Australian pop-punkers 5 Seconds Of Summer have just been nominated for the Artist To Watch prize at this year's forthcoming MTV VMAs and they have revealed that it's an 'honour' to be included among some other amazing artists. 

They earned the nomination for their hit single 'She Looks So Perfect' and will go head to head against the likes of Charli XCX, Fifth Harmony, Sam Smith, and Schoolboy Q.  

Heartthrob Luke Hemmings took to his official Twitter page this afternoon (July 17) and revealed his excitement at the band's nomination: "We are nominated for a VMA, so epic. Vote for us if you like :-) artist to watch! Can't wait to play there!"

Calum Hood also shared his feelings on the nod, adding: "What an honour to be playing and to have a nomination at the vmas! Definitely not going to wear pants that day."
