Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa were all on hand Sunday to perform their new single “Pink Venom,” marking their first-ever performance at MTV’s annual award show. In fact, Blackpink is the first female K-pop group to perform at the VMAs period. This is history in the making, people!
Lisa’s Best K-Pop Video nomination for “Lalisa” this year also makes her the first female solo K-pop artist to be nominated for a VMA. Blackpink has been nominated for Best Group four times at the VMAs, plus another pair of Best K-Pop Group nominations. Their first VMA win was Song of the Summer in 2020 for “How You Like That.”
Other high-profile performers at this year’s VMAs include Anitta, Bad Bunny, Eminem, J Balvin, Jack Harlow, Kane Brown, Khalid, Lizzo, Måneskin, Marshmello, Nicki Minaj, Panic! at the Disco, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Snoop Dogg.
