Lady Gaga, Marilyn Manson and Bjork have picked up nominations at the second O Music Awards.
Although some categories remain from the inaugural awards - which took place in April - the ceremony, which celebrates artists' use of the internet and online media to reach their fans, five new categories have been added, submitted by fans.
These include the Oops! I Did It Online award - where celebrities who have shared a little too much with the world are against each other - Best Artist with a Cameraphone, Best Web Born Artist, Best Vintage Viral Video and Best Lyrics Video.
Online fan armies will also battle it out against each other, with Tokio Hotel's 'Aliens', taking on Lady Gaga's 'Little Monsters', Adam Lambert's 'Glamberts, Justin Bieber's 'Beliebers', Insane Clown Posse's 'Juggalos', Iron Maiden's 'Troopers', Demi Lovato's 'Lovatics', Taylor Swift's 'Taylor Nation', Nicki Minaj's 'Barbiez' and Lil Wayne's Team Weezy.
Meanwhile the Digital Genius Award will see Bjork pitted against Chris Milk, Wayne Coyne of Flaming Lips, Girl Talk and Devo.
The O Music Awards will be streamed live on the internet at the awards' website, as well as MTV.com, VH1.com, CMT.com, LogoTV.com and MTVHive.com. Fans can vote for who should win the awards at OMUsicAwards.com.
