It was previously announced that Camila Cabello, Lil Nas X, Lorde, Machine Gun Kelly and Olivia Rodrigo will also be taking the stage for a sure-to-be unforgettable night.

MGK will perform his new hit single, “Papercuts.” Lorde is expected to sing songs from her latest album, Solar Power, dropping Aug. 20.

Meanwhile, Lil Nas X will “bring yet another genre-defying hit to the VMAs stage,” a press release states, while Rodrigo is set to make her debut. Additional performers will be announced at a later date.
