Justin Bieber And The Weeknd At Much Music Video Awards
Justin Bieber and The Weeknd will face off at the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards (MMVAs) next month, as they both vie for the title of Most Buzzworthy Canadian.
While both stars have enjoyed huge musical success they also have another thing in common – Selena Gomez. Justin had an on-off relationship for years with the Hands to Myself star, who is currently dating The Weeknd.
Sorry singer Justin has also publicly slammed The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, calling his music “wack” (bad), before his rival hit back when he featured on Nav’s song Some Way.
Now the duo will have to compete at the much-anticipated MMVAs, with both nominated in the Canadian favourite category. It remains to be seen whether they both attend the ceremony, to be held at Toronto’s Bell Media building on 18 June.
They also have some competition from Alessia Cara, Drake and Shawn Mendes.
Shawn led the pack when the nominations were released, as he’s up for four awards, including Best Pop Video and the Fan Favourite category Artist or Group.
Grimes and A Tribe Called Red also received four nominations apiece, with The Weeknd, Lorde, Drake, Ed Sheeran, Alessia, PUP and Zeds Dead close behind with three nominations each.
British singer Ed and New Zealand-born Lorde will face off in the Most Buzzworthy International Artist or Group category, alongside Iggy Azalea, Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga, while former One Direction star Niall Horan and ex Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello are in with a chance of winning the Best New International Artist gong – if they can beat Chance The Rapper, Lil Yachty and Post Malone.
Niall, who is also up for Fan Favourite International Artist or Group, will be among the performers at the ceremony, with Iggy, Lorde, DNCE and Imagine Dragons also planning to take to the stage.
