Lamar, who leads the field of nominees with eight nods, will perform at the star-studded event along with Miley Cyrus, The Weeknd, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, Fifth Harmony, Lorde, Thirty Seconds to Mars, and the show’s host, Katy Perry.

In case you forgot, he previously performed alongside 2 Chainz, Miley Cyrus, and Robin Thicke during that opening number at the 2013 VMAs in Brooklyn. He’s clearly come so far.
