Via Entertainment Weekly, “During the Aug. 20 telecast, Lopez – whose Cardi B- featuring single “Dinero” is nominated for two VMAs this year – will celebrate the honor with her first performance on the WMAs stage since 2001.”

Jennifer joins the likes of David Bowie, Kanye West, Tom Petty, and other artists as past recipients of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Madonna became the first woman to claim the prize in 1986, followed by Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Pink in subsequent years.
