Each of the three musicians reacted to their nominations in their own ways. After discovering that he was nominated for an Artist to Watch, Presented by Taco Bell Moonman for his Colin Tilley-directed “What About Love” video, Mahone tweeted his glee — “JUST FOUND OUT I’M NOMINATED FOR A VMA!!!” He also told MTV News he plans to “throw a party, invite my friends and go crazy!” to celebrate his nomination.

Taylor, for her part, tweeted wryly: “Two VMA nominations!! If you vote and get us one, I promise to keep a firmer grip on the mic this time ;)” She was nominated twice for “I Knew You Were Trouble” (Video of the Year, Best Female Video).
If she and Sheeran win, they plan to team up to celebrate by putting on “loads of bling and pretend[ing] to be rappers,” Sheeran said.
