Get ready for Sunday night’s Video Music Awards to open with a killer performance.

MTV announced on Thursday that Nicki Minaj will kick off this year’s show.

This will be the rapper’s third time performing at the VMAs and if her open is anything like last year’s “Anaconda” performance, the bar for other performers will be set pretty high early on.

Minaj’s VMAs performance comes in the midst of her sold-out Pinkprint Tour, which is currently making its way across the U.S., after multiple stops overseas.

Earlier this week, MTV announced six other stars who’ll be performing on Sunday night. A mix of VMA veterans and newbies, the roster includes Pharrell, Demi Lovato, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, A$AP Rocky, Twenty One Pilots and Tori Kelly.

The MTV Video Music Awards air on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
