Each year, MTV’s Video Music Awards give us countless indelible moments. From Lady Gaga wearing the iconic dress made out of raw meat, to Kanye West infamously slighting Taylor Swift on stage, the VMAs never fail to give us some of the biggest moments in pop culture. Perhaps most coveted is VMAs’ Best New Artist award, which recognizes some of the most talented emerging artists on the scene. Well, MTV has just unveiled its full list of nominations and they are including 17 artists.
