Marianas Trench, Drake and Classified lead the pack as the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards nominees are revealed

The list of MMVA nominees is finally out and Vancouver rockers Marianas Trench can rejoice over their six nominations, which is more than any other artist has gotten this year. Toronto’s very own Drake was close behind with five and Classified scored four noms.

Demi Lovato, who was announced as the show’s first performer earlier this month, has been nominated in two categories while fellow Americans Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and co-host Psy nabbed their first ever MMVA noms.

The biggest street party on the planet - aka the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards – will be taking place in Toronto and airing live on MuchMusic on Sunday, June 16 at 9 p.m. ET and what can we possibly say other than WE. ARE. SOOOO. EXCITED.

If the list of nominees is any indication (which we think it is), this year's awards might just be the hottest MuchMusic has ever put on and we can't wait to see it all unfold before our music-loving eyes.

“We have an incredibly diverse list of MMVA nominees this year and we congratulate each of them on their achievements,” said Sheila Sullivan, the show’s executive producer, following the big reveal. “From international superstars to homegrown talent, this year’s list of nominees proves that the MMVAs highlight the best artists from across the country and around the world.”

She sure got that right!
