The 2013 VMAs are shaping up to be one of the best awards shows ever! MTV has already announced performances from Kanye West, Daft Punk, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry, and today they added another two artists, a new presenter—and another awards category!

For the first time, MTV will have a “Best Song of the Summer” category, and you can only vote via social media. Two of the nominees will be performing, and they won’t come as an enormous surprise: the king and queen of summer, Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus. A third nominee, One Direction, will be presenting.
