Lil Nas X, Machine Gun Kelly, and Chloe Bailey, to name a few, are all scheduled to perform. Chloe Bailey is set to release a solo album following her performance, as previously reported. Chloe will be appearing on the VMA stage for the second time; she and her younger sister Halle performed a crowd-pleasing rendition of their smash tune “Ungodly Hour” last year. While a few artists are preparing for their VMA performances, Normani and her fans have started a petition to have the singer invited to participate. What are your thoughts on this?
