Sunday’s 2017 VMAs will feature more than a dozen must-see performances. Gossip Cop has the scoop on all the artists performing at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards below.

In addition to serving as the night’s host, Katy Perry will also take the stage to perform a medley. It will mark her first VMAs performance since she fiercely sang “Roar” at the 2013 ceremony. The evening will also be a return for Miley Cyrus. The pop star will sing her new single “Younger Now” (also the title of her upcoming album), two years after she hosted the show herself. As fans are likely to recall, she ended the 2015 broadcast by announcing her new album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz was available online for free.

Kendrick Lamar, who earned the most VMAs nominations this year with eight nods, will open the star-studded ceremony, MTV announced on Saturday. Kyle and Post Malone are also slated to represent the worlds of hip-hop, rap and R&B on stage. In addition, Gucci Mane is collaborating with Fifth Harmony (pictured above) for a performance of “Down.” Notably, this marks the first time the group is ever performing at the MTV Video Music Awards.

In a more unlikely team-up, DNCE and Rod Stewart will unveil a new version of “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” Demi Lovato is bringing “Sorry Not Sorry” to the ceremony, and Shawn Mendes is likely taking on “There’s Nothing Holdin Me’ Back.” Lorde, Ed Sheeran, Alessia Cara, 30 Seconds To Mars and Julia Michaels are all on the performance list, too. Khalid and Logic plan to share the stage as well, with the former also performing during the pre-show, which will further feature Cardi B and Bleachers.

And Pink will get some time in the performance spotlight as the 2017 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award honoree. If all that isn’t enough, consider this: Taylor Swift’s new music video for “Look What You Made Me Do” will have its world premiere at some point during the event. Gossip Cop will have full coverage, so be sure to check back on Sunday night. Plus: Click to see the presenters for the 2017 VMAs.
