MTV Japan
has just revealed the nominees for its "MTV VIDEO MUSIC AID JAPAN" awards!

The results were tallied based on votes sent by viewers to Viacom. Further voting for the winners in each category will be revealed at a later date, allowing fans to vote for their favorites for each individual award.

Instead of the usual awards ceremony, MTV has decided to hold a charity event at Makuhari Messe Event Hall on June 25th, with all proceeds donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society as earthquake relief funds.

Idol group AKB48 will serve as the MCs for the event, with artists like Lady Gaga, Nishino Kana, EXILE, BENI, w-inds, and more scheduled to perform.
