The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards will take place on Sun, Aug. 27 and one of the artists that will take to the stage is Kendrick Lamar.
This announcement marks just another milestone for Kendrick whose album DAMN. was the best-selling album of 2017 as of about a month ago.
Besides this, Kendrick was nominated for Artist of the Year. His video for “Humble” earned him nominations for Best Art Direction, Best Visual Effects, Best Hip-Hop, Best Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Choreography and Video of the Year in the MTV Video Music Awards.
In the another category, he faces some stiff competition from The Weeknd (“Reminder”), DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller (“Wild Thoughts”), Bruno Mars (“24k Magic”) and Alessia Cara (“Scars to Your Beautiful”). The Weeknd will also perform at the show.
The awards show will be hosted by Katy Perry.
