Voting began online Tuesday for fans to weigh in on eight categories.

The Video Music Awards have usually been more about the spectacle than the ultimate winners, with the network gladly offering a global platform to celebrities.

Notably absent this year are music's power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z, who did not release any new music in the eligibility period of June 25, 2016, to June 23, 2017.

The first competitors are John Legend with "Surefire", which addresses the anti-immigrant and anti-muslim in the United States, as well as "Immigrants: We Get the Job Done" - from the musical to the phenomenal success of "Hamilton".

Also in the running is "Stand Up / Stand N Rock #NoDAPL", a hip-hop anthem led by Black Eyed Peas' Taboo to rally opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline opposed by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe on environmental and cultural grounds.
