Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, more go toe-to-toe
- Chris Brown (featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes) — "Look at Me Now"
- Nicki Minaj (featuring Drake) — "Moment 4 Life"
- Katy Perry (featuring Kanye West) — "E.T."
- Pitbull (featuring Ne-Yo, Nayer, and Afrojack) — "Give Me Everything"
- Kanye West (featuring Kid Cudi and Rihanna) — "All of the Lights"
There’s no comparing Perry’s “E.T.” and its space-age themes and her get-ups with the other contenders here, although West’s “All of The Lights” has its great heart-pounding intensity going for it. The other clips are perfect fine, though nothing extraordinary. “E.T.” may be better suited for the creative awards than here, since Perry and West don’t really collaborate in the clip. Either way, Kanye is going home with a statue in this category.
Who Should Win: “Katy Perry (featuring Kanye West), “E.T.”
Who Will Win: “Katy Perry (featuring Kanye West), “E.T.”
