Nicki Minaj Will Open the VMAs

Plus Britney Spears is making an appearance!

According to a press release from MTV, Nicki Minaj will open the 2015 Video Music Awards on Sunday. Minaj teased the announced earlier on Instagram and Twitter, with a Moonman in a sonogram. (Take that, false Nicki pregnancy rumors!) Nicki later deleted the teaser and tweet but it's definitely happening, according to MTV.

You'll recall back in July, Nicki made headlines when she called out the VMAs in a serious of tweets that called into question why her immensely popular video for "Anacoda" was overlooked in the Video of the Year category. Taylor Swift jumped into the conversation, which caused the Internet to break and die. We built a new Internet, Taylor and Nicki made up (they totes love each other now) and on Thursday MTV announced she was slated to open the VMAs.  

While her performance is sure to be one of the best things about the show (seriously, have you even recovered from her "Anaconda" performance last year?), things might be a  little  bit awkward considering VMA host Miley Cyrus recently called  Nicki's tweets about the VMAs "not very polite."  So that could be  interesting. Also, Taylor is scheduled to be at the event as well (she's nominated for nine awards and her new video for "Wildest Dreams" airs during the pre-show.

If Nicki isn't enough to convince you to watch this year's VMAs, there's also Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Pharrell Williams,  A$AP Rocky, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and other acts.

What? You're still undecided?  *Heavy sigh.* OK. Fine. How about Britney Spears? Yes, E! Online reports  that Britney's name is listed in the seating chart preview for the show. (I wonder if she's sitting near my friend Tom? He's going. He said he's going to be "way up in the back, kind of by this door." Sounds like a good place.) It looks like she'll be there to present the first award, not perform. But in any case, you've now got plenty of good reasons to watch on Sunday night. And at least you'll have a better of the performances than Tom. Tom is screwed.
