Doja Cat performs at the MTV EMA's 2020 on Nov. 1, 2020 in Los Angeles.

Hoard some popcorn, prep the couch: Doja Cat, Lewis Capaldi and Tones And I will perform at the 2020 YouTube Streamy Awards, slated to stream online Dec. 12.

The performers, announced Dec. 3, represent three of the hottest pop artists anywhere on the planet.

Doja Cat is coming off a pair of American Music Award wins for new artist and female soul/R&B, and she’s nominated for three 2021 Grammy Awards.

The U.S. singer, rapper and songwriter will stop by the YouTube Streamy Awards to perform “Say So,” which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 following a Nicki Minaj-assisted remix.

Meanwhile, Scottish singer and songwriter Lewis Capaldi will perform “Before You Go,” the emotional ballad lifted from his U.K. chart-topping debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent.

“Before You Go” is a record setter, having completed the longest journey to No. 1 on Billboard’s Pop Songs since the chart began in 1992, reaching the top in its 37th week.

It's the follow-up to the Glaswegian artist's breakthrough smash “Someone You Loved,” which completed a 24-week climb to the summit of the Hot 100, the second-longest trip to No. 1 for an artist's debut chart entry.

Tones And I is a success story quite like no other. The Australian artist honed her craft busking on her homeland's east coast, then took her talents to the top of the charts with “Dance Monkey,” a record smasher many times over.

Tones (real name Toni Watson) will perform “Dance Monkey,” which ruled the Australian chart for a record 24 weeks, held top spot in the U.K. for 11 cycles -- a new mark for a female solo artist -- and this week came in at No. 2 on Spotify’s year-end list for most-streamed songs.

Creator appearances, announced Dec. 9, will be made by Bretman Rock, Charli and Dixie D'Amelio, David Dobrik, James Charles, Camila Loures, Casey Neistat, Dream, LaurDIY, MrBeast, Mark Rober, MatPat and Stephanie Patrick, Rebecca Zamolo, Shalom Blac, Tabitha Brown and ZHC. And past Streamys winners Juanpa Zurita, Kyle Exum, Lilly Singh, Liza Koshy, Marques Brownlee, NikkieTutorials and PatrickStarrr will give out the first-ever Streamys Creator Honors.

The Streamys exist to spotlight creators “who made impactful contributions throughout 2020 by pushing limits, inspiring connections and influencing creative works and diverse voices across race, gender and culture,” reads a statement from organizers.

Next Saturday's event, hosted by Trixie Mattel and Katya, will stream from 9 p.m. ET on youtube.com/streamys.

The YouTube Streamy Awards are produced by dick clark productions, which is owned by MRC Entertainment, the parent company of Billboard.
