Doja Cat will be hosting the latest season of MTV VMAs, which will be aired on September 12. The rap music artist made this announcement on her social media. In 2020, she took away the Best New Artist Award. This year she has five nominations.
Apart from hosting the show, Doja Cat will also enthrall the audience with her performance. The last season saw the artist performing a medley of “Like That” and “Say So” at the event. The artist has the opportunity to win big this year with five nominations. She has been nominated in the following categories: Artist of the Year, Best Visual Effects, Video of the Year, Best Collaboration, and Best Art Director.
The ceremony will be hosted in Brooklyn eight years after its inception. The last season did not include any live audience due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But this year, the show will bring back a live audience. The award show will be star-studded with incredible performances from some of the biggest names in the music industry. However, the health and safety of the guests and audience will be a crucial priority for the management. The show will be hosted after taking all the necessary precautions.
The award show will feature performances from Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Lil Nas X, Olivia Rodrigo, Twenty One Pilots, Lorde, Machine Gun Kelly, and Foo Fighters will perform at the ceremony. Chloe Bailey will make her solo performance debut at the show. She is all set to perform her new single, “Have Mercy.” The artist is better known as one-half of the sister duo Chloe x Halle. Justin Bieber has earned the highest number of nominations this year in seven categories. Megan Thee Stallion has a total of six nominations to her name.
The unique thing about this year’s MTV VMAs is that they will feature a new Moonperson statue. Artist Kehinde Wiley has redesigned the statue. The new statue will promote diversity and inclusivity. The design will have botanical vines around the figure representing the ethnic histories surrounding Africa. MTV has also collaborated with the 9/11 community for this year’s event. This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The event will invite charitable contributions to honor the families devastated by the gruesome attack.
