Where is it: The Forum in Inglewood, California. There will also be some performances in advance of the show, which begins at 8 p.m. ET.

While most awards shows try to keep things prim and proper, MTV's Video Music Awards errs on the side of controversy.

P!nk performs live on stage headlining V Festival 2017 at Weston Park on 20 August in Stafford, England.

Musical performances: Perry is pulling double-duty and will also be performing along with Pink, Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, Lorde, Lamar, Fifth Harmony, The Weeknd, Shawn Mendes, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Khalid, Post Malone, Gucci Mane, Julia Michaels, Logic; and Rod Stewart with DNCE to perform a remade version of Stewart's 1978 hit "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy".
