Published: Wednesday 18th Aug 2021 by Sam

The MTV Video Music Awards return on September 12 and, with the countdown on, the first names set to rock the stage have been unveiled.

Full story below…

Moments ago, organizers for the extravaganza – which takes place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn – announced that Lil Nas X, Camila Cabello, Lorde, Olivia Rodrigo, and Machine Gun Kelly will all be performing at the VMAs 2021.

The slots serve as major looks for each act, given all are in the midst of heavy promotion for their latest releases.

Indeed, Lil Nas is riding high off the success ofIndustry Baby’ and is gearing up for the release of his debut album ‘Montero’; Cabello is looking to ignite new single ‘Don’t Go Yet,’; Lorde just dropped new music, as has MGK, and Ms. Rodrigo is staging quite the takeover.


A solid list of names thus far.

We’re buzzed for who’s to come. There are a few additions we’d love to see take audiences to the ‘Wild Side’ live. But time will tell, ay.


Justin Bieber and Megan Thee Stallion lead the nominations for the VMAs 2021.

Fans can vote for their faves across 14 gender-neutral categories by visiting

The VMAs 2021 air Sunday September 12 at 8PM ET/PT across 180 countries worldwide.

    • Dc August 18, 2021

      Stfu you think this is all the performances announced dumb ass

      • Keeping it real 💯💯 August 18, 2021

        Watch and see the facts. Nobody checking for wild side. They moved on to rumors which is already doing better than wild side 😂😂

  2. UHoesFunny August 18, 2021

    Notice they didn’t say “smash hit” about CaBloata’s single 😂😂😂 becuz it’s faaaaar from it. This will be comedy in itself. I can’t wait to see her perform after Normani and fall under pressure 💀 her dance moves are very lackluster and her vocals were very shaky last performance. Good luck chiii

    • Farrahs Luggage August 18, 2021

      I’m sure she’ll do a remix with a male feature. It’s the only way she gets a hit

    • Clarks0o00ñ August 18, 2021

      Normani will be forced to switch her mic on and sing , I cant wait for the disaster.
      No camila or dinah, or ally, or lauren to hide behind.

      U better start preparing the excuses u will make for normani when she’s caught lip syncing ,AGAIN.
      We haven’t forgotten the motivation performance when she was lip syncing like a drag queen on rupaul’s drag race

      Camila sabotaged her mic
      Mtv and Camila are working together to sabotage normani


      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 August 18, 2021

        They don’t even need to start preparing the excuses as they just spill out of their mouths like verbal diarrhoea

      • BUZZ OFF August 20, 2021

        😂 😂.. They all the time making excuses for her… As if many of us didn’t attend to a 5th Harmony live Tour.. 😂..
        While all the other girls going UP on Key
        She whispering down on her verse, can’t hardly hear her .. 😂.. They really fought with you and say that she didn’t Lip that MOTIVATION track? 😂 the delusion

  3. Bshsjsb August 18, 2021

    They really want this power bottom at every award show knowing he has no talent and no stage presence.

  4. Dc August 18, 2021

    Camilla better debut her new single cause this one will be out hot 100 by then 🤣🤣😢😢😢😢😢😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  5. Dc August 18, 2021

    You know meg basic overrated ass will perform and use cardi shine to go collect all the awards for wap sad Cardi can’t even celebrate wap now she pregnant smh

  6. Farrahs Luggage August 18, 2021

    So this years them is a comedy show? These all sound like bathroom breaks, not performers

    • Clarks0o00ñ August 18, 2021

      Everybody announced have more achievements than f*******.
      Stop setting that ugly chìmp u stan up.

      Wild side charted in only 4 countries overseas.
      This is a cardi feature.

      • Gag August 18, 2021

        no offense but I’m starting to think you may be autistic? Clarkson..o my way to explain how passionate you are about Normani’s streaming numbers, chart numbers how she dances, how she looks since what ? 2017? I just can’t come up with any other explanation

  7. Shayla Queen™ 👑 August 18, 2021

    Yaaaaas for Camila and Lil Nas. I just started to LOVE Industry Baby!

  8. Farrahs Luggage August 18, 2021

    Also why choose that photo of Camila? She looks like she’s strong at Olivia in jealousy over how much prettier Olivia is 😩🤣😭😂

    • Riribadgal August 18, 2021

      You’re hallucinating. No one really thinks like that way so you’re just making that in your mind. You need to get a job and stop relying on food stamps, unemployment and EBT. Lol

  9. Liam August 18, 2021

    What the hell is wrong with Normani team she had a top 20 hit and this platform would have been a great opportunity to plug in the single 😐 I want her to win but she needs a better team

    • Farrahs Luggage August 18, 2021

      They only announced a handful of performers. This ain’t the entire list 🙄 Reading is fundamental

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 August 18, 2021

        Don’t always be such a rude cüntt

      • Farrahs Luggage August 18, 2021

        That’s your job. You’re the Queef of TGJ. And you stan the Flop of Pop. Congratulations

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 August 18, 2021

        2 #1s and 2 platinum albums is hardly a flop, hunnie. Let me know when Normani can at least score a top ten or release an album.

      • Farrahs Luggage August 18, 2021

        Let’s see how this third album performs. She’s in her Meghan Trainor “treat myself” era 😂😂😂😂

  10. G.E.M.I.N.I. August 18, 2021

    Chile, yall will turn any post into a gang up on Normani party. At this point it’s ridiculous and giving HATERATION!
    No one has given any real reason as to why they hate her. It’s always, she’s a flop, who does she think she is, and of course the comments calling her m***** or talking about her dark skin.
    It’s called BULLYING. Yall doing the same stuff to her, that caused so many other people to commit S.U.I.C.I.D.E. – All for some damn laughs and likes..
    It’s disgusting. Obviously you all feel threatened by her. IDK why, it’s not like yall even on her level. You just don’t want her to be better than your fave.. It’s so immature.

    • Clarks0o00ñ August 18, 2021

      U better take ur silly àss back to Twitter.

      Stop emotionally blackmailing people into supporting f*******.

      Normani camt sing that’s why her career hasnt still taken of.
      It has nothing to do with her colour.
      Shes just boring.
      Boring voice, boring songs, boring personality.
      She doesnt have IT factor

      She’s also overhyped for someone who cant even hold a note.

      Nobody is threatened by her.
      She is not a threat to anyone.
      Everybody has seen what she is about and they are not impressed or interested.

      Even her dance skills are MEH.
      She over dances. She uses too much force.

      Normani has no real fans.
      Many people are supporting her because they want to see a dark skin girl win, that’s all.

      • G.E.M.I.N.I. August 18, 2021

        “Normani camt sing that’s why her career hasnt still taken of.
        It has nothing to do with her colour.Shes just boring.Boring voice, boring songs, boring personality.She doesnt have IT factor”

        So many girls can’t sing and are having great careers. Yall stan all of those Billie Eillish, Lorde, Selena Gomez, Olivia Rodrigo, that CANNOT sing. so please use another excuse.

        You ever notice how all the hate on this blog is only directed towards the black women? But this is an urban blog ?
        That Grape Juice ? Such a disrespectful stereotype.
        Meanwhile yall hyping up all the white women, Gaga/Camilla etc.
        This blog should be called “Milk”

      • Clarks0o00ñ August 18, 2021

        Olivia rodrigo, Selena Gomez, billie ellish etc, even rihanna are not strong vocalists, but they have bops.

        They understand music.
        They know how to make good songs.
        Normani doesn’t have bops.
        She doesn’t have an ear for a hit.

        Selena Gomez-
        love u like a love song
        Come and get it
        Good to u
        It ain’t me

        These are bops from Selena. they are good songs.
        Billie has bops also
        Ocean eyes
        When the party is over
        Happier than ever
        Bad guy
        You should see me in the crown

        I dont care about Olivia rodrigo but good for u is a bop.

        Nobody hates black women.
        Everybody gets dragged accordingly whether u are white, black or latino.
        It’s not that serious.

        If normani releases bops like checklist, her career will blow up. But instead shes more interested in creating “moments” and “cultural resets” .
        Singing motivation, a generic ariana grande reject. Smh

      • G.E.M.I.N.I. August 18, 2021

        Blah blah blah

        Im tired of you and these essays. Now you’re saying if she had more songs like “Checklist” her career would’ve blown up. That’s b.s. because you trashed her when “Checklist/Slow Down” came out too.

        There was nothing POSITIVE you have ever said about that woman.

      • Clarks0o00ñ August 18, 2021

        Gurl, u can cry all u like but normani ain’t it.

        Watch the video for wide side,she looks sad and dead behind the eyes.

        “because you trashed her when “Checklist/Slow Down” came out too.”

        Checklist was released back in 2019
        I didnt even know this blog back in 2019.
        Not u lying against me. Lol

        U normani stans ate always sick in the head.
        Its mental illness at this point.
        I hope u dont suffer a mental breakdown when normani doesnt happened

      • Gag August 18, 2021

        Clarkson you’re a liar you’ve been doggin Normani this blog since like 2018 and you Used different user names

      • Clarks0o00ñ August 19, 2021

        Not tall, lying against me
        I started coming on this blog when senorita hit number one.

        I didnt even know who normani was.

      • G.E.M.I.N.I. August 19, 2021

        How you a Camila fan, but didn’t know Normani? She been in the group since day-1. You know her very well. But the shade is cute. It was the fans like you in the first place that created the tension in the group.

        Just admit it and stop trying to justify your racist remarks (calling her m.nkey). You don’t like her because you like Camila more. And because you like her more, anyone you see as a threat you have to take down.

        Have a nice day!

  11. UHoesFunny August 18, 2021

    Hopefully she doesn’t use “blackface” again for this performance. Y’all kno the btch can’t help herself lmaoo. Pure homegrown racist 💀 she’s needs something to rely on to make up for her weak dance moves and mediocre vocals. Ariana is gonna clown her on the Voice 😂😂😂 she’s already been BLOCKED by most of the main girls. Let the good times roll hunni 🚗💨

  12. Mommy Dearest August 18, 2021

    Those are just the first wave of performers announced.

    The full list is:
    Billie Eilish, BTS, Camila Cabello, Doja Cat, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Jack Harlow, Justin Bieber, Lil Nas X, Lizzo, Lorde, Machine Gun Kelly, Megan Thee Stallion, Normani, Olivia Rodrigo, The Kid Laroi, The Weekend, and Silk Sonic.

    You all need to relax and stop turning everything into a fight. It’s okay to like different people.

  13. J August 18, 2021

    Imma have to catch the highlights

  14. Le le August 18, 2021

    Lmaoo ratmila CANNOT DANCE OR sing!! 🤣🤣🤣

    Stiff as a racist board. Two left feet. Ugly no rhythm. Sounds like a cat getting strangled to death

    Lmaooo this will be a really good laugh 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Riribadgal August 18, 2021

      Damn you were just describing yourself and Normani foe. Stop deflecting.

      • Le le August 18, 2021

        Lmao. Hunny.. nobody here’s deflecting. We all know it’s definitely true. Even your new spam account knows 🤣

  15. Paulo August 18, 2021

    Curious to see if Olivia the new it girl can put on a good show. Anticipating LNX. Lorde is a great recording artist but her live performances are boring. The rest is stale garbage

  16. Brandy Norwood stan August 19, 2021

    Lol that skankmila looks like hyena in that pic no lie 🤭🥴😂😭
