VMA Virgins! See All of MTV's 2017 Performers the Year They Lost Their VMA V-Card

Brace for impact. The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards are just days away from launch with host Katy Perry and this year's lineup of the industry's buzziest music artists ready to shake The Forum in Los Angeles with outrageous fashion, performances and telecast shockers.

Don't worry if you haven't been brushing up on this year's deets of who is likely to snag the MoonMan -- er -- MoonPerson because TooFab has done all of the dirty work.

The MTV Video Music Awards air Sunday, August 27 live on MTV at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Here is what we know about Sunday's show so far... (we'll be updating this as new details emerge.)

Alessia Cara and KYLE are set to perform

Fresh blood will also be hitting the stage Sunday night as Alessia Cara and KYLE belt out "Scars to Your Beautiful" and "iSpy."

Cara opened up the 2016 VMAs when she performed on the carpet's pre-show. This year she has four nominations for Best Direction, Best Fight Against the System and Video of the Year.

KYLE on the other hand is new to the VMAs and is nominated for Best Visual Effects.

Taylor Swift will debut her music video

Taylor Swift will premiere the full music video for her new single "Look What You Made Me Do" at Sunday's Video Music Awards, hosted by her arch-enemy Katy Perry.

After debuting the track late Thursday night, the 27-year-old singer released a 20-second preview of the video on "Good Morning America" this morning.

Showing a car crash, skull-adorned throne, snake jewelry and a dark and bitter Swift biting down on a string of diamonds before calling her all-male dance squad into formation, the clip certainly piqued our interest.

Fans on Twitter are speculating that the lyrics are a direct response to her very public feuds with Perry, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, who are all VMA regulars, and how their drama with the singer has played out in public.

"I don't like you little games, don't like your tilted stage, the role you made me play -- the fool -- I don't like you," she sings. "I don't like your perfect crime, how you laugh when you lie, you said the gun was mine. No, I don't like you."

The sound is different than what fans are used to hearing from the pop and country star, but according to the lyrics there's a reason for that.

"I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? Because she's dead."

"Look What You Made Me Do" is the first track off of Swift's highly anticipated new album, "Reputation," set to release Nov. 10.

Things may get political and that's okay

MTV has announced they have invited active transgender military members to Sunday's show in order to continue to promote equality of all people.

Unfortunately, the honor may fall through since active duty military members have strict restrictions when it comes to participating in high-profiled events in the public eye.

"At this time the Department of Defense is reviewing the parameters of the request" Pentagon Spokesman Lt. Col. Paul Haverstick told CNN Wednesday.

The news comes after Donald Trump recently tweeted about enforcing a transgender ban in the U.S. forces.

Hollywood Meets Sports

The winner of the big Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight in Las Vegas Saturday night is rumored to celebrate the accomplishment at the show Sunday night.

According to Page Six, the winner will join Perry on stage as one of her surprise guests.

Remote Performances

Demi Lovato will join the star-studded VMA performance lineup when she belts her her summer jam "Sorry Not Sorry" from Las Vegas. This will be the singers first time back to the VMAs since her outdoor performance with Iggy Azalea in 2015.

Another remote performance will feature a collaboration with DNCE and Sir Rod Stewart. The duo will perform the revamped classic hit "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy."

The Stage

Ric Lipson is in charge of this year's set design and tells TooFab he was determined to make the atmosphere look and feel like you're in space way before Katy Perry was chosen as this year's host.

It also looks like someone will be flying onto the stage this year at some point. Paging P!nk!

The Celebrity Seating Arrangement

There will be a ton of stars in the house on Sunday and now we know where they will be sitting when they arrive at The Forum in Inglewood.

Instead of the traditional layout, celebrities will be seated in lounge pods to dance the night away.

Video Vanguard Award winner P!nk will sit front and center next to the highest nominated artist of the night, Kendrick Lamar. Chance the Rapper, DJ Khaled and Ed Sheeran will party it up a few rows higher.

2017 MTV Video Music Awards Pre-Show

Three-time VMA-nominated Lil Yachty will kick off the red carpet as he hosts the pre-show alongside MTV's Terrence J, Charlemagne The God and Gaby Wilson.

The show will feature live performances by Bleachers singing "Don't Take the Money," Khalid singing a medley of "Location" and "Young Dumb & Broke" and Cardi B singing "Bodak Yellow."

The two-hour outdoor special will be streamed live on MTV.com and on Twitter for the first time ever so fans can enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.

Four major changes

MTV is switching things up to become more gender friendly at this year's Video Music Awards.

The network that made music videos cool renamed their iconic "Moon Man" to "Moon Person" in an effort to match society's evolving attitude and understanding of gender.

"Why should it be a man," MTV president Chris McCarthy told the New York Times. "It could be a man, it could be a woman, it could be transgender, it could be nonconformist."

MTV also combined their Best Female Video and Best Male Video categories to allow women to face off against the men. Similarly, there will only be one Artist of the Year, instead of the previous separate categories for men and woman.

On that note, the VMA's are introducing the Best Fight Against The System category this year to celebrate videos that inspire fans to stand up for what they believe in.

Lastly, MTV decided to not continue their attempt to use celebrity commentators like they did last year with Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. The awards will pick back up with one celebrity host.

Michael Jackson's Video Vanguard Award

P!NK will receive this year's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award after she performs live at the ceremony.

The 37-year-old rockstar proved her worth slaying the stage over the past 17-years with numerous live gravity defying performances.

The award is VMAs highest honor of the night recognizing one artist who went above and beyond in their career by creating catchy hit tunes, groundbreaking music videos and consistent philanthropy.

Previous winners of the prestigious award include David Bowie, Madonna, Rihanna, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears.

2017 MTV Video Music Awards Performers

This year's show will showcase a full roster of A-list performances by Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, Lorde, The Weeknd, Fifth Harmony, Shawn Mendes, Katy Perry and Thirty Seconds to Mars.

It was later announced that Logic, Khalid and Gucci Mane are joining the lineup with special performances by Post Malone and Julia Michaels.

The VMAs are known for their many surprise collaborations so we're excited to see who these performers bring on the MTV stage.

It's Katy Perry's Show

Perry will host and perform at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards.

"We're thrilled to have global phenomenon Katy Perry as the host and a performer at the 2017 VMAs," Bruce Gillmer, head of music and music talent of Viacom's global entertainment group said. "She is at the forefront of music culture and the perfect person to anchor this year's show, which promises to be one of the most diverse and music-filled in VMA history."

Beyond hosting and performing, the pop star is also tied with The Weeknd for the second most nominated artist of the night grabbing five noms for Best Pop, Best Direction, Vest Visual Effects for "Chained to the Rhythm," Best Art Direction for "Bon Appetit," and Best Collaboration for Calvin Harris' "Feels" featuring Pharrell Williams, Perry and Big Sean. Kendrick Lamar leads the pack with eight.

"I've been training with MTV in zero gravity, eating astronaut ice cream, and I'm on a group text with Buzz Aldrin and Neil deGrasse Tyson. Come August 27th, I'll be ready to be your MOONWOMAN! Brace for impact, kids," Perry said in a statement.
