Fans threaten boycott as Justin Bieber & One Direction’s Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Liam Payne & Niall Horan face MTV VMA 2013 snub

one direction

One Direction fans are not a happy bunch this week after it was revealed that their favourite boyband has not been nominated in any category at this year’s MTV VMAs.

MTV confirmed their nominations yesterday, July 17, 2013 and the star studded award ceremony is set to take place on August 25 at Barclays Center in New York City, but as things stand Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Niall Horan stand no chance of walking away with a gong.

The 1D videos that were eligible for nomination were for singles “Live While We’re Young,” “Little Things” and “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks),” however none of the three were named in any category and fellow teen idol Justin Bieber was also missing from the list.

Fans around the world have threatened to boycott the ceremony when it airs on TV later this summer, though some did concede that they would tune in if their idols turned up to perform on the night.

There was much ranting and upset online and one fan tweeted:

“Haha what?! One Direction & Bieber weren’t even nominated for a VMA?? Lol MTV you are messing w/ the wrong fanbases like wat r u doing??”

Another posted:

“Oh well 1D & Justin Bieber haven’t been nominated for the VMA’s! Gonna be losing viewers MTV!”

A third said:

“Justin and One Direction aren’t nominated for VMA’s, well good luck to MTV they are gonna lose so many viewers this time..”

“one direction and justin bieber aren’t nominated for vma”

“good luck with viewers mtv you’ve not got two of the most famous artists there”

one direction

Other nominees include taylor Swift, Macklemore, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, Pink, Demi Lovato, Fun and Miley Cyrus.

The folks at MTV may have made a bit of a mistake, as there are few fanbases as big as the Directioners and Beliebers online currently.

Today 1D released the third teaser for their new single ‘Best Song Ever’ which featured Harry rocking the geek chic and within an hour of the clip appearing on Youtube, #BestSongEverTrailer became a Top 10 worldwide trending topic on Twitter.

      You guys are so dumb. Guy spits on fans, has no reapect for the people who made him rich and on top of that he’s late for his shows that dumb idiots pay money for. Shamir on him and shame on you guys that keep giving him your money. Hey maybe he’s spit in your face and you’ll be happy. MTV needs to go back to what it used to be. Props to them for not nominating that crap face.

    OMG!!! How could they not nominate ONE DIRECTION ! So depressing MTV !!! Every year I am excited for this , but now , NOT AT ALL

  3. Linda says:

    Miley Cyrus and Dimi Lovato over Justin Bieber and One Direction? That is a deliberate snub. I hope everyone boycotts MTV. MTV just can’t stomach their success. I love Dimi but that music that she and Miley puts out sucks. I’m sorry. MTV is as crooked as the IRS in the US,

  4. Jasmine says:

    How could they not include them?! Oh well.. their loss..

  5. Nikky says:

    Elvis, the Beatles and Nirvana were all also snubbed by ‘the system’. If 1D and JB are lumped in the same category then we will consider it a privilege to be part of a legacy.

    just his cause they didn’t get nominated this year means its the end of the world. I love both and i really could care less if they did or didn’t one less award they don’t have isn’t going to effect them both get nominated at everything. I actually like the nominees this year lets go JT!! And i doubt MTV is loosing viewers cause they’re is so many people who are gonna watch it.

  7. Olivia says:

    Well looks like they’re going to be losing heaps of views. What do they think they’re doing not nominating 1D!!!!!!!!!!! They are retarded!!!

  8. forgiveness says:

    well now i know which award show i won’t be watching, thanks MTV

  9. Hi says:

    I am not watching now seriously Drake got nominated and not one direction. That is stupid.

  10. Nina says:

    Guys just calm down. I love 1D and Justin both but it’s not the end of the world. You have to admit there have been videos WAY better than the boys videos. Doesn’t mean they’re not awesome, just means they haven’t been in the industry that long. We’re not gonna stop being fans just because of some random award show. I don’t know about you guys but, I like other artisits besides the boys sooo…Ill be watching.

  11. Chloe says:

    MTV is retarded!!! Their gonna be losing tons of views.

    Why are you guys surprised? MTV rarely plays music vids anymore and when they do play them I never see 1D videos. The first time I did see one was about a year ago because MTV was plugging their awards show and they may have played a few 1D videos a week before the actual awards show. Their videos are NEVER on VH1 Top 20 Countdown. NEVER. I can safely say NEVER because I record and watch (fast forward) it every single weekend. I feel MTV (and a lot of music critics)does not value 1D as a music group.

  13. Olivia says:

    Ummm so why would MTV do that do they know how popular one direction and Justin bieber are they get like tons of views on YouTube hello and most of the viewers for the vmas are directioners and Belibers I think MTV is going to regret that choice just saying
