UPDATE: It’s official: Beyoncé will perform during the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. MTV announced the news in a tweet on Sunday evening, a few hours ahead of the show’s kickoff.

EARLIER: Beyoncé could be taking the stage for a performance at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the star has been in “top secret rehearsals” for the show, airing live from New York’s Madison Square Garden.

MTV did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

If the report proves to be true, it would make Sunday an even bigger night for Beyoncé. She’s nominated in 11 VMAs categories off her visual album Lemonade, including ones for Video of the Year (“Formation”), Best Female Video (“Hold Up”), and Breakthrough Long Form Video (Lemonade), a brand-new category this year.


The 2016 VMAs will kick off at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
