Bad Bunny, Lil Nas X, Lizzo Join VMAs Lineup

Okay, VMAs, go off! MTV just announced which performers will join headliner Taylor Swift at this year's ceremony, and most of your summer playlist is covered.

We're looking at: Bad Bunny, Camila Cabello, J Balvin, Lil Nas X, Lizzo, Rosalía and Shawn Mendes, with more artists and surprise presenters to come over the next week. That's an objectively excellent lineup — we've had all those names on regular rotation lately. Let's hope some fun collabs happen on stage, too. Shawn and Camila, perhaps? Or Bad Bunny and Rosalía?

Also confirmed to perform live on the VMAs stage — for the first time in 13 years — is Missy Elliott. She's set to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, which is obviously a long overdue accolade.

The 2019 MTV VMAs will take place in Newark on August 26, hosted by comedian Sebastian Maniscalco. You can check out all the nominees here, and cast a vote for your fave.

PS: Bad Bunny really be hitting up that awards show circuit lately — he's also playing the 2019 Pornhub Awards.
