Pop rock band Maroon 5 has been nominated for Best Pop Video for their outstanding music video for "Sugar", the third installment from their platinum-selling fifth studio album, V, which dropped last September and was recently re-issued in May, with the inclusion of "This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like a Motherf***er."
Maroon 5 has been nominated for an MTV Video Music Award 4 times in their career. They were first nominated twice at the 2004 MTV VMA's for Best Group Video and Best New Artist, winning the latter. In 2007, the band was up for Best Group Video for their number 1 hit "Makes Me Wonder", however did not take home the moon-man. They were up for Best Pop Video again in 2012 for their video for "Payphone", featuring rapper Wiz Khalifa, however did not win that either. 2015 sees Maroon 5's first nomination since 2012, being "Sugar" up for Best Pop Video. At last year's MTV Video Music Awards, Maroon 5 rocked their single "Maps" on the outdoor stage live.
