Best Female Video
Will Win - Taylor Swift "I Knew You Were Trouble"
Could Win - Rihanna feat. Mikky Echo "Stay" or P!nk feat. Nate Ruess "Just Give Me a Reason"
Should Win - P!nk feat. Nate Ruess "Just Give Me a Reason"
Commentary - Unfortunately, this race looks like a giveaway, with Swift most likely crushing her competition. I would love to see P!nk win, as her videos are always emotional and inventive instead of Swifts standards, but oh well. Swift has been playing the victim card really well since Kanye messed up her VMA moment a few years ago, and sympathy (as well as teen popularity), will most likely win the night.
Best Male Video
Will Win - Justin Timberlake "Mirrors"
Could Win - Robin Thicke feat. T.I and Pharrell "Blurred Lines"
Should Win - Kendrick Lamar "Swimming Pools (Drank)"
Commentary - I honestly don't know which of the two frontrunners is going to win this category. Blurred Lines is an opportunity to reward three popular male artists, and it has become the song of the summer, you literally cannot escape it. But I think there is a lot of love for Justin Timberlake, and he is also considered an artist. I am going with Timberlake. By final list time on Sunday, it could easily change.
