·3 min read

The 2022 MTV Video Music Awards are returning to the East Coast and this time they are bringing LL Cool J, Nicki Minaj and Jack Harlow along to host one of the biggest nights in music.

Viewers should expect to see Harlow constantly throughout the VMAs on Sunday night as he is also nominated for seven awards. Kendrick Lamar and Lil Nas X also lead with seven nominations each. Other superstars who have been dominating the charts for the past year, like Billie Eilish, Drake, Doja Cat, Harry Styles, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd and Taylor Swift, earned multiple nominations as well.

Minaj will have her hands full with hosting and performing duties. She will be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and she is expected to perform her recent hit “Super Freaky Girl.”

Lizzo, Blackpink and J Balvin are on the long list of artists who will take the stage for unbelievable performances.

The show, which kicks off at 8 p.m. ET from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, also includes a pre-show where fans can watch their favorite musicians strut down the red (well, technically black) carpet.

The fashion is almost as entertaining as the music, so we’re keeping keeping track of the best outfits at the 2022 MTV VMAs. Take a look to see if your favorite celebrity made the list below.
