Rihanna received eight nominations while Katy Perry and Taylor Swift received five, leading the categories.[3]

This year added new regional categories to compete in the Best Worldwide Act, as well as the Best Look category, due to the presence of the same award at the Italian TRL Awards.[4] Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and One Direction were the biggest winners taking home three awards each.[5][6][7][8]
