There are two men that people haven’t stopped talking about for the past year – Justin Timberlakeand Macklemore with his PIC Ryan Lewis. They both killed the music game with chart topping singles and dominating albums – JT being the over-achiever he is releasing two albums in one year.

Clearly MTV noticed these two gentlemen since they both lead the pack for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards nominees, each nominated for six categories including “Video of the Year.” Hmm, did we like “Mirrors” or “Thrift Shop” more? Or what about “Suit & Tie” vs. “Can’t Hold Us?”
