Usher to Open MTV Video Music Awards


Usher will celebrate the 20th anniversary of his self-titled debut with a performance at the MTV Video Music Awards next month.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Grammy winner will open the 31st annual ceremony, which will air live on August 24 from the Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

Usher previously graced the VMA stage in 2010, performing a medley of “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” and “OMG.”

Just last month, he performed a retrospective of hits along with “Good Kisser” at the 2014 BET Awards.

Ariana Grande will also hit the VMA stage to perform her Zedd-produced single “Break Free” along with Australian pop-punk act 5 Seconds of Summer.

Usher is gearing up for the release of his eighth album. Earlier this week, he debuted his Pharrell-produced single “She Came to Give It to You” featuring Nicki Minaj.

    Usher is going to kill it, he’ll probably do the joint with Nicki. The line-up will probably look like Usher, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Nicki, Iggy, Wayne (hopefully with Drake), Pharell, John Legend, Maybe Chris Brown, Jason Derulo, and a bunch of other pop/rock artists we don’t know or care about.
