Taylor Swift has landed her first televised gig following the release of her new album Lover.

The first artist that has been announced to perform at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards is pop sensation, Taylor Swift. The news that the 29-year-old singer is set to take the stage was announced by the network Wednesday. 

It is still unknown which songs Swift will perform, but it’s safe to assume that tracks from her most recent seventh studio album, which releases three days prior, will be featured heavily in the set. 

This is the first time Swift return to the VMAs stage since her 2015 performance of “Bad Blood.” Swift is also tied with Ariana Grande for the most nominations, with 10 nods.

The awards show will take place on August 26 and will be broadcast live from Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
