It's almost time to celebrate all things music video again, as the MTV Video Music Awards kick off tonight in LA (tomorrow Aussie time).
This year's biggest video hits include our very own Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."
Check out Gotye covered by hundreds of people!
They also largely owe their success to going viral online, and spawning so many cover songs we're almost sick of the original! (almost)
Check out who we think might scoop up some of the top awards at the ceremony tonight! Are your favourites nominated?
