Who'll take home the most Moon Men at the 2015 Video Music Awards? Will it be Taylor Swift, who has the most nods with 9 or the other multi-nominated artists such as Ed Sheeran (6), Beyoncé (4) or  Kendrick Lamar (4)? Fans may place their vote on the MTV site, which mean the winners may come down to who has the strongest an base. With Miley Cyrus helming the show as host, results and performances are all going down on August 30.


Putting the power completely in the hands of fans can be tricky.  The person who is most likely to have his or her face  on a postal stamp may not be the victor. VMA wins are not just about artist popularity, although all of them are immensely so. This competition is as much about fan club loyalty as it about the nominees themselves.  And those are some die-hard followers.  Beyoncé's Bee Hive, Swift's Swifties and Minaj's Barbs have made it known that they have no problem wielding their collective affection or wrath when deemed necessary.

It all goes down on Sunday, August 30 on MTV.
