Usher will be joining Ariana Grande as one of the performers at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards on August 24 along with Australian pop band 5 Seconds of Summer.

Usher is no stranger to the VMAs: He won two of the awards in 2004 for “Yeah!” and has been nominated for 16 total. 5 Seconds of Summer are newer to the MTV scene, though—the group formed in Australia back in 2011 and are just now making their U.S. debut.
