Harry Styles, Adele and Ed Sheeran face off at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards

British music stars like Harry Styles, Adele and Ed Sheeran will compete at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards.

Face competition from US heavyweights including Billie Eilish, Jack Harlow and Lil Nas X, at the annual ceremony for the event known as the VMAs.

Styles, Harlow and Doja Cat are the top three at this year’s event, with eight nominations each, followed by Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Lil Nas, with seven.

Styles has earned top awards including artist of the year, best album for his latest release Harry’s House and video of the year for As It Was.

The 28-year-old superstar will usurp British colleague Ed Sheeran for the title of artist of the year, in an American-dominated category that also includes Drake, Bad Bunny and Lizzo.

Harry’s House goes up against Billie Eilish’s Happier Than Ever, Drake’s Certified Lover Boy and the highly anticipated 30 for Adele’s album of the year.

Also vying for coveted video of the year are Doja Cat, for Woman, Jack Harlow and Lil Nas X, for Industry Baby, Olivia Rodrigo, for Brutal and Taylor Swift, for All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version).

The second season, which features Stranger Things star Sadie Sink, went viral earlier this year after fans speculated the song was based on Swift’s breakup with actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

Honorable mentions will be given to The Red Hot Chili Peppers, who will receive the global icon award, and Nicki Minaj, who is expected to receive the Video Vanguard award.

Minaj will also host the show alongside Harlow and LL Cool J, with a host of famous faces taking on award duties including Avril Lavigne and DJ Khaled.

Performances are expected from hip-hop stars Eminem and Snoop Dogg, Lizzo, J Balvin and Bad Bunny, who will stream his live stream from Yankee Stadium.

This year’s VMAs had 26 candidates nominated for the first time, including Baby Keem with four along with Kacey Musgraves, Gayle and Eurovision 2021 winner Maneskin, each with two nominations.
