The 2017 VMA Awards Are Doing Away With Gender in All Categories

He's also been recognized with nominations at the American Music Awards and Grammy Awards.

Brace yourselves for the biggest party of the year because the 2017 Video Music Awards will return to the west coast at The Forum in Inglewood, California! "MTV explained that his role was to "break" barriers" and have had positive responses when she had removed the categories by genre for the MTV Movie and TV Awards this year. With each five appointments follow Katy Perry with "Chained to the Rhythm" and The Weeknd for "Reminder". The nominees for the evening's top prize, artist of the year, are Lamar, the Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and Lorde.

Be sure to cast your vote now for all of your favorite categories like Video of the Year and Best New Artist, as well as some new categories this year like Artist of the Year and Best Fight Against the System.

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.
