Nicki Minaj and DJ Khaled Tapped For MTV’s VMA’s


(AllHipHop News) MTV has announced that Ariana Grande will perform the song “Side to Side” from her album Dangerous Woman along with superstar Nicki Minaj on the VMA stage Sunday night.

In addition, comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will introduce the world to social media influencers @TheShamester and @LizardSheeple, who are slated to share their play-by-play commentary throughout the show.

The duo are to be joined by comedians Jay Pharoah, Nicole Byer, as well as hosts Charlamagne Tha God and Lizzo from MTV’s music show “Wonderland.”

“The VMAs is a show I’ve always wanted to be a part of and I’m a big fan of it,” DJ Khaled told Billboard. “For me to be involved in the pre-show as well as the main show, I’m excited. Put it this way — expect nothing but greatness and also expect the unexpected because when you got Khaled on the bill, ratings go extra high.”

Presenters of the awards include Sean “Diddy” Combs, Alicia Keys, Ansel Elgort, Bebe Rexha, Fifth Harmony, Jaden Smith, Kim Kardashian West, Rita Ora, Shameik Moore and Tove Lo.
