BEST VIDEO WITH A MESSAGE
Who Should Win: “The Fighter” by Gym Class Heroes feat. Ryan Tedder; directed by Marc Klasfeld & Nico Sabenorio
The video chronicles the life of John Orozco, American gymnast and 2012 Visa National Champion. Even though he didn’t place at the 2012 London Olympics, we love a good underdog story, especially when it’s matched with Travie McCoy’s inspiring rhymes and Ryan Tedder’s powerful vocals.

Who Will Win: “Dark Side” by Kelly Clarkson; directed by Shane Drake — or — “How To Love” by Lil Wayne; directed by Chris Robinson
It’s difficult to choose the winner of this category because every song is a hardcore inspirational anthem. However, few can top the original American Idol, and it’s hard to beat Weezy’s attitude with a tragic story. Check out the videos below and bring some tissues.
