Morris is up for three nominations. Both Morris and Barrett are up for Female Video of the Year.

ET recently spoke with Barrett on her whirlwind year and success after being on American Idol.

"It's overwhelming but in the best way," she told ET. "This is one of those things where it’s hard to put into words because it doesn’t really feel real. When you work for so long towards something and it actually happens it’s hard for me to switch gears because I've just been in the mode of trying to get to these places, getting on the award, and getting number one songs. Now that you're actually at the pit stop, 'We're here, we're making a stop.' It’s like 'Whoa!' It's really cool."
