Chili Peppers, Shakira Spice Up VMAs

The 2006 MTV Video Music Awards are gonna rock. And shake. And, um, disco.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Dani California" and Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie" nabbed a leading seven nominations apiece from the Moon Men-doling award show, including nods for the show's most coveted honor, Video of the Year.

Erstwhile MTV fixture Madonna received four nominations for her leotard-donning performance in "Hung Up," as did the video for "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" from rock newcomers Panic! At the Disco.

Rounding out the most lauded nominees was Christina Aguilera, whose "Ain't No Other Man," the lead single off her forthcoming Back to Basics album, earned four nods.

The top five nominees will all vie for Video of the Year.

In addition to their top nod, the Red Hot Chili Peppers also nabbed nominations for Best Group Video and Best Rock Video along with a host of technical honors.

As for Shakira, the hip-shaking pop star also landed a nomination for Best Female Video, where she'll battle it out with Aguilera, Madonna, last year's winner Kelly Clarkson, nominated this time for "Because of You," and Nelly Furtado, who scored a nod for "Promiscous."

The Latina songbird also scored nominations for Best Dance Video, Best Pop Video and the Viewer's Choice Award.

As for Mrs. Ritchie, her disco-themed dance-floor opus is also up for, fittingly, Best Dance Video, Pop Video and Best Choreography.

Panic! At the Disco, meanwhile, will go toe-to-toe with last year's dominating act, Green Day, in the Best Rock Video and Best Group Video categories. The American Idiot rockers were nominated this year for their heavily eyelined efforts in "Wake Me Up When September Ends."

Panic! will also battle it out in the Best New Artist category, facing such disparate acts as Angels & Airwaves, Avenged Sevenfold, Rihanna, Chris Brown and James Blunt.

Aside from the five main contenders, a score of artists managed to snag multiple nominations this year.

A.F.I., Chris Brown and Gnarls Barkley all nabbed three nominations, while Kanye West, Rihanna and the Pussycat Dolls logged two nods each.

Missing from the nominations was the video for Justin Timberlake's highly anticipated single, "SexyBack," which, having premiered just last week, didn't make the cutoff deadline for the award show.

However, MTV knows how to pander to its audience and the kudosfest will not be without its dose of Timberlake. The FutureSex/LoveSounds singer has been tapped to perform at the ceremony alongside a superstar lineup.

In addition to Timberlake, the Killers, Beyonce, the Raconteurs, Panic! At the Disco, T.I. and Ludacris are all set to perform.

MTV has yet to announce a host for the VMAs, which last year were emceed by Diddy.

The cable net did announce, however, that the voting process would be overhauled this year. For the first time ever, viewers will be able to cast their vote for their music faves in all categories, not just Viewer's Choice, as in years past.
