Pharrell Williams, Macklemore, A$AP Rocky & More to Perform at 2015 MTV Video Music Awards
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards lineup proves to be a star-studded affair as Pharrell Williams, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Tori Kelly and A$AP Rocky will take the stage this year. The Weeknd is also slated to perform his new hit, "Can't Feel My Face," for the first time live.
MTV has been keeping the performers list a secret but they let the cat out of the bag via Twitter on Tuesday evening (Aug. 25). While all of these artists are talented and successful, some haven't released much new music in 2015 compared to others. But that doesn't mean we're not excited for what's to come when they hit that stage.
Pharrell, who released his G I R L album last year, just put out a song with Puff Daddy called "Finna Get Loose." The rock band Twenty One Pilots will join A$AP Rocky, who will likely perform a track from his sophomore LP At. Long. Last. ASAP. Tori Kelly's single "Nobody Love" is making headway on the charts and the duo of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have two songs out this year, "Growing Up (Sloane's Song)" and "Downtown."
Pop star Demi Lovato will also showcase her vocal chops in front of the crowd, plus there are two performers yet to be revealed.
Kanye West is confirmed to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and may take the stage like Beyonce and Justin Timberlake did before him at VMAs shows past. With Miley Cyrus hosting the award show this year, it certainly won't be boring.
Fans can catch the big night of entertainment on Sunday (Aug. 30) at 9 p.m. EST/PST.
