“#VMAs 2020: Lady Gaga joins performers lineup”
August 13, 2020 | 3:02pm
Lady Gaga is the latest addition to the growing list of performers for the annual extravaganza, the singer announced on social media on Thursday.
The event, hosted this year by Keke Palmer, is already stacked with a wicked lineup, including The Weeknd, K-pop stars BTS, Doja Cat, J Balvin, Maluma and Roddy Ricch. It was previously revealed that BTS, who are also among this year’s nominees, will perform their new English-only single “Dynamite” at the VMAs, which marks their first appearance on the show.
Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande are both the top nominees with nine nods each, including for the top video of the year prize. The dynamic duo got wet and wild in the music video for their collaboration on “Rain on Me,” a single from 34-year-old Gaga’s latest album, “Chromatica.” There’s no word yet on what Gaga will perform, but her album was a pumping dance party with throbbing beats and liberating spins timed perfectly for the COVID-19 lockdown.
The show also will have timely, new coronavirus-era categories for best new music video from home and best quarantine performance. It was originally supposed to take place at Barclays Center on Aug. 30 but will instead feature performances staged at various NYC locations due to the pandemic.
Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion and Harry Styles are also among this year’s nominees.
The MTV VMAs will air live Aug. 30 at 8 p.m. ET on MTV.
