Cardi B & Khalid to Perform at 2017 MTV Video Music Awards Pre-Show

It's been a year of firsts for Cardi B. Her breakout hit "Bodak Yellow" made its debut onto the Billboard Hot 100 and currently holds the No. 3 spot. Now, Cardi will check off another box on her bucket list: performing at the MTV VMAs. 

To kick off the annual award show, Cardi B will bring her summer anthem to the VMA pre-show stage at Sunday night's (Aug. 27) event at The Forum in Inglewood, California. There, she'll be joined by fellow 2017 breakout artist Khalid and indie-pop band Bleachers. Lil Yachty is also set to host the pre-show along with MTV's own Charlamagne Tha God, Terrence J and Gaby Wilson. 

The Bronx rapper recently gave her latest hit the Latin treatment, recruiting Dominican rapper Messiah to assist on the Spanish remix of "Bodak Yellow." In the past few months, a slew of rappers have shown Cardi B support including 21 Savage, who brought her out during one of his recent tour stops. 

MTV announced Gucci Mane, Logic and Post Malone as performers for the night's main event, joining previously announced performers Miley CyrusEd SheeranFifth HarmonyLordeThe WeekndThirty Seconds to MarsKendrick Lamar, Julia Michaels and Shawn Mendes on the show hosted by Katy Perry.
