MTV today announced platinum-selling, Detroit rapper Big Sean will perform his new track, “Jump Out the Window”, for the first time on television at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards LIVE on MTV Base (DStv channel 322) at 09:00 WAT. In addition, rising recording artist Noah Cyrus will take the stage and perform “Stay Together”, the second single from her anticipated forthcoming album NC-17. The show will be hosted by comedian Adam Devine.
“I’m so excited to be performing at the ‘MTV Movie & TV Awards,’” said Noah Cyrus. “It will be my first time performing “Stay Together” on TV and I’m looking forward to having a great time!”
Joining Big Sean and Cyrus as performers will be the recently announced J Balvin and Pitbull taking the MTV Movie & TV Awards stage with Camila Cabello to perform their steamy hit single, “Hey Ma”, which is featured in “The Fate of the Furious”, the film that just had the biggest global opening in history. This marks the first televised performance of the track since its release in March.
The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards will serve as the ultimate celebration of the best stories, actors and characters for the MTV audience. Breakout horror film, “Get Out”, leads the pack with six nominations, along with “Beauty and the Beast” and “Stranger Things” with four. While fan favourite categories like “Best Kiss”, “Best Hero”, “Best Villain“ and more remain, MTV has broken the divide between film, television and streaming series, instead nominating the best performances no matter what the screen. Also for the first time, the former Best Actor and Best Actress categories have been replaced with non-gendered Best Actor in a Movie and Best Actor in a Show. Best Fight has been modernized to Best Fight the System reflecting the audience’s increasing awareness and activism around broader social justice issues. In addition, MTV introduced “Best American Story”, “Tearjerker”, “Best Host”, “Best Reality Competition” and “Next Generation”. Presenters and additional categories will be revealed closer to the show.
