Jessie J to open VMAs with a Bang

Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande are set to open the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards with a bang.

The pop diva trio will kick off the awards show on August 24 with their new song Bang Bang. It will be the first time the trio performs the top 10 hit.

Jessie said: "When I was the VMA house artist in 2011 I had a broken foot and I sat on the side stage dreaming about being on that main stage. So when I say that this performance is a dream come true for me, I truly mean it. And to be able to share this moment with superstars like Ariana and Nicki, it's going to be such an amazing night!"

Ariana and Nicki will also perform separately during the VMAs, to air live from the Forum in Inglewood, California.

Beyonce is the top nominee and will compete for eight awards, including video of the year for Drunk In Love. She will also receive the Michael Jackson video vanguard award.

Beyonce will also be taking to the stage on the night, where other performers include Usher, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Sam Smith and Iggy Azalea, who has seven nominations.

Eminem is also nominated for seven moonmen.
