One Direction on MTV VMAs nominations: "We want to make a moment"

The One Direction heartthrobs recently confirmed that they will perform at the upcoming MTV VMAs in Los Angeles, but they are also in the running for a couple of prizes.

It has now been revealed that the 'One Thing' sensations are nominated in two categories, namely Best New Artist and Best Pop Video for 'What Makes You Beautiful', and member Liam Payne spoke to MTV News about how excited they are to perform and maybe take home a trophy:

"We're really looking forward to the VMAs. It's quite nerve-racking as well, because obviously there's been so many historical moments and stuff that have happened at the VMAs. Now we want to make a moment ourselves, but who knows?"

"I think performing at the VMAs is such a huge occasion. I think it ranks up there with one of the best performances we'll do so far."

A tweet was sent out from the group's official page earlier this afternoon (July 31) that explained to fans how they can vote for the boys to win:

"The boys have been nominated for 2 MTV VMA awards! Best New Artist and Best Pop Video! Woop! But they can only win with the support of the 1DFamily! Make sure you vote here 1DHQ x #1DVMAAwards http://bit.ly/1DVMAs"
