The first round of global performers that have been announced are:
The 14x nominee and multi-hyphenated icon returns for her first “VMAs” performance in 6 years. Days before the release of her highly anticipated new album REVAMPED which features rock versions of her hit songs. Demi’s many unforgettable “VMAs” moments include her 2015 stage debut with “Cool for the Summer.” And her 2017 performance of “Sorry Not Sorry.” The award-winning musician, who took home “Best Video with a Message” in 2012, is up for 2x categories: “Best Pop” and “Video for Good.”
Colombian global recording artist, KAROL G will bring ‘Bichota Season’ to life on the “VMAs” stage for her first-ever appearance on MTV’s iconic stage. The history-making songstress, who holds the title as the first woman to ever debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart with a Spanish-language album, will break from her first-ever stadium tour to compete for her first “VMAs” win after earning 3x nominations this year including “Artist of the Year.”
After Måneskin’s electric double “VMAs” and US award show debut last year, and history-making win for “Best Alternative”, the globally dominating rockers set their much-anticipated return to the storied MTV stage. They will be there for the world premiere performance of their forthcoming new single “HONEY (ARE YOU COMING?),” releasing on September 1st. As their latest album RUSH! The group earned four nominations and is on the brink of achieving one billion streams. They have made history by becoming the first Italian act to receive nominations for “Best Rock” for two consecutive years in a major show category.
Global K-Pop mavens, Stray Kids will mark their first-ever “VMAs” performance. They will be giving the US broadcast premiere of “S-CLASS,” off their latest record-breaking #1 album 5-STAR. The group also competes to take home their first MTV Moon Person for “Best K-Pop.” It is the same category which earned them their first “VMAs” nomination in 2022.
