MTV's Video Music Awards have become a destination for big-time artists to premiere new music. Kanye West and Pusha T gave an unforgettable 2010 performance of "Runaway," off of 'Ye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and Nicki Minaj will look to follow in their footstep when she graces the stage on Sunday, August 24. According to MTV News, Minaj will perform her new single, "Anaconda," which will hopefully be the final step in releasing the music video.

This is not the first time Minaj is performing at the VMAs. In 2010, she performed a set at the pre-show, and in 2012, she joined Alicia Keys for a performance of, "Girl On Fire." This will be the first time she takes to the mainstage by herself.
