Rounding out the top three after Lamar are Katy Perry and The Weeknd, who both notched five nods of their own. There’ll be some stiff competition at this year’s show, especially given that after this year’s MTV TV and Movie Awards, the network is continued to lead the way in doing away with gendered nominations, meaning Lamar, Bruno Mars, Ariana Grande, Lorde, The Weeknd and Ed Sheeran will all be battling it out for Artist of the Year.

The 2017 VMAs will air live from The Forum in Inglewood, California, on Sunday, Aug. 27 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
