So far, there has been no word if Kanye will preform at the awards ceremony which will be held Microsoft Theater in LA. However, recipients in the past such as Justin Timberlake and Beyonce have put together a short performance for the fans.

Kanye hasn’t been to the VMAs since 2013 when he preformed ‘Blood on the Leaves.’ West has been nominated for ‘Video of the Year’ three times but has yet to win. This year’s ceremony will be hosted by Miley Cyrus.
