MTV has unveiled its list of performers for the 2017 MTV VMAS and it's a night you won't want to miss!

Host Katy Perry and The Weeknd, who tie for the second most amount of nominations this year, will take the stage along with a few famous friends.

Others in the line-up include band 30 Seconds to Mars, Miley Cyrus, Shawn Mendes, Fifth Harmony and Lorde.

Ed Sheeran, who has been busy touring North America, will also perform a song off his chart-topping album. 

Both Sheeran and Lorde are up for an Artist of the Year nomination, which fans can vote for on the VMAs site. Whomever takes home the crown will also walk away with the newly named award; for the first time in the award show's history, they'll be calling it a "Moon Person." 

"Why should it be a man? It could be a man, it could be a woman, it could be transgender, it could be nonconformist," said MTV's president Chris McCarthy.

The annual event will air live from The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. on Sunday, Aug. 27, at 8 p.m. ET.
