Usher will be sliding back to the stage for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. He joins a line-up of performers that include pop sweetheart Ariana Grande and Australian pop-punk band, 5 Seconds of Summer.

“Performing live is the purest form of musical expressing and I am damn happy to return to the VMA stage with new music,” he told MTV in a press release.

This will be Ursha’s first VMA performance in three years. In 2004, The Voice coach performed his guilty conscience anthem,”Confessions” and the Lil Jon-assisted,”Yeah.” Six years later, the eight-time Grammy Award winner performed the dancefloor favs “OMG” and “DJ Got Us Falling In Love.”

The two-time VMA winner is slated to release his eighth studio album later this year, which will feature his current single “Good Kisser” and the Nicki Minaj-assisted “She Came To Give It To You.”

The 2014 VMAs will invade The Forum in Inglewood, Calif, on Sunday, August 24 at 9pm ET.
