The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards are filled to the brim with incredible performers so brace for impact, because when Katy Perry lands at the VMAs, she’ll have an impressive line-up of stars taking the stage alongside her. Perry, who is hosting this year’s VMAs, will perform at the star-studded show, alongside (*drumroll please*) Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, Fifth Harmony, Lorde, The Weeknd, Thirty Seconds to Mars and Miley Cyrus.
Kendrick Lamar has received eight nominations at this year’s VMAs for his video “Humble”. Katy Perry and The Weeknd are tied for five nominations each. Building on the critical acclaim of the non-gendered categories at the 2017 “MTV Movie & TV Awards,” the network also announced the former “Best Female Video” and “Best Male Video” categories have been combined for “Artist of the Year.” Additionally, “Best Fight Against the System” has been added to celebrate videos that inspire viewers to stand up and fight injustice.
The MTV Video Music Awards will premiere live on MTV Asia on August 28: Pre-Show (6am WIB, 7am MY/SG/PH) and Award Show (7am WIB, 8am MY/SG/PH). The repeat telecast airs on the same day: Pre-Show (6pm WIB, 7pm MY/SG/PH) and Award Show (7pm WIB, 8pm MY/SG/PH).
