The “MTV Movie & TV Awards” are just a few weeks away and the network has started confirming the live-performances that fans can look forward to this year. The event will feature Mustard and Nick Jonas, performing their new single “Anywhere” for the first time in its entirety. MTV also confirmed that Chloe x Halle are set to take the stage for a medley of “The Kids Are Alright” and “Warrior” from their debut album.

MTV is also bringing “Black Panther’s” Michael B. Jordan; Seth Rogen and Kristen Bell, from the new comedy “Like Father;” Mila Kunis of “The Spy Who Dumped Me;” Zendaya and Gina Rodriguez in the upcoming animated film “Smallfoot” and artist and actor, Common are all confirmed to present awards this year. MTV will be adding names to the presenter list throughout the summer.

As we reported earlier this year, Chris Pratt will receive this year’s “Generation Award” and Lena Waithe will be honored with the “Trailblazer Award.”

It looks like it’s going to be a pretty fun night, this year’s event will be hosted by Tiffany Haddish and is set to air on June 18th from the Barker Hangar in Los Angeles.

As for the artist we mentioned, Mustard (Dijon McFarlane) is a multi-platinum producer and DJ from South Central LA. Known for hits including Tyga’s “Rack City,” 2 Chainz’s “I’m Different,” and Young Jeezy’s “R.I.P,” he was also behind a quartet of singles that hit the Top Ten of Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart, including YG’s “My N*gga,” Ty Dolla $ign’s “Paranoid,” Kid Ink’s “Show Me,” and Trey Songz’s “Na Na.”

Nick Jonas, the multi-platinum, Grammy and Golden Globe nominated recording artist, actor, and award winning songwriter, released his self-titled debut album way back in November 2014. The critically-acclaimed album included the triple-platinum and #1 U.S. radio hit, “Jealous.”

The sisters Chloe x Halle began back in 2013 through their YouTube Channel, where they posted their now-infamous covers of popular songs. Their rendition of Beyoncé’s ballad “Pretty Hurts” garnered over 15 million views and ultimately led to a recording deal with Beyoncé’s, Parkwood Entertainment.
