Megan Thee Stallion is all over the first-round ballot for the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards.

She is entered in both categories with her own hits “Body” and “Thot Shit,” and as a featured artist on Cardi B’s “WAP,” Lil Baby’s “On Me” (remix) and Maroon 5’s “Beautiful Mistakes.”

Justin Bieber and Dua Lipa each have three entries for video of the year. Bieber is entered with “Peaches” (featuring Daniel Caesar & Giveon), “Lonely” (a collab with Benny Blanco) and “Monster” (a collab with Shawn Mendes). Lipa is entered with “Levitating” (featuring DaBaby) and as featured artist on Miley Cyrus’s “Prisoner” and J Balvin’s “One Day (Un Dia)” (which also features Tainy).

The Grammys Have Never Won a Top Program Emmy: Could This Be the Year?

  The Grammys Have Never Won a Top Program Emmy: Could This Be the Year? The 2021 Grammy Awards telecast was nominated for an Emmy for outstanding variety special (live). It’s the seventh time that the annual Grammy telecast has been nominated in that category (or in equivalent predecessor categories). Here’s a recap.Here’s a recap of the seven Grammy telecasts that were nominated for a top program award.

First-round voting, in which industry members and other insiders help determine the nominees, closes on Tuesday, July 20, at 4 p.m. PT. The ballot consists of 12 “creative categories” and six “technical categories.”

The VMAs did away with gendered categories four years ago, when they introduced the gender-neutral artist of the year category. Male and female artists are about evenly represented in that category this year — there are 15 male and 17 female entrants.

Most of the artists nominated for artist of the year are in their 20s or 30s, but there are a few exceptions. This year’s oldest contender is Jennifer Lopez, 51, followed by DJ Khaled, 45, and Alicia Keys, 40. It’s a huge achievement for older artists to retain their relevancy in what is very much a young person’s game.

Canada Olympics schedule today: Day-by-day TV coverage to watch Team Canada at 2021 Tokyo Games

  Canada Olympics schedule today: Day-by-day TV coverage to watch Team Canada at 2021 Tokyo Games Sporting News has you covered on how to watch every Team Canada competition, including start times and TV channels for every sport, every day of the Tokyo Olympics.Canada is filled with gold-medal dreams as 370 athletes — including heavy favourites such as swimmer Penny Oleksiak and sprinter Andre De Grasse — take the field, pool, court or floor across Tokyo and Japan. While there are a number of first-timers, there's also a handful of athletes who are competing in a sport that's making its debut in 2021, such as sports climbing and skateboarding.

The youngest contenders for artist of the year are Olivia Rodrigo, 18, and Billie Eilish, 19.

Two artists — Juice WRLD and Pop Smoke – are vying in that category posthumously.

Rock, which was still the dominant genre when the VMAs launched in 1984, is this year’s most thinly populated genre category, with just 17 entries. Pop is this year’s most crowded genre category, with 80 entries, followed by hip-hop (65), alternative (53), K-pop (40), R&B (37), and Latin (29).

The VMAs are apparently dropping the best group category, which they brought back in 2019 following a 12-year absence. BTS won the last two years. The red-hot septet is likely to be nominated in several other categories. BTS could be headed for its third consecutive win for best K-pop and its second straight win for best pop. They are entered in both categories this year with “Butter,” which spent its first seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Executive of the Week: S10 Entertainment Founder/CEO Brandon Silverstein

  Executive of the Week: S10 Entertainment Founder/CEO Brandon Silverstein With the success of Normani and Cardi B’s “Wild Side,” S10 Entertainment founder/CEO Brandon Silverstein earns the title of Billboard’s Executive of the Week. The success of Normani’s latest single isn’t the only recent win for Silverstein: he also manages Anitta, whose “Girl From Rio” track continues to get spins on mainstream and rhythmic radio while, three years after partnering with Roc Nation, S10 just launched a new publishing division, which Silverstein describes as “a long-term play.

Voters are asked to pick their top five choices in each category in descending order. There is an option for write-in candidates. Voters can click a link on the online ballot to see the video in every category.

The six technical categories are best direction, best art direction, best cinematography, best editing, best visual effects and best cinematography. Only the artists’ names appear on the ballot in the technical categories, not the name of the pro who shares the award with the artist.

This year’s VMAs are set for Sept. 12 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. This will be the show’s second time at that venue. The VMAs first originated from Barclays eight years ago.

40 years ago MTV went to the start

 40 years ago MTV went to the start New York. 40 years ago, MTV was the first pure music television to start. The most influential music channel in the world started stylishly with the words: "Ladies and Gentlemen, Rock'n Roll." The self-medirical followed the first song "Video Killed the Radio Star". © - The logo of the music channel MTV (symbol image). The music television should revolutionize the industry and make musicians to world stars - but it got overpowering competition in recent decades.
