MTV Announces First Round of Performers for 2022 VMAs

(NEWARK, NJ) -- MTV has announced Anitta, J Balvin, Marshmello x Khalid and Panic! At The Disco as the first round of global superstars set to perform at the 2022 “VMAs” LIVE from New Jersey’s Prudential Center on Sunday, August 28th at 8:00pm.

Anitta - The charismatic global pop sensation is slated to make her “VMAs” main stage debut with a first-time TV  performance of her newest chart-topping single, “Envolver,” which recently earned the Brazilian superstar Guinness Book of World Records certification as the first solo Latin artist to hit #1 at Spotify. Anitta is also up for her first “VMAs” award in the “Best Latin” category, making her the first Brazilian artist to be nominated for a Moon Person.

J Balvin - Colombian global superstar J Balvin is set to make a fiery return to the “VMAs” stage with a TV/world premiere of “Nivel de Perreo” with Ryan Castro, returning for the first time since his epic on-stage collaboration with Bad Bunny for “Que Pretendes” in 2019. The 13x nominee with 5 wins is also looking to take his sixth Moon Person for “Best Latin” (“In Da Getto” with Skrillex), which would crown him as the most awarded Latin artist in “VMAs” history.

Marshmello x Khalid - Together, Marshmello and Khalid are set to take over the iconic MTV stage for a world premiere TV performance of new chart climbing collaboration “Numb.” Marshmello - a 5x “VMAs” nominee - will make his main stage debut this year. Khalid returns to the “VMAs” stage for the first time since his unforgettable 2017 debut with Logic and Alessia Cara for “1-800-273-8255,” where he also took home “Best New Artist.” 

Panic! At The Disco - Panic! At The Disco returns to the “VMAs” stage for the first time since 2018 to world premiere new single “Middle of a Breakup,” from the forthcoming album Viva Las Vengeance. The 9x nominee, who first won in 2006 for “Video of the Year,” also looks to take home a win for “Alternative Video,” their first nomination in this category.
