Nominations and a performance? Oh MTV you spoil us.
The nominations for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards have LITERALLY just been announced.
And you had better hold on to your ovaries - because not only have One Direction been nominated for two awards – but they’ll also be performing at the bash!
Louis, Harry, Zayn, Liam and Niall have been nominated in the ‘Best Pop Video’ and ‘Best New Artist’ categories, but face some tough competition.
The “What Makes You Beautiful” vid will go up against Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend”, Maroon 5’s “Payphone”, fun.’s “We Are Young” and Rihanna’s “We Found Love” videos.
Meanwhile fellow Brits The Wanted have also been nominated for the Best New Artist award, along with Carly Rae Jepsen, Frank Ocean and fun.
Speaking to MTV News about performing at the hugely famous awards ceremony - which will take place on September 6th at Staples Center in LA - Liam Payne said: "We're really looking forward to the VMAs.
“It's quite nerve-racking as well, because obviously there's been so many historical moments and stuff that have happened at the VMAs. Now we want to make a moment ourselves, but who knows?"
Oh boys, trust us - you'll make a moment.
"I think performing at the VMAs is such a huge occasion," he added. "I think it ranks up there with one of the best performances we'll do so far."
And Harry Styles had something to say about the whole thing too – revealing that the performance will be dedicated to you lot, the fans.
"It's a big occasion to perform at the VMAs, and we're here for our fans," said Hazza. "So this one's for our fans."
We don’t know whether to swoon, scream, or jump up and down until we’re sick. Perhaps we’ll do all three.
Bring on Septemeber 6th, eh?
