Nicki Minaj to Host MTV 2023 VMA

Nicki Minaj: The Unstoppable Host and Performer

Nicki Minaj is back in the spotlight, set to host and perform at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) for the second consecutive year. This rap sensation will once again take center stage at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on September 12, promising a night of unforgettable music, performances, and entertainment.

Back-to-Back Hosting: A Rare Feat

Nicki Minaj’s return as host marks a remarkable achievement in VMA history. Not since Russell Brand in 2008 and 2009 has someone hosted the event in back-to-back years. Minaj’s undeniable charisma and showmanship have earned her this special honor.

Nicki’s Spectacular Performance

Not only will Nicki Minaj charm the audience as the emcee, but she’s also set to perform her brand-new single, “Last Time I Saw You.” This performance will undoubtedly set the stage on fire, adding another layer of excitement to the already electrifying event.

Dominating the Nominations

Nicki Minaj is not just a host and performer; she’s also a top contender at this year’s VMAs. She has received six nominations, proving her continued dominance in the music industry. Her nominations include Artist of the Year, Video of the Year, Best Hip Hop, Best Visual Effects (all for “Super Freaky Girl”), Best R&B (“Love in the Way”), and Song of Summer (“Barbie World” featuring Ice Spice and Aqua). With this impressive lineup, Minaj could leave the night with a collection of coveted Moon Man trophies.

A History-Making Host

Last year, Nicki Minaj shared hosting duties at the MTV VMAs with LL COOL J and Jack Harlow. The trio’s dynamic chemistry and witty banter delighted viewers worldwide. Additionally, Minaj received the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award in 2022, joining an illustrious group of past recipients that includes Beyoncé, Madonna, Rihanna, Missy Elliott, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, and Britney Spears. This award recognizes artists for their outstanding contributions to the music video platform.

Breaking Barriers in Hip Hop

Nicki Minaj’s influence on the hip-hop genre and her impact on the music industry as a whole cannot be overstated. Bruce Gillmer, Viacom’s head of music and music talent, and chief content officer of music at Paramount+, praised her versatility and creative artistry. He emphasized her role in breaking barriers for women in hip hop and her status as a global superstar with cross-genre appeal.

A Star-Studded Evening

Nicki Minaj won’t be the only hip-hop icon gracing the VMA stage this year. Diddy is set to receive the Global Icon Award at the event. Puff Daddy, as he’s also known, will not only accept this prestigious accolade but also deliver a memorable performance. This marks his return to the VMAs stage since 2005 when he paid tribute to the late Notorious B.I.G. alongside Snoop Dogg in a remarkable orchestral performance.

Diddy’s Impressive Nominations

Diddy’s presence at the 2023 VMAs is significant not only for his performance but also due to his four nominations. Among his nominations, he’s up for Best Hip Hop Song for “Gotta Move On (Queens Remix)” with Bryson Tiller, Ashanti, and Yung Miami, as well as Best R&B Song for his feature on Metro Boomin’s “Creepin’ (Remix),” which also boasts contributions from The Weeknd and 21 Savage.

Weezy’s Triumphant Return
