VMAs 2020: Lady Gaga joins performers lineup

The 2020 MTV VMAs will be a Little Monsters Ball.

Lady Gaga is the latest addition to the growing list of performers for the annual extravaganza, the singer announced on social media on Thursday.

The event, hosted this year by Keke Palmer, is already stacked with a wicked lineup, including The Weeknd, BTS, Doja Cat, J Balvin, Maluma and Roddy Ricch. It was previously revealed that BTS will debut their English-only single “Dynamite” at the awards show, which marks their own VMAs debut.

Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande are tied for the most nominations, with nine nods each, including for the video of the year prize. The dynamic duo got wet and wild in the music video for their collaboration, “Rain on Me,” a single from 34-year-old Gaga’s latest album, “Chromatica.

There’s no word yet on what Gaga will perform, but her album was a pumping dance party with throbbing beats and liberating spins timed perfectly for the COVID-19 lockdown.

The awards also have new coronavirus-era categories, for best new music video from home and best quarantine performance. The ceremony was supposed to take place at Barclays Center on Aug. 30 but will instead feature performances staged at various NYC locations to comply with pandemic protocols.

Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion and Harry Styles are also among this year’s nominees.

The Video Music Awards will air live Aug. 30 at 8 p.m. on MTV.
