Justin Bieber and Megan Thee Stallion lead the 2021 VMA nominees with seven and six nods apiece, with Billie Eilish, Drake, Lil Nas X and BTS also up for awards.

Other artists set to perform at the event include Foo Fighters, Doja Cat, Twenty One Pilots, Olivia Rodrigo, Kacey Musgraves and Doja Cat, who will also host this year’s event.
