In her brief recording, she can be seen taking a sip of her drink, as her track Chromatica I blasts in the background.

As she teased the first live performance of her chart-topping Chromatica album, the singer looked ready for the upcoming award show, where she is leading this year’s VMAs with nine nominations.

Her nods are for video of the year, song of the year, best collaboration and artist of the year.

Her VMA performances are known to be over-the-top, like her unforgettable 2009 mashup of her hits Poker Face and Paparazzi, in which she concluded her act by hanging lifelessly with blood running down her her torso.

BTS, Doja Cat, and J Balvin will also be among the musical acts dazzling viewers on stage at this year’s show.

The three acts, whom are all nominated for an award, were announced as performers at the 2020 ceremony earlier this month.

BTS has been nominated for Best Pop, Best K-Pop, and Best Choreography, Doja Cat is up for Song Of The Year, PUSH Best New Artist, and Best Direction, while J Balvin will be battling it out for Best Collaboration and three Best Latin awards.

The VMAs will air live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on August 30, and will be following new safety guidelines in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

New York governor Andrew Cuomo announced in June the event would take place at the iconic arena with ‘limited or no audience.’

On top of the usual awards going out that night, this year marks the introduction of two new honors recognizing work produced during the pandemic: Best Music Video From Home and Best Quarantine Performance.

Among those competing for Best Music Video From Home include Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Drake, and John Legend, while R&B duo Chloe x Halle are up for Best Quarantine Performance.

Grande and Gaga both have nine nominations each, while Billie Eilish and The Weeknd follow close behind with six nods.
