The 27th annual MTV Video Music Awards will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday.

So, what will happen this year? Let’s go back and refresh our memory on VMA. The most memorable moment at the last year’s VMA was definitely when Taylor Swift won the Moonman for Best Female Video over superstars like Beyonc©, Pink, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Lady Gaga. While surprised Swift was giving the audience her acceptance speech, Kanye West suddenly appeared on stage. He took the microphone from her and said, "Taylor, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you finish, but Beyonc© had one of the best videos of all time … of all time!" After West left the stage, Swift was left behind on stage, totally being spaced out and unsure about what just happened.

So, this week, just ahead of this year’s show, West has been tweeting to apologize to Swift for interrupting her VMA speech last year: "I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that’s so beautiful and I want her to have it. If she won’t take it then I’ll perform it for her." "We’re both artists, and the media and managers are trying to get between us." "I became George Bush over night." "I’m sorry Taylor."

Whether or not it is an appropriate way to apologize, what will happen this year? Here are some nominees for this year’s VMA.

According to MTV News, Lady Gaga’s got 13 total nominations such as in a single VMA year, and she’s also the first female musician nominated for two different videos in the Video of the Year category for "Bad Romance" and "Telephone" featuring Beyonc©.

Eminem got eight VMA nominations, including "Best Male Video," and "Video of the Year" for "Not Afraid."

In the new artist category, both Florence + The Machine and B.o.B. are up for five VMAs respectively, Ke$ha‘s up for three Moonmen and Justin Bieber is nominated as a Best New Artist for “Baby.”
