Justin Timberlake and Beyoncé Knowles have scored a leading seven nominations each for this year's MTV Video Music Awards, it was announced on Total Request Live Tuesday.

Kanye West and Rihanna were just shy of the top spots with five nominations each, while newcomer Amy Winehouse received three.

Timberlake's "What Goes Around ... Comes Around," Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable," West's "Stronger," Rihanna's "Umbrella," Winehouse's "Rehab" and French electro duo Justice's "D.A.N.C.E." will face off for the video of year honors.

West and Rihanna (and sporting a cane) were on TRL Tuesday when the nominations were announced – as were fellow scheduled performers Chris Brown, Timbaland and Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz.

MTV also announced that the VMAs will be a one-night stand this year, airing live from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas at 9 p.m. on Sept. 9.

The two-hour show will include eight categories – fan favorites as well as four new slots: Male/female artist of the year, most earthshattering collaboration; monster single of the year and quadruple threat award.
