Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj And Jessie J Have Our Hearts Bang-Banging With These VMA Rehearsal Snaps

Sunday is almost here!

Judging by the videos for Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” and Ariana Grande’s “Break Free,” and that teaser we saw for Jessie J‘s “Bang Bang,” the first-ever performance of the latter — featuring those three ladies — is primed to be bonkers.

We still don’t know what that Bang-Bang-rific experience, which will take place Sunday during the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, will entail, but the singers teased us last night with a passel of rehearsal snaps and tweets.

Jessie J — after announcing the impending release of her third album Sweet Talker — took to Instagram Thursday to share a photo of her and Grande duck-facing in the midst of their “Bang Bang” rehearsal.

Grande, for her part, simply tweeted, “vma rehearsal @jessiej @nickiminaj,” with a purple heart, to which Minaj answered, “Bye my little lady bugs!!!! Had so much fun with yall,” followed by a slew of kissy-faced emojis.

Consider our curiosity more than peaked — even though the ladies gave us scant few clues as to what Sunday’s performance will entail. In the meantime, we’re just going to continue to imagine these dancing cats bang-banging into the room.
