MTV O Music Awards 2: Check Out The OMA Nominees And VOTE!

Halloween is so overrated. There's the makeup and the hair and the costumes that never fit. And then you have to keep up with/watch after your friends who have inevitably had one too many Spooky Sangrias... Forget it! Watch the O Music Awards instead! The OMAs are Oct. 31, and this time they feature a slew of new categories, and all of your favorite artists are up for awards.

"But," you ask, "Didn't MTV just do this earlier this year?" Sure. But SHOW ME THE LAW says we can't have the OMAs part 2 in the same year! And besides, 3 million of you cast your votes online last time, so it sounds like you're just as excited as we are!

This time we've expanded the OMAs to include a bunch of new genres and have added new categories to a few originals, like Fan Army FTW and Best Tweet. There are five new user-generated categories, including Oops! I Did It Online (biggest over-sharing celebs) and Best Artist with a Cameraphone (self-explanatory). And once again, you can vote for your favorites right now, including nominee leaders Tyler, the Creator, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.

Or... we could just let Demi Lovato explain WTF the OMAs are:
