The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards have finally arrived! The biggest names in the music industry have gathered at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., for a night of celebrations and performances where host Katy Perry—who earned five VMA nominations and is set to perform—will help honor this year's nominees and winners.

MTV made a major change to the show's format by saying goodbye to the Best Female Video and Best Male Video awards as separate categories and combining them into the single Artist of the Year award. They previously dismissed gendered categories at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

Kendrick Lamar led the pack with a total eight nominations for his “Humble.” video, closely followed by The Weeknd, who scored five nods along with Perry.

In addition, one new category, Best Fight Against the System, has been created to celebrate projects that inspire and uplift others.

So who’s up for Video of the Year, the show's biggest award? Lamar faces Bruno Mars, Alessia Cara, DJ Khaled (with Rihanna and Bryson Tiller), and the Weeknd. Pop favorites Shawn Mendes, Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles, Fifth Harmony, Miley Cyrus, and Perry will also battle it out for the Best Pop award.

Catch the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 27, from 8 p.m. ET on MTV.
