For the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, Shakira is slated to receive the coveted Video Vanguard Award and also grace the stage with a performance. This is a landmark moment, as she’s the first artist from South America to receive this illustrious recognition. Last year, the award was bestowed upon Nicki Minaj, adding her to an elite list of past recipients that includes cultural titans like Beyoncé, Madonna, Rihanna, Missy Elliott, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, and the one-and-only Britney Spears.
Since her show-stopping performance at the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show, where she shared the stage with Jennifer Lopez, Shakira has been on a creative spree. She’s dropped a series of chart-topping singles and has worked alongside a versatile group of artists including Rauw Alejandro, Anuel AA, the Black Eyed Peas, Karol G, Bizarrap, and Ozuna.
In the competition for VMA nominations, Taylor Swift and SZA are running neck and neck, leading the pack this year. They’re closely followed by emerging star Olivia Rodrigo, as well as music veterans Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, and Doja Cat. As for the live performances lined up for the award show, expect show-stopping acts from Demi Lovato and Karol G, among others. The spectacle will unfold at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on the 12th of September.
