The event - which will take place at New York's Madison Square Garden, on 28th August 2016 - will see how many awards Adele will walk away with, having been nominated for eight this year. Other nominees include Drake, Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber.

All of the stars and celebrities were BUZZING to be nominated for a MTV VMA... Well, most of them, anyway. Zara Larsson couldn't believe her luck, when she posted "Is this actually happening right now???"; DNCE and Alessia Cara were so pleased to be nominated, and as for Fifth Harmony? Just see their reaction for yourself.

But poor Nick Jonas seemed a little upset with this year's results. Don't worry, Nick - we're rootin' for you next year!
