Move over, Miley and your foam finger...this year, it's all about Beyonce at the MTV VMAs.

Nominations just came out for the annual awards fest, and Beyonce is on top (no surprise), scoring a whopping 8 nods for her fifth, self-released album.

She's up for Video of the Year for "Drunk in Love" with Jay-Z against Miley's naked "Wrecking Ball" and Pharrell's catchy hit "Happy" and facing off against Lorde and Ariana Grande in the Best Female Category.

We're betting if Queen Bey does perform, she won't need to Twerk to get noticed like Miley last year.
