Golden 1 Center Performers Take Over The 2018 Video Music Awards

By Amanda Maxwell


It has been quite the year for music videos and new anthems. 2018 gave us, “God’s Plan,” “No Tears Left to Cry,” “In My Blood,” and “Finesse,” all of which are nominated for Video Music Awards. The nomination list is stacked with some of our favorite past and upcoming Golden 1 Center artists — not only have they been nominated but many are set to perform!

Just days after dropping her new album Queen, Nicki Minaj will hit the stage to perform at the VMAs. It will be her first solo performance since 2015, and we can’t help but wonder what the queen of rap will bring.

Other artists like Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, Travis Scott, Logic, and J-Lo are also set to perform throughout the evening!

As we count down the days until the epic award show, see the Golden 1 Center artists who were nominated and watch their videos below:
