The Names You Need to Know at This Year's VMAs

Have no fear if you don't know your Iggy from your Avicii! Study up on 5 Seconds of Summer, Ariana Grande, Sam Smith and more stars vying for Moonmen

Azalea's "Fancy" collaborator made a name for herself this summer with "Boom Clap," and now she's vying for video of the year, best female video, best pop video, best art direction and artist to watch.
