Who is performing at the 2018 VMAs?

Celebrities are known to bring their best to the MTV Video Music Awards … especially when the ceremony takes place in New York City.

On Monday, the VMAs return to the city, more specifically, Radio City Music Hall — the place where it all began in 1984; the place where Madonna performed “Like a Virgin”; where Fiona Apple declared “this world is bull”; and where Kanye West ripped the mic from Taylor Swift.

This year’s event is all about an unexpected Bronx duo: Cardi B and Jennifer Lopez. Cardi B is up for 10 awards, including artist, song and video of the year. J. Lo is taking home the Video Vanguard Award.

What shocker might dominate the 2018 ceremony? We’ll have to wait until 9 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 20, to find out. Until then, here’s a look at who’s performing at the ceremony.
