Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' has been chosen for promoting a, "world free from prejudice, judgment and self-doubt".

While 'Firework' from Katy Perry has been selected for, "celebrating the spark and originality in all of us".

Other nominees include Pink's 'Perfect' and Rihanna and Eminem's 'Love The Way You Lie'.
