Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift are proving the future is female – especially when it comes to epic music videos – with the announcement of the 2019 MTV VMAs nominations.

Grande and Swift cleaned up with 10 nominations each; both received nods in top categories including Video Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best Pop.

Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X aren’t far behind, with nine and eight nominations respectively including Video Of The Year and Best New Artist.

The announcement of the nominations overnight also gave hope for a Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper reunion; Shallow was nominated for Song Of The Year and Best Collaboration, meaning there’s reason for them to perform it one last time.

The 2019 MTV Video Music Awards ceremony will be held on August 26.
