So, which musicians had your phone buzzing the most? Beyoncé led the pack with a whopping eight nominations, while Iggy Azalea and Eminem trailed closely behind her with seven nods each. However, they weren't the only ones to have multiple nominations! Pharrell is certainly feeling "Happy" with the accolades his foot-tapping single received, which included a place in the Video of the Year category.
