MTV Video Awards 2013 - Justin Timberlake ist ein Favorit

Die Nominierten stehen fest

Der Musikzirkus steht bald wieder Kopf, wenn in New York die MTV Video Music Awards 2013 verliehen werden. Als Favoriten liefern sich Justin Timberlake und Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ein Kopf-an-Kopf-Rennen.

Alles, was in der Musikbranche Rang und Namen hat wird am  25. August über den Roten Teppich laufen. Dabei dürften die heißesten Anwärter auf die Trophäe besonders nervös sein.

Timberlake feierte erst in diesem Jahr sein opulentes Comeback samt Jay Z und darf gleich auf sechs MTV Video Music Awards hoffen. Unter anderem ist seine Hit-Single "Mirrors" in der Kategorie "Video of the Year" nominiert. Doch auch Macklemore & Ryan Lewis müssen sich nicht verstecken. In der gleichen Kategorie nominiert dürfen sie auf den Award für das Video ihres Hits "Thrift Shop" hoffen.

Dicht gefolgt von Bruno Mars mit vier Nominierungen, dürfe die Show aus dem Barclays Center in Brooklyn spannend werden. Auch Pink, Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus und Thirty Seconds To Mars sind drei Mal nominiert.
