This marks the first time Justin will perform on the VMAs in six years.  He’s up for seven Moon Person trophies, including Video of the Year and Artist of the Year.

As previously reported, the VMAs will be hosted by Doja Cat and will feature performances from Camila Cabello, Chlöe, Kacey Musgraves, Lil Nas X, Machine Gun Kelly, Shawn Mendes, Olivia Rodrigo and Twenty One Pilots.   In addition, Foo Fighters will receive the Global Icon Award and perform on the VMAs for the first time since 2007.
