VMAs 2016: Nick Jonas, Ty Dolla $ign to perform
The number of artists performing at the 2016 MTV VMAs has grown by two.
MTV announced Wednesday Nick Jonas will take the stage at Madison Square Garden during the live ceremony. Jonas will be joined by rapper Ty Dolla $ign, who previously worked on the former’s most recent LP. While details of their performance have not been revealed, fans can assume the pair will sing “Bacon,” their collaborative track from Jonas’ Last Year Was Complicated.
Britney Spears will also hit the VMAs stage (alongside G-Eazy) for her first performance at the annual awards show since opening the event with “Gimme More” in 2007. Rihanna, this year’s Video Vanguard Award recipient, is set to perform as well. Additional performances have yet to be announced.
The 2016 MTV VMAs air Sunday, Aug. 28 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
