady Gaga
  • Rihanna
  • Sia

 

Best Male

PREDICTION: Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber MTV EMAs 2015

There're THREE Canadians battling it out in this category, but with his Purpose tour in full swing, and a slew of chart hits with Major Lazer and DJ Snake, as well as his solo material, we think Justin might just win this one.

  • Calvin Harris
  • Drake
  • Justin Bieber
  • Shawn Mendes
  • The Weeknd

 

Best Live Act

PREDICTION: Beyoncé

While Adele has proved to be the most hilarious and entertaining person EVER on tour, we're predicting that Beyoncé's unrivalled energy on stage will pick her up the Best Live Act award this year.

  • Adele
  • Beyoncé
  • Coldplay
  • Green Day
  • Twenty One Pilots

 

Best New

PREDICTION: Zara Larsson

Zara Larsson Summertime Ball 2016

2016 was one of the best years of the century for fresh new talent, and while all 5 of these acts have had big hits on the Vodafone Big Top 40, Zara Larsson's fierceness and awesome live performances at our Summertime Ball and Monster Mash-Up just give her the edge.

  • Bebe Rexha
  • DNCE
  • Lukas Graham
  • The Chainsmokers
  • Zara Larsson

 

Best Pop

PREDICTION: Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande feat. Nicki Minaj - 'Side To Side'

Official Music Video

03:57

Pint-size diva Ariana Grande is the perfect popstar - she's got the look, attitude and, obviously, the flawless vocals. This award's got Ari's name written all over it!

  • Ariana Grande
  • Fifth Harmony
  • Justin Bieber
  • Rihanna
  • Selena Gomez
  • Shawn Mendes

 

Best Rock

PREDICTION: Coldplay

  • Coldplay
  • Green Day
  • Metallica
  • Muse
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers

 

Best Alternative

PREDICTION: Twenty On Pilots

  • Kings of Leon
  • Radiohead
  • Tame Impala
  • The 1975
  • Twenty One Pilots

 

Best Hip Hop

PREDICTION: Drake

Sorry Kanye, but Drake's had the most streamed song of ALL TIME*! (*2016)

  • Drake
  • Future
  • G-Eazy
  • Kanye West
  • Wiz Khalifa

 

Best Electronic

PREDICTION: Martin Garrix

Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha - 'In The Name Of Love'

Official Music Video

03:15

Our favourite Dutchman on the planet was just named the No.1 DJ in the world, so it'd be a travesty if he missed out on this accolade, right?

  • Afrojack
  • Calvin Harris
  • David Guetta
  • Major Lazer
  • Martin Garrix

 

Best Look

PREDICTION: Sia

Sia feat. Kendrick Lamar - 'The Greatest'

Official Music Video

05:51

While the other 4 ladies on the list may have wowed us on various red carpets, nobody's look in the world of pop is more distinctive than Sia, with her trademark wigs. Although it would be a little ironic if she won this award for her look, as she dresses that way so people focus more on her music than her style...

  • Lady Gaga
  • Rihanna
  • Beyoncé
  • Sia
  • Bebe Rexha

 

Best Push

PREDICTION: DNCE

As far as breakthroughs go, there are SO many names on this list we could see taking the award home, but with an ever-growing fanbase and unique quirkiness, DNCE are our prediction.

  • Alessia Cara
  • Anne-Marie
  • Bebe Rexha
  • Blossoms
  • Charlie Puth
  • DNCE
  • Dua Lipa
  • Elle King
  • Halsey
  • Jack Garratt
  • Jonas Blue
  • Lukas Graham

 

Biggest Fans

PREDICTION: Justin Bieber

When you think of dedicated fanbases, you automatically think of Beliebers - and with the Directioners missing out on a nomination this year, they've surely got it in the bag!

  • Ariana Grande
  • Beyoncé
  • Justin Bieber
  • Lady Gaga
  • Shawn Mendes

 

Best UK & Ireland Act

PREDICTION: Little Mix

Little Mix - 'Shout Out To My Ex'

Official Music Video

04:12

While we think Adele will snap this one up for breaking records worldwide with '25', we've gotta support our girls! 'Shout Out To My Ex' is the PERFECT pop song and the ladies' last tour, 'Get Weird', was absolute perfection!

  • Adele
  • Coldplay
  • Little Mix
  • ZAYN
  • Years & Years

 

Best World Stage Performance

PREDICTION: Martin Garrix

  • Duran Duran
  • Ellie Goulding
  • Jess Glynne
  • Martin Garrix
  • OneRepublic
  • Tinie Tempah
  • Tomorrowland
  • Wiz Khalifa

 

Global Icon

WINNER: Green Day

 

Best US Act

PREDICTION: Beyoncé

  • Ariana Grande
  • Beyoncé
  • Charlie Puth
  • Kanye West
  • Twenty One Pilots

 

Best Canadian Act

PREDICTION: Drake

  • Alessia Cara
  • Drake
  • Justin Bieber
  • Shawn Mendes
