VMAs Performers 2015


Next to the Grammys, the MTV Video Music Awards are considered music’s biggest night, and a number of top performers will be taking the stage at Sunday’s 2015 VMAs.

Nicki Minaj, who infamously had a wardrobe malfunction while performing at last year’s ceremony, will be opening the show. The rapper is the only one to have their time slot specifically revealed, so fans of Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, and Pharrell will have to stay tuned to the tube. Bieber’s performance will mark the first time he sings his new single “What Do You Mean?” live.

Close friend Tori Kelly will also be hitting the stage, as will The Weeknd, giving the first television performance of “Can’t Feel My Face.” Macklemore, joined as always by Ryan Lewis, is expected to do their new song, “Downtown.” Most surprising may be the collaboration between A$AP Rocky with Twenty One Pilots, though there’s speculation host Miley Cyrus might have her own unexpected musical bit, too.

Of course, there will also be performances before the ceremony officially kicks off. Walk The Moon is slated to perform “Shut Up And Dance” during the pre-show, while Nick Jonas will not only be singing “Levels,” but he’ll also premiere the track’s music video. Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” video will also make its debut. Gossip Cop will have full coverage. TELL US: Which 2015 VMAs performance has you most excited?
