The 2019 MTV VMAs are here!
Music's wildest awards show is set to bring together music's biggest stars on Monday night at the Prudential Center in New Jersey, just outside of New York City.
With a slew of new updates coming out about the awards show (Miley Cyrus is now set to make her post-split debut by performing her new song, "Slide Away," it was announced on Monday), we're rounding up everything you need to know about the 2019 Video Music Awards.
While the show went hostless last year, comedian Sebastian Maniscalco will host this year's VMAs.
That being said, opening the show will be none other than Taylor Swift, who will continue her media blitz around her new album, "Lover," which was just released on Friday. This will be her first televised performance since dropping the 18-track album, and it's unclear if she plans on performing one of her current singles ("You Need to Calm Down," "ME!" or "Lover") or another track from the collection.
Another performer will be Missy Elliott, who is set to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award in honor of her bevy of iconic music videos over the years.
As mentioned above, it was announced on Monday just hours before the ceremony that Miley Cyrus will also be performing during the show. Her performance of new single "Slide Away," which seemingly details her recent heartbreak, will be her first public appearance since separating from Liam Hemsworth.
Other performers include Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, Normani, Bad Bunny, Jonas Brothers, Lil Nas X, Lizzo, Ozuna and H.E.R.
Swift and Ariana Grande go into the night tied with the most nominations -- 10 each! -- with Billie Eilish's 9 nominations and Lil Nas X's 8 coming close behind them.
The nominees for the night's biggest category, Video of the Year, are as follows: 21 Savage feat. J. Cole ("a lot"), Billie Eilish ("Bad Guy"), Ariana Grande ("thank u next"), Jonas Brothers ("Sucker"), Lil Nas X feat. Billy Ray Cyrus ("Old Town Road (Remix)") and Taylor Swift ("You Need to Calm Down").
Notable presenters at the 2019 MTV VMAs will be John Travolta, Ice-T, Hailee Steinfeld, Keke Palmer and Jonathan Van Ness. U.S. Women's National Soccer Team players and World Cup champs Alex Morgan, Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris will also present.
The 2019 MTV Video Music Awards air on MTV at 8 p.m. EST on Monday, August 26.
