The 2023 MTV VMAs have revealed that Olivia Rodrigo will perform.

The artist, whose second album, “Guts,” was released today (September 8), will perform on September 12 at the festival alongside Mneskin, Doja Cat, and others.

Following her performance of “Good 4 U” in 2021, Rodrigo will make her second appearance at the VMAs for the performance.

For her single “Vampire,” she is nominated for six awards at the gala. She is nominated for Best Pop, Best Pop Video, Best Cinematography, and Best Editing.

Taylor Swift, Doja Cat, and SZA are at the top of the list of nominees for the 2023 VMAs, which was announced last month.

With eight nominations, Swift is in first place, followed by SZA with six and Doja Cat, Kim Petras, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, and Sam Smith with five each. The complete ensemble of musicians is also vying for this year’s Video Of The Year title.

The Video Vanguard Award, which Nicki Minaj received in 2022, will be given to Shakira at the 2023 VMAs; previous winners include Madonna, Janet Jackson, LL Cool J, Jennifer Lopez, and Missy Elliott.

Diddy will perform at the event and accept the Global Icon Award.

‘Guts’ doesn’t simply feel transitional in a musical sense,’ the NME said in a review of Rodrigo’s most recent album. The fact that Rodrigo just revealed in a statement that she felt like she aged “10 years” between the ages of 18 and 20 lends weight to this milestone, which signals the end of her adolescent years.

“Here, she offers blunt self-analysis while reflecting on wider cultural ideas of performance and swallowing anger in order to comply with the wants and needs of others. It works as a display of real power, range and versatility – all of which Rodrigo possesses in abundance.”
