Britney Spears, Pieces of Me (music video)

Is Britney Spears feeling some pressure to perform at MTV's upcoming Video Music Awards?

Well, the gal definitely has good reason to take to the stage. She's just nabbed a third VMA nomination for Video of the Year for "Piece of Me."

She and Chris Brown lead the VMA noms with three apiece. (Brown must have the magic touch because he's also featured on Jordin Sparks' twice-nominated "No Air.")

Other nominees for Video of the Year include Jonas Brothers (“Burnin' Up”), Chris Brown ("Forever"), Pussycat Dolls ("When I Grow Up") and The Ting Tings (“Shut Up and Let Me Go”).

Spears has never actually won one of the VMA's iconic moon man trophies. Will this be her lucky year?

The awards will be handed out live from Hollywood Sept. 7. Previously announced performers include the Jonas Brothers and Kid Rock.

And if y'all were wondering about the possibility of Spears running into her ex, MTV golden boy Justin Timberlake, at the show, you can stop now. J.T. will be in New York that night hosting a fashion show for his William Rast clothing collection.
