It seems like the Stays (the fandom name for the Stray Kids) are having a blast this year. After news broke that Felix Lee had been named “House Ambassador” by French luxury label Louis Vuitton, it was revealed that Stray Kids would be making their first appearance at the VMAs this year.

The VMAs, which will be held next month, have already begun announcing this year’s performers. The VMAs had been encouraging viewers to vote for their favorite acts and artists in various categories, including the winner of the “Best K-Pop” award, leading up to the big reveal.

The hottest act in town, the South Korean boy band Stray Kids, will be performing at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. The first group of performers for MTV’s upcoming event has been announced. For the first time ever, Stray Kids will be joining the likes of Demi Lovato, Karol G, and Maneskin on stage at a U.S. award show.

When Will MTV Broadcast The Awards Ceremony? Which Song Will Stray Kids Be Playing At The Show?

The 2023 MTV Video Music Awards will air live on September 12 from the Prudential Center in New Jersey, and the band is one of six nominees for Best K-Pop.

S Class, which earned Stray Kids a nomination for Best K-Pop at the MTV Video Music Awards for the second time in as many years, will be making its U.S. broadcast premiere. The group was up for the same award for “Maniac” last year, but Lisa of Blackpink took home the trophy for her solo effort, “LALISA.”

Meanwhile, 5 Star: The 3rd Album, which features S Class, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in June, making it the group’s third consecutive No. 1 album in less than 15 months. It followed Stray Kids Mini Album: Oddinary and Maxident.

Who Are The Nominees For This Year’s Best K-Pop?

In this year’s running, Aespa, Blackpink, Fifty Fifty, Seventeen, Stray Kids, and TXT are among the nominees. Given the caliber of their competitors, it was assumed that one of these acts would perform at this year’s Video Music Awards. And now it seems that those assumptions were correct! Stray Kids are among the first performers to be revealed for the MTV Video Music Awards.

The group made their debut on March 25, 2018. The group consists of eight members, namely Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Seungmin, and I.N.

Stray Kids’ performance at the American Music Awards makes them the third K-Pop act to do so, following BTS and BLACKPINK. They also made history by becoming the first artists to accomplish this feat as a fourth-generation group.


As far as the nominations are concerned, Blackpink has four VMA nominations: “Best K-pop,” “Best Choreography,” “Best Art Direction,” and “Best Editing.” TXT, on the other hand, received nominations for “Best K-pop” and “Best Push Performance of the Year” for “Sugar Rush Ride.” Along with Blackpink and TXT, K-pop acts Fifty Fifty for “Cupid,” Aespa for “Girls,” Stray Kids for “S-Class,” and Seventeen for “Super” have also been nominated.

Thirty-five artists are making history this year with their first-ever nominations for the MTV Video Music Awards. The list features many well-known artists, such as Boygenius, GloRilla, Ice Spice, Pink Pantheress, Flo Milli, René Rapp, and Peso Pluma.

The globalization of the music industry in recent years is exemplified by the fact that few of the artists announced this year are from outside the United States. The 1984 inaugural VMAs featured five American performers—Madonna, Huey Lewis & the News, Tina Turner, ZZ Top, and Ray Parker Jr.—as well as two Brits—Rod Stewart and David Bowie, the latter of whom gave a pre-recorded performance from London. This year’s lineup is significantly more international.
