The 2015 MTV VMAs are only a few days away, but the first round of performers have just been announced. On Tuesday (Aug. 25), MTV announced that The Weeknd, Demi Lovato, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and more will take to the legendary award show stage this Sunday, Aug. 30.
The initial lineup announcement is filled out by Pharrell, Tori Kelly and Twenty One Pilots with A$AP Rocky.
According to a press release, The Weeknd will be bring the world TV premiere of his chart-topping single "Can't Feel My Face" to the VMAs. Though that is the buzziest performance of the night thus far, Sunday will also mark the first TV appearance by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis since the 2014 Grammys. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' performance song has yet to be confirmed, though the hip-hop duo released its first single of the year, "Growing Up" with Ed Sheeran earlier this month.
Lovato is also set to perform her single "Cool for the Summer." The rest of the performer's singles have yet to be confirmed.
