Who’s performing at the MTV VMAs 2021? See the complete list of artists – New York Post

After last year’s MTV Video Music Awards had to be staged all around the city — with limited or no crowds — due to the pandemic, the party is returning to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center this Sunday (Sept. 12, 8 p.m. EST) with vaccinated (and masked) attendees.

Doja Cat, who is up for five Moon Persons, will be hosting the big night, while a star-studded parade of performers and presenters will be taking the VMAs stage. Although Nicki Minaj and Lorde have dropped out, there will still be no wattage shortage of artists rocking the house that Jay-Z built.

Here are all of the performers to watch at this year’s VMAs.

Ed Sheeran

The singer-songwriter, 30, smoothy returned to his hitmaking ways this summer with “Bad Habits” — from his upcoming album “=” — and is up for video of the year for the song’s clip.
