Grande to appear on MTV awards

Ariana Grande will perform at the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 24, the cable network announced Wednesday.

The pop singer is the first performer announced for the awards show, which MTV will broadcast live from the Forum in Inglewood, California.

Grande’s current single, “Problem,” has reached double platinum status and peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. It features white-hot rapper Iggy Azalea.

MTV reprised its popular countdown show “Total Request Live” for one day for Grande on Wednesday. It was dubbed “Total Ariana Live.”

The 20-year-old Grande will release her sophomore album, “My Everything,” a day after the VMAs.

Grande was the star of the Nickelodeon sitcoms “Victorious” and “Sam & Cat.” Her 2013 debut single was the Top 10 hit “The Way.”
