The band announced on Thursday (August 15th) that they will be returning to the award show for the first time in more than a decade to deliver a special remote performance from an iconic location along the shoreline of their home state, New Jersey. The boy band-turned-man band is also up for four awards, including video of the year, best pop, and song of the year for “Sucker,” as well as artist of the year.
The JoBros will be sharing the stage throughout the night with previously announced acts including Video Vanguard Award recipient Missy Elliott, Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Lizzo, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Lil Nas X and Rosalia.
The last time the JoBros took the VMA stage was in 2008, when they performed their smash hit, “Lovebug.” The exhibition took place outside, with the trio sitting on a stoop in front of a prop building, that opened up at the bridge to a massive crowd of teens running toward the stage. Relive the moment below in anticipation for this year’s show to take place on August 26th.
