Rihanna is back for another performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, along with Pink, Paramore and T.I., who will be making his first appearance at a major awards show since his arrest right before an awards ceremony last year.

After delivering one of the worst performances in the history of the MTV Video Music Awards, Britney Spears has a chance to be crowned this year as the absolute best.

The rebounding pop queen is nominated for video of the year for ''Piece of Me,'' a clip that had fun with her reputation as a tabloid queen. Other nominees included the Jonas Brothers for ''Burnin Up,'' Chris Brown for ''Forever,'' the Pussycat Dolls for ''When I Grow Up'' and newcomers The Ting Tings for ''Shut Up and Let Me Go.''

Other nominees announced today -- Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Slipknot, Linkin Park and Foo Fighters -- were in the category of best rock video.
