Inexplicably enigmatic German outfit Tokio Hotel has apparently snagged the first Video Music Awards nomination of its career, with the band’s clip for “Ready, Set, Go!” getting nominated in the Best Pop Video category. This victory-before-the-victory was no doubt assisted by the fact that Internet fan voting helped determine said division’s picks, what with Tokio Hotel fans rivaling only Jonas Brothers diehards in the current pantheon of “bands who have crazed, computer-equipped teen girl squads as their fanbases.” And hey, given that the Jonas Brothers have already been announced as a performer on the Sept. 7 broadcast, and that MTV–no stranger to the fans of those two bands waging war on behalf of their beloved musicians–wants the broadcast to make a Britney-sized ratings splash again this year, I suspect this is all going to lead up to some sort of wresting match. Or at least a hairdo-off of some kind. The “Ready, Set, Go!” clip is after the jump, just so you all know what we’ll be getting into a month from now.
