I know it's really popular but i've never watched it.

Neither have I.  I'm not really sure I can dredge up enough interest to see it though.  I'll have to see if YouTube has it.  I don't get that TV channel, to my knowledge anyway.

Youtube doesn't deserve the hits. Use this:
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xjx63z_my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-episode-1-the-mare-in-the-moon-pilot-part-1-2_shortfilms

There's the first part of the first episode. That channel has all of them. If that episode doesn't grab you, I'd suggest checking out the first episode of season two, which is called "Lesson Zero" (I believe). It kind of showcases the OTHER side of MLP. If you hate both of those, I doubt you'll like any of them.

Edit:  Couldn't last 5 minutes without shutting that godawful pain parade off.  Twilight Sparkle!?  Are you kidding me?  Thanks but no thanks.  Too cutesy and nauseating for me.

Try the season 2 premier.  Has John de Lancie all but reprising the role of Q.

Oh, I didn't notice who I was talking to. There's no point talking to this person, really.

That's just asking to be made into a T-shirt.

Those two songs are good choices. I was hoping it wasn't "Smile Smile Smile". Everybody but me seems to love that song. For me, starting with "my name is _____ and I'm here to say" is a HUGE strike against a song. Also, using "turn that frown upside down" is a huge no-no.

Becoming Popular isn't bad. It's probably one of the better songs lyrically, although I don't really dig the style of music. Find A Pet Song, though, is awesome. The instrumentation is very impressive, and "may the games begin" gives me shivers.


Oh, and season two is now on Netflix, apparently.

EDIT: I guess these nominations are for 2011 only, so the last half of season one and the first half of season two were eligible. That would mean Art of the Dress and At the Gala would be eligible. I think those two are better than the nominated songs. At the Gala is by far my favorite MLP song. It's a great homage to Into the Woods' finale, while surpassing it handily IMO.

This Day Aria will be eligible next year, and I hope it's nominated. Lyrically, it's a bit shaky, but it deserves recognition for the incredibly clever chord structure. When the fake Cadance is singing her verses, the chord structure implies a certain chord will come next, but does something different, which in music is called deceptive cadence. So, yeah. That's awesome.

Smile Smile Smile is actually my favorite pony song, in the sense that it's so freakishly enjoyable that I don't have any sort of quibbles with the how the lyrics are made up. It just cheers me right up to here it, especially when the first chorus starts up.

That said, I'm very glad that May the Best Pet Win got the nomination, as that's a great song. Very well put together, like something out of a real musical. As for Becoming Popular, yeah, At the Gala or (especially) Art of the Dress would've been better options. But most award shows have no memory of anything that happened prior to August of a given year, so those were likely to be forgotten anyway.

Find a pet also gets a boost by being a master race duet. 

Smile isn't at the top of my list, but it was very catchy.  Top 3 songs in s2 would be Find a Pet, This Day Aria, and the Flim and Flam song.  Hearts and Hooves Day song was also great.

I'll admit, I've warmed to it because it is catchy. If a song has lyrics, though, I'm picky about them. If they're there, they should say something, say it well, and it shouldn't be so cliched.
