A who’s who of A-list names — such as Billie Eilish, Megan Fox, Travis Barker and Billy Porter — round out the list of celebs who will present awards to the winners this weekend.
And speaking of Eilish and Barker: Not only will they present awards, they’re also nominated for VMAs themselves. Eilish — now with shorter hair — is up to take home five awards, including Best Pop, Best Latin and Best Cinematography. Barker, who’s been globe-trotting with his girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian, is up for Best Alternative for “t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l” with WILLOW. Barker will also perform “papercuts” on Sunday with Machine Gun Kelly.
That’s not to say the other presenters aren’t prominent in their own right. A highlight is Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, fresh off a post-games tropical vacation on the heels of winning bronze in the balance beam.
Also from the sports world, MMA star Conor McGregor, who’s long been known for his bad-boy antics.
As for the world of style, actor Billy Porter is another presenter — and will likely wow the crowd with another jaw-dropping look. The list also includes Avril Lavigne, who recently took to TikTok to drop a nostalgic “Sk8er Boi” video with Tony Hawk, Hailey Baldwin (her husband Justin Bieber will be performing) and Megan Fox.
The VMAs will be hosted by Doja Cat and will air Sunday, Sept. 12, beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
