MTV Video Music Awards : MTV on Tuesday also announced that Normani, Big Sean, A$AP Ferg, H.E.R. and Ozuna will also perform during the event. Earlier this month MTV had revealed that Taylor Swift, Jonas Brothers, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Lil Nas X, Lizzo and Rosalia will make it an epic night.
According to People, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes will be singing their chart-topping, hit single ‘Señorita,’ for the first time at MTV VMA. While the singers are up for several awards throughout the night for their work on ‘Señorita’, both have individually scored a nomination for the Artist of the Year.
The nominations for the award show came out in July with Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande leading with 10 each, while ‘Bad Boy’ singer Billie Eilish earned a total of nine and Lil Nas X followed closely behind with eight. Korean boy band BTS, which has led a K-pop music wave in the United States and scored three No.1 albums on the Billboard chart in the past year, got just four nods, including three in the newly created K-pop category.
