It was a huge year for artists like Taylor Swift who racked up 14 nominations, Sam Smith (13), Iggy Azalea (12), and Meghan Trainor (9). There will be a ton of performances like one from Mariah Carey who just opened her Las Vegas show, Iggy Azalea & Britney Spears will be performing their new single Pretty Girls, Van Halen will take the stage, and plenty more. Taylor Swift is even premiering her new music video for Bad Blood at the star-studded event.
