The 2016 MTV Video Music Awards nominees were announced today, and Beyoncé unsurprisingly leads the pack with 11 nominations. She’s followed by Adele‘s eight (of which “Hello” is responsible for seven). Both women are up for Video of the Year (“Formation” and “Hello,” respectively), along with Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” and Kanye West’s “Famous.” “Formation” is swapped out for “Hold Up” in the Best Female Video category, so try to figure that one out if you can.

Rihanna has two shots at winning Best Collaboration, thanks to nods for “Work” and “This Is What You Came For.” Same goes for Bey in the Best Choreography category, with “Formation” and “Sorry.” Also notable: David Bowie is up for four VMAs thanks to his “Blackstar” and “Lazarus” visuals.

The 2016 MTV VMAs air live on August 28 at 9 p.m. ET from New York’s Madison Square Garden. Check out the full list of nominees below.
