Announcing the news moments ago, Beyonce’s appearance will see her join an already impressive line-up, which includes performances from Nicki Minaj, Future, Ariana Grande and Rihanna – the latter who becomes the latest recipient of the MTV Video Vanguard Award. Kanye West is also confirmed to have a slot to talk, though will not be performing onstage.
The 2016 VMAs will be broadcast live from Madison Square Gardens in NYC at 9pm Eastern Time (expect a UK showing not long after).
