Brace yourselves — the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards is just hours away and this year’s show is going to be big.
The network has called in an all-star team of performers and presenters to take the stage between awards, which will be handed out to the best of the best in Hollywood. According to a report from People magazine, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj have been pegged for a duet. The pair will team up on the former Nickelodeon star’s newest single, “Side to Side.” The publication reports that Grande, 23, will “share [her] voice like it’s never been heard before” — which is major considering her range.
MTV is pulling out all the stops when it comes to presenters at the 2016 VMAs as well. Kim Kardashian West, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Ansel Elgort, Alicia Keys, Fifth Harmony, Jaden Smith, Tove Lo, Rita Ora and more have been hand selected to present winners with their moonmen on Sunday, Aug. 28. The show, which will take place in New York City for the first time since 2013, will air live from Madison Square Garden in Manhattan.
Other performers expected to take the stage during the VMAs include Nick Jonas, Future, Britney Spears and Rihanna. In addition to having been asked to sing during the show, the “Needed You” songstress has been revealed as the recipient of this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award — a lifetime achievement award. Previous winners include Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Kanye West and more.
