Taylor Swift has been confirmed as a performer at this year’s MTV VMAs.
She will be returning to the stage for the first time since her 2015 performance of ‘Bad Blood’, whilst this year will also mark 10 years since she first performed at the awards ceremony.
Not only will Taylor be performing at the ceremony, but she also looks set to pick up some awards as she is nominated for 10 VMAs, tying for the most nominations this year. She is nominated in categories including Video of the Year and Song of the Year.
This marks the most nominations that Taylor has received in one year, tying with 2015 where she also received 10 nominations for ‘Blank Space’ and ‘Bad Blood’. Whilst ‘Bad Blood’ is her most VMA nominated song/video to date (receiving eight in 2015), she has received seven this year for ‘You Need To Calm Down’.
Over the past decade, Taylor has won seven VMAs in total, including three Best Female Video awards in addition to the coveted Video of the Year award.
Taylor’s performance will mark her first major televised performance following the release of her highly anticipated album Lover, which is set to drop on August 23. The album includes the previously released ‘ME!’, ‘You Need To Calm Down’ and ‘The Archer’.
