Beyoncé is set to perform at the 2024 MTV Video Music Awards

Beyoncé in September he will take the stage at the 40th edition of the MTV Video Music Awards to celebrate the success achieved with his record-breaking album “Cowboy Carter”.

It is an important moment for the event, which does not see the “Cowboy Carter” star return to that stage after the 2016 performance, when he took home eight victories and on the final evening of the award he presented himself with a 16-minute medley of his album”Lemonade ”.

Despite having obtained nominations at the VMAs in 2018, 2020 and 2021, the 42-year-old singer from Houston no longer performed on the final awards night and skipped last year's to tour her album “Renaissance”.

“Beyoncé's presence is a great success for the VMAs and will attract huge ratings,” an unnamed source said, quoted by the website of the British magazine “Mirror” (“Daily Mirror”), “She is currently trying to understand how will perform, whether it will be a single song or a tribute similar to his closing performance of 2014, when he received the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.”

The source continued: “Since it's such a big year, the ceremony wants to regain some of its prestige, so reality stars as well as some of the more low-key shows and Tik Tok stars will have a hard time getting the entry while artists like Dua Lipa, Muni Long and Billie Eilish will get priority treatment. They also hope to sign Taylor Swift,” the newspaper's source concluded.

It's the first confirmed show for Beyoncé since her record-breaking latest album, which saw her become the first black artist to top the UK charts with a country album. She incredibly surpassed the queen of country music Dolly Parton, who, with a career spanning almost 50 years, has never had a single or album reach number one in the UK charts. Beyoncé has now even achieved both hits at the same time, with “Cowboy Carter” and the single “Texas Hold 'Em”.

The VMAs will return to New York on September 10, just four days before the 40th anniversary of the inaugural ceremony held at Radio City Music Hall, where Madonna stole the show with a performance of “Like a Virgin.”

Taylor Swift was the big winner at last year's VMAs, taking the night's biggest award, Video of the Year, for “Anti-Hero” and is expected to go head-to-head with Beyoncé this year.

The VMAs will air in more than 150 countries and territories, reaching approximately 319 million households.
