The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards ceremony airs at 8PM ET/PT.

A pre-show will begin an hour earlier, and MTV just revealed the three performers.

Khalid, Cardi B and Bleachers will perform during the hour-long pre-VMA telecast.

Khalid and Cardi B have been making waves at urban and rhythmic radio (as well as the music industry at large) this year; Bleachers just scored a big alternative radio hit in “Don’t Take The Money.”

As reported earlier today, Bleachers will also be featured on the September 15 edition of MTV Unplugged.

Khalid, meanwhile, will also be part of the main show — he will accompany Logic on “1-800-273-8255.”

Other main-stage performers include Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone, Julia Michaels, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd, Lorde, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Fifth Harmony ft. Gucci Mane and P!nk.
