MTV VMAs: Organisers reveal first round of 2023 global performers

Paramount Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios have announced Aniita, Demi Lovato, Karol G, Måneskin, and Stray Kids as the first round of performers for this year’s Video Music Awards (VMAs), which is scheduled to take place at New Jersey’s Prudential Center, on Tuesday, September 13.

It will be aired at 1 a.m. WAT, on MTV Channel 130, with scheduled repeats throughout the day.

A global sensation, Anitta is set to return to the storied MTV stage where she will bring Brazilian Funk to viewers by performing a medley of hits from her latest release, Funk Generation: A Favela Love Story.

The performance is arriving on the heels of last year’s fiery debut where she also made history with her first VMAs’ win as the only Brazilian to ever take home an MTV Moon Person. This year, the two-time nominee again looks to continue breaking records with a repeat win in the “Best Latin” category.

Lovato, a 14-time nominee, will make her return to the awards after a six-year absence. She’s set to make the appearance just days before the release of her highly anticipated new album Revamped, which features rock versions of her hit songs.

Nominated in two categories – “Best Pop” and “Video for Good,” for her single Swine, Demi’s many unforgettable VMA moments include her 2015 stage debut with Cool for the Summer, and her 2017 performance of Sorry Not Sorry.

Days after completing her U.S. stadium tour, Colombian global recording artiste, Karol G will bring the “Bichota Season” massive production to life on the VMAs stage for her first-ever appearance at the awards ceremony.

The history-making songstress, who holds the title as the first woman to ever debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart with a Spanish-language album, will break from her first-ever stadium tour to compete for her first VMAs win, after earning three nominations this year including “Artist of the Year,” alongside other music heavyweights like Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj and Shakira, who are nominated in the category.

After Måneskin’s electric double, VMAs and US award show debut last year – and history-making win for “Best Alternative” – the Italian globally dominating rockers will be taking the stage for the second consecutive year after delivering an electrifying performance and winning in the “Best Alternative” category.

Their latest single, Honey (Are You Coming?), is set for release on Friday, September 1, while their latest album Rush! is about to surpass the one billion streams mark.

Global K-Pop mavens, Stray Kids will mark their first-ever VMAs performance with the US broadcast premiere of ‘S-CLASS’, off their latest record-breaking #1 album 5-STAR.
