Britney Spears britvmas200.jpgNEW YORK, New York (X17online) - It looks like MTV will give Britney Spears a chance to redeem herself after last year's disastrous performance during the Video Music Awards. Spears video for "Piece of Me" is nominated for the top prize, video of the year.

The clip mocks her relationship with the tabloids and with the paparazzi, though Britney herself told X17 photographers, whom she invited into her home late last year, that she wasn't fond of the video (click here to read the story):

"I don't like the Piece of Me video," Brit said to our photogs. "The stuff they show of me on TV looks old."

She told X17online she wanted her new clip for "Hot As Ice" to be "something new" and fresh.

The Jonas Brothers are also nominated for video of the year for "Burnin' Up," along with Chris Brown for "Forever," the Pussycat Dolls for "When I Grow Up," and the Ting Tings for "Shut Up and Let Me Go."

This is Spears' third nomination for this years's VMAs -- she was also tapped in the best pop video and best female video categories.

Nominees in other categories include Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Slipknot, Linkin Park, and Foo Fighters for best rock video. Kanye West, Jordin Sparks, Madonna, Rihanna, and Katy Perry are also up for a statue.

Spears appeared in a promo for this year's award show, along with host Russell Brand (click here to see the video).

Performances will include Kid Rock, 'Lil Wayne, and the Jonas Brothers. The show will be held Sept. 7 in Los Angeles.
