2022 MTV Video Music Awards are less than two weeks away and the list of performers is getting more impressive by the day. Blackpink, Jack Harlow, Lizzo, and Måneskin are the latest acts to join the ever-growing MTV VMAs lineup.

Lizzo is currently taking the world by storm with her summer anthem “About Damn Time”, but she’s actually expected to perform her new single “2 Be Loved (Am I Ready)” at this award show. Jack Harlow’s inclusion also makes total sense since he’s one of the night’s most nominated artists, but he’s yet to announce his song choice.

K-pop girl band Blackpink will hit the stage with a live rendition of their upcoming single “Pink Venom”, set to be released on August 19. Italian band Måneskin is in the running for the best artist award, and they’re set to perform their latest single “Supermodel”.

The list of performers at this year’s MTV VMAs will also include Anitta, J Balvin, Marshmello x Khalid, Panic! at the Disco, and Kane Brown. Nicki Minaj will hit the stage with the medley of her biggest hits after receiving the honorary Vanguard Award.

The 2022 MTV Video Music Awards are taking place on August 28 in New Jersey’s Prudential Center in Newark.
