VH1 has finalized the list of categories for the second annual My VH1 Music Awards, to be broadcast Dec. 2 from Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium. As previously reported, the categories were determined by input from fans visiting VH1.com.

Some of the more creative category titles chosen include "Navel Academy," which awards the year's best bellybutton appearance (preliminary nominees include Christina Aguilera, Usher, and Gwen Stefani) and "Is it Hot in Here, Or Is it Just My Video?," the award for the year's sexiest clip (preliminary nominees include Nelly Furtado's "Turn off the Light" and Lenny Kravitz's "Again").

Other fan-created categories include the song-of-the-year-honoring "Damn I Wish I Wrote That!," an award for the best musical pairing titled "There's No I In Team," and the self-explanatory "Your Song Kicked A** But Was Played Too Damn Much."

Awards will also be given out for "Coolest Fan Web Site," "My Favorite Male Artist," "My Favorite Female Artist," "My Favorite Group," "My Favorite Video," "Hottest Live Show," "Best Actor In a Video," "Welcome to the Big Time!," "Must-Have Album," and "Best Kept Secret." Preliminary nominees have been announced for each award, and fans are invited to visit VH1.com through Oct. 24 to vote for final nominees, which will be restricted to five per category.

The event's host, musical guests, and final nominees will be announced in early November, at which point Web site visitors will be asked to vote for their winners in each category. Voting will continue up until the moment each award is presented live on VH1.
