OLIVIA, CAMILA, LIL NAS X, MORE SET FOR VMAS

MTV has announced the first slate of performers for the 2021 VMAs; scheduled to command the stage at Barclays Center on 9/12 are Olivia Rodrigo, Lil Nas X, Camila Cabello, Machine Gun Kelly and Lorde.

Rodrigo's first VMA showing will be only her fourth televised performance ever, following her debut on Fallon and her appearances on SNL and at The BRITs.

Lil Nas X returns to the VMA stage for the first time since 2019, when he performed "Panini." Cabello is set to assay her salsa-inspired single "Don't Go Yet."

MGK will mark his first time on the main show, where he will deliver a live version of "papercuts"; last year he was part of the the pre-show, launching "my ex's best friend" to new heights. 

Also joining the MTV party: Lorde, whose album Solar Power is out Friday, 8/20.

More TBA. Rumors that ViacomCBS Prez Bruce Gillmer is playing the spoons on the pre-show could not be confirmed at press time.
