The Much Music Video Awards recently announced the nominees for this year’s event, and they include Drake, Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons, Hedley, and Lorde.

Toronto’s own Drake and West Coast rockers Hedley are tied at the top the list with an impressive six nominations each for the 2014 Much Music Video Awards. Vancouver hip hop artist SonReal scored five nods, while indie ensemble Arcade Fire and alternative R&B artist The Weeknd picked up four nominations each.

Both previously announced performers Imagine Dragons and Lorde nabbed two MMVA nominations each, a first for both artists. Additional first-time nominees include music innovator Pharrell, Australian boy band 5 Seconds of Summer, Canadian artists July Talk, Keys N Krates, MAGIC!, Thugli, and many more. Kendall and Kylie Jenner co-host the 25th anniversary of the MMVAs, airing live, coast-to-coast-to-coast, Sunday, June 15th at 9pm, simulcast on Much, CTV, and CTV GO.

Additional performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.

“We have an outstanding list of MMVA nominees this year, and we salute each of the artists – both those in front of and behind the camera,” said Sheila Sullivan, Executive Producer of the 2014 Much Music Video Awards. “We look forward to welcoming the nominees to the one-of-a-kind MMVA experience on June 15.”
