"I'm super anxious before these kinds of things because it's so nerve wracking. I'm still not the best on the red carpet. That is still something that I'm working on, but I'm not as anxious anymore," femalefirst.co.uk quoted the 21-year-old singer as saying.

Grande has little more reason to feel nervous as she will be opening the ceremony at The Forum in Inglewood, California, alongside Nicki Minaj and Jessie J on their track "Bang Bang".

She enjoys their company.

"I love (Nicki's) personality. I love Jesse's personality. They're both so full out with feeling. I love them so much. Jesse is always singing, which is my favourite thing because so am I, and Nicki is hilarious. I love her. She's so sassy," Grande said on a TV show.

Other confirmed performers for the VMAs include Beyonce, Usher, Five Seconds of Summer, Maroon 5, Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith.
