It looks like Mariah Carey has another chance to pick up her first âmoonmanâ at this yearâs MTV Video Music Awards. The âIâll Be Loving You Long Timeâ singer scored a Best Female Video nomination in the first round of voting at MTV.com this week. Careyâs âTouch My Bodyâ has benefited from MTVâs groundbreaking decision to allow fans to select nominees for this yearâs Video Music Awards. The singer who shares the Best Female Video category with Jordin Sparks (âNo Airâ), Rihanna (âTake A Bowâ), Britney Spears (âPiece of Meâ) and Katy Perry (âI Kissed A Girlâ) picked up thousands of votes on the networks website. Not far behind the Best Male Video nominees picked up a scorching amount of votes earning Chris Brown, Usher, Lil Wayne, T.I. and Flo Rida a spot in the top five. Brown, who recently announced plans for a reality dance competition earned a nomination for the hit single âWith You,â while his veteran counterpart Usher landed a nomination for the hit club anthem âLove In This Club.â Hip Hop dominated the remainder of the Best Male Video category led by T.I., Flo Rida and chart topping star Lil Wayne. The 25th Annual MTV Video Music Awards are set to take place in Hollywood on September 7th, performers and presenters are to be announced next month. Voting for the awards continues this week with a chance to nominate your top pick for Best Hip Hop Video and Best Pop Video.
