Top female musicians, including Taylor Swift and Beyoncé, dominate the nominations for the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) in 2023. These renowned singers are in the running for the prestigious Artist of the Year award. Additionally, GloRilla and Ice Spice stand out with double nominations. The history of the VMA is marked by dramatic events and controversies, from iconic on-stage moments like Britney/Madonna/Christina’s kiss in 2003 to Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress in 2010 and Kanye West’s interruption of Taylor Swift in 2009.

This year’s VMA nominations are noteworthy for featuring female musicians prominently in various categories, from Video of The Year and Song of The Year to Best Collaboration, Best Pop, and beyond. Notable nominees include Doja Cat, Olivia Rodrigo, Miley Cyrus, SZA, and Nicki Minaj.

Taylor Swift leads with a total of 8 nominations, encompassing Video of the Year, Song of the Year, and more for her song “Anti Hero” (2022). The Artist of the Year category also includes strong contenders like Beyoncé, Shakira, Doja Cat, Karol G., and Nicki Minaj. With her history-making The Eras Tour, Swift could potentially surpass Madonna and Beyoncé as the female artist with the most VMA awards.

The MTV VMA Awards always captivate music fans of all genres, and this year’s event is no exception. Performers like Petras, Metro Boomin, and Boygenius are set to grace the stage. First-time nominees, including Fletcher, Rema, Arya Starr, Burna Boy, and Davido from the Best Afrobeats category, will also perform. Notably, GloRilla, Ice Spice, Peso Pluma, Reneé Rapp, Kaliii, and PinkPantheress have all secured double nominations for Best New Artist.
