Idolator Staff | July 21, 2011 11:36 am

The MTV Video Music Award nominations were announced last night by everybody’s favorite planking mermaid, Katy Perry, who scored big by being nominated nine times for four different videos — “E.T.,” “Firework,” “Last Friday Night,” and “Teenage Dream” (the last of which was nominated for Best Cinematography). Not too shabby! Kanye West was the leader of the pack with 11 nominations, though unlike Katy, he missed out on a nod for the top prize, Video of the Year. In case your memory is rusty or you simply haven’t seen some the year’s best visuals, head below to watch all five nominees for Video of the Year. 

Adele, “Rolling In The Deep”

Beastie Boys, “Make Some Noise”

Bruno Mars, “Grenade”

Katy Perry, “Firework”

Tyler, The Creator “Yonkers”

After reviewing the finalists, who do you think should win?
