The MTV Movie Awards are happening this weekend, and with each passing day we're getting more and more excited. Why, you ask? Tuesday morning MTV announced that in addition to the already stellar lineup of performers, Rihanna and Eminem will be taking the stage at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live for their first live performance of "The Monster." This marks Eminem's first return to the Movie Awards stage since 2009. Rihanna last took the stage in 2007 to sing "Umbrella."

But that's certainly not all. Last week, MTV announced that Ellie Goulding and Zedd will perform songs from the Divergent soundtrack, and the growing list of presenters now includes Shailene Woodley, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Amanda Seyfried, Cameron Diaz, Mila Kunis, and Nicki Minaj.

The awards show also includes some honors that you definitely won't find anywhere else, too. Cameron Diaz, Channing Tatum, Danny McBride, Johnny Knoxville, Jackson Nicoll, Leonardo DiCaprio, and the Anchorman 2 quartet of Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell, Will Ferrell, and David Koechner are all up for the title of #WTF Moment. But our favorite category just might be Best Shirtless Performance, which includes a nod for Jennifer Aniston in We're the Millers (she's still got it at 45!), Zac Efron, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Hemsworth, and Sam Claflin. We can't wait to see who takes home the coveted golden popcorn for that!

The MTV Movie Awards are hosted by Conan O'Brien and air this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
