Full Nomination List For Sunday’s 2015 MTV Video Music Awards:

Powered by her theatrical “Bad Blood” video, Taylor Swift will carry a leading nine nominations into Sunday’s presentation of the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.

Ed Sheeran has six nods heading into the ceremony, which will be held at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

Swift’s “Bad Blood” and Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” will compete for the top prize of video of the year, along with Beyonce’s “7/11,” Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright.”
