Jessie J, Ariana Grande And Nicki Minaj Will Perform ‘Bang Bang’ At The 2014 VMAs — These Cats Are Already Dancing

Practice your moves for this sure-to-be-show-stopping performance on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.

We’re primed to announce yet another 2014 MTV Video Music Awards performer — and this one’s a triple threat. Here’s a hint: She’s ready to “bang, bang into the room.”

Yup, Jessie J will be performing at the VMAs on Sunday, August 24 — joined by “Bang Bang” co-stars Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande — who are already slated to perform. And, get this, the trio’s performance of the hit song will be the first time ever. The Forum in Inglewood, California, may well explode.

Fresh off the “Bang Bang” video shoot earlier this month — an experience Jessie told MTV News was “hugely nerve-wracking, but exciting” — Jessie, Ariana and Nicki will be together again on the VMA stage, along with performers like Sam Smith, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift.

Newly announced presenters include Gwen Stefani and Kim Kardashian.

And to make matters even more exciting, the music video for “Bang Bang” will premiere immediately after at BangBang.mtv.com.

To celebrate the British songstress’ impending stage domination (and the video’s drop, because we just can’t wait for that), we compiled some dance moves to bust out while listening to “Bang Bang” below — via cat GIFS (because why not?). Study up for VMA night!
