Adele, Beyoncé and Rihanna nominated for 2016 MTV VMA, none for Taylor Swift

Beyoncé has 11 nominations for this year's Video Music Awards

MTV has announced its nominees for the 2016 Video Music Awards on Facebook Live on Tuesday.

This year, we see Beyoncé leading the pack with a total of 11 award nominations, the most she’s ever gotten in a single year.

Queen B’s female-power anthem, ‘Formation,’ has been nominated for ‘Video of the Year’ and ‘Best Pop Video,’ while her groundbreaking HBO special ‘Lemonade‘ is going for a new VMA category called ‘Breakthrough Long Form Video.’

Adele followed closely behind with seven nominations, including ‘Video of the Year,’ for her viral hit ‘Hello,’ and one nomination for her single, ‘Send My Love (To Your New Lover).’

Also up for the ‘Video of the Year’ are Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling,’ Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry,’ and Kanye West’s ‘Famous.’

The five nominees are also featured on a panoramic mural painting in New York’s East Village.

A surprising twist for this year is that Taylor Swift, who took home the most number of awards at last year’s show, including ‘Video of the Year’ and ‘Best Female Video,’ has got zero nominations this time around.

Swift had a total of 10 nominations, the most out of all the nominees, at the 2015 VMAs, with eight for ‘Bad Blood’ and two for ‘Blank Space.’

According to US Weekly, Swift may have been struck out this year’s nomination list because her album came out in 2014.

The 2016 MTV VMAs will air live from Madison Square Garden on 28 August.

Here’s the full list of this year’s nominees:
