Nick Jonas joins Rihanna and Britney Spears as the third confirmed performer.
Let's be honest, a VMAs performance is much better album promo than a video nomination - and it sounds like Nick is planning on making his few minutes onstage count.
"For me, creativity is the backbone behind everything I do. It's about seeing the world in a new and imaginative way. There's so few things left in this world that you can actually make, it's important to keep in mind the impact of all forms of art. Music is the universal language. Keep sharing."
While his monologue may not reference the iconic story of a legend or induce heart attacks that have been nine years in the making, it is promising to hear that he's planning to do something special on that stage.
Watch the 2016 VMAs on MTV on Sunday, August 28.
