Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and Jessie J will debut their new single “Bang Bang” at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.

The trio will open the show and immediately after the performance fans will be able to check out the video for the song online.

The new video features an easy-to-learn dance that was created by Jessie J.

Miley Cyrus is expected to attend the VMAs but she’s not expected to twerk. Her performance with Robin Thicke at last year’s VMAs became the most buzzed-about event of the evening. Her “Wrecking Ball” video is up for Video of the Year, competing against videos by Iggy Azalea, Pharrell Williams, Sia and Beyoncé.

Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, Maroon 5, Usher, Sam Smith and 5 Seconds of Summer are also billed to perform at the 2014 VMAs.

Beyoncé, who will also pick up the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the prizegiving, leads all nominees with eight, including Video of the Year and Best Female Video.
