    It looks like Katy Perry is set to keep her Witness press game on full tilt as she has been announced as the host of MTV's Video Music Awards. The VMAs also unveiled a slew of live performances set to take place during the award show, including Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, Fifth Harmony, Lorde, the Weeknd, Thirty Seconds to Mars, and Shawn Mendes. Perry is also set to perform during the show. The VMAs will air live from the Forum in Los Angeles on August 27th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

    Kendrick Lamar leads this year's nominations pack with eight, host Perry and The Weeknd sit second with five apiece. Lamar is up for Artist of the Year, and his video for "HUMBLE" received seven nods, including Video of the Year.

"Feels", the singer's collaboration with Calvin Harris, got a nod for Best Collaboration, and picked up nominations for Best Pop Video, Direction, and Visual Effects.

    Voting for the 2017 VMAs is open as of now. Fans can cast ballots for nine awards: Video of the Year, Artist of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Collaboration, Best Pop Video, Best Hip Hop Video, Best Dance Video, Best Rock Video, and Best Fight Against the System Video.
