Last month, MTV announced all the nominees for the upcoming 2018 VMAs, with names like Drake, Dua Lipa, Nicki Minaj, The Carters and more present on the list. Now, MTV has also announced who will be performing at the anticipated gala. As of now, Ariana Grande will be performing her hit “God is a Woman” off her upcoming album Sweetner, as well as Shawn Mendes who will be singing the heartfelt “In My Blood.” Jennifer Lopez, who will be receiving the honorable Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, will also be taking the VMA stage for the first time since 2001, as well as Logic who will be joined by One Republic’s Ryan Tedder.
So far, these acts have been confirmed by MTV, but we’re sure that the gala will hold a few surprises – and hopefully more performances. The VMAs are set to air on August 20, so make sure that you’re prepared by checking this year’s nominees.
