Lady Gaga is set to go head-to-head with Eminem at the MTV Video Music Awards on 12th September 2010.

Billed as one of the biggest nights on the music calendar, the event at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles is set to be remembered for the battle between the new queen of pop and the experienced rap artist.

Both Gaga and Eminem dominate the nominations categories, and speculation is rife as to who will prevail as the biggest artist of 2010.

Gaga leads the nominations tally with 13, including ‘Best Pop Video’, ‘Best Female Video’, and ‘Video of the Year’, whilst Eminem has 8, most notably for ‘Best Male Video’, and ‘Video of the Year’. Gaga has become the first female artist to be nominated for two different videos in the ‘Video of the Year’ category – ‘Bad Romance’ and ‘Telephone’ have both been given the nod.
