Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande will open this year's MTV Video Music Awards with a debut performance of their single 'Bang Bang'.
The pop trio are the latest artists to be unveiled for the VMAs, and Jessie can't wait to get on stage because she had to change her performances at the 2011 ceremony - at which she was named VMA House Artist - due to her having a broken foot.
She said: "When I was the VMA House Artist in 2011 I had a broken foot and I sat on the side stage dreaming about being on that main stage. So when I say that this performance is a dream come true for me, I truly mean it. And to be able to share this moment with superstars like Ariana and Nicki, it's going to be such an amazing night!"
Other confirmed performers for the VMAs include Beyoncé, Usher, Five Seconds of Summer, Maroon 5, Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith.
Presenters already announced for the awards show include Gwen Stefani, Kim Kardashian West, Demi Lovato, Lorde, Taylor Schilling, Laverne Cox, Nina Dobrev, Jason Derulo and Trey Songz.
The event takes place this Sunday (24.08.14) at The Forum in Inglewood, California, and it will air on MTV UK on August 25 at 9pm.
Beyoncé has the most nominations at the VMAs with nods in eight categories including Video of the Year for 'Drunk In Love', her collaboration with husband Jay Z.
