Has Yahoo tattled on who'll win the MTV Video Music Awards?

September 11, 2010 |  9:31 pm

Yahoo has issued fascinating data that may foretell who'll win the MTV Video Music Awards to be doled out on Sunday night.

Below is a list of nominees ranked according to how often they were searched by Yahoo web browsers during this year's nomination period. That may be significant since MTV VMA winners are chosen based upon their popularity with web voters. With Justin Bieber fever sweeping America, it's logical to assume this list is correct and he's a shoo-in to win best new artist. Lady Gaga is probably a safe bet to win best video of the year for "Bad Romance," but I'm not sure I believe she'll be trounced by Ke$ha for best female and pop videos, as these lists suggest. Tell us what you think by voting in our polls.
