MTV has announced another handful of artists who will perform at the 2019 Video Music Awards. Normani, H.E.R., Ozuna and Big Sean with A$ap Ferg will take the stage on Monday night, August 26. Who are you looking forward to seeing the most? Scroll down to click through our gallery of all the performers for the show, updating as new names are announced.
Normani is a VMA nominee this year for Best R&B Video for “Waves” featuring 6lack. But she has already won multiple VMAs as a member of the girl group Fifth Harmony. They won four times before going on hiatus to pursue solo projects: Artist to Watch for “Miss Movin’ On” (2014), Best Collaboration for “Work from Home” with Ty Dolla $ign and Song of Summer for “All in My Head (Flex)” with Fetty Wap (2016), and Best Pop Video for “Down” featuring Gucci Mane (2017).
H.E.R. is also nominated for Best R&B Video, for “Could’ve Been” featuring Bryson Tiller. She’s also up for Best New Artist and Push Artist of the Year. This continues a great 2019 for the singer-songwriter, which started with two Grammys in February for Best R&B Album for her self-titled compilation and Best R&B Performance for “Best Part.”
Big Sean has two VMAs on his mantel: Best Video with a Social Message for ‘One Man Can Change the World” featuring Kanye West and John Legend (2015), and again in that category for “Light” (2017) when the category was known as Best Fight Against the System. In 2017 that award went to all the artists nominated in a six-way tie to celebrate all fights against the system following the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally that summer that resulted in the murder of protester Heather Heyer by a white supremacist.
Puerto Rican artist Ozuna is a VMA nominee for Best Dance Video this year for “Taki Taki” along with DJ Snake, Selena Gomez and Cardi B. He has also been awarded as Top Latin Artist for the last two years in a row at the Billboard Music Awards. Find out who else is performing at the show in our photo gallery below.
