Lizzo is headed to the MTV Movie & TV Awards next month!

The influential powerhouse and singing sensation is confirmed to take the stage at the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards in June, MTV announced.  The performance marks Lizzo’s first-ever major televised award show appearance, so you know its going to be huge. 

Lizzo channels boundless self-confidence through a downright earth-quaking voice, colorful persona, and undeniable star power. In 2018 she released “Boys” which took the industry by storm and was a definitive and inescapable anthem of the year. She hit the studio in late 2018 to record her Atlantic debut album “Cuz I Love You” where she reached the precipice of a personal and creative breakthrough and introduced this chapter with “Juice.”

Also taking the stage will be global superstar DJ/producer Martin Garrix, performing his new single “Summer Days” for the first time ever alongside Macklemore and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy.

MTV previously announced that RBG, Game of Thrones and Avengers: Endgame top nominations with four apiece. While fan favorites like “Best Kiss,” “Best Hero,” “Best Villain” and more remain, MTV continues to collapse the divide between film, television and streaming as well as nominating the best performances no matter screen, genre or gender. New categories this year include “Reality Royalty,” “Most Meme-able Moment” and “Best Real-Life Hero.” You can view a full list of nominees here and vote for your favorites now at vote.mtv.com.

Hosted by Zachary Levi, the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards air from Barker Hangar in Santa Monica on Monday, June 17th @ 9PM ET/PT on MTV.
