According to The Sun newspaper, the 34-year-old R&B star is being courted by MTV to perform a medley of her hits with a portion of the show being devoted entirely to her, but they are also planning a musical tribute if they can’t secure her.
“The organizers are in talks with her team to devote a portion of the show to her. Their main goal would be to have Beyonce perform a medley of hits, but as nothing has been locked in yet they are also considering reaching out to other stars to organise a tribute performance,” said a source.
The nominations are the most the star has ever received in a single year and puts her in contention to beat Madonna’s record of 20 gongs.
Beyonce’s main competition at the VMAs comes from Adele who has garnered an impressive seven nominations for her third album, 25.
The two superstars will go up against each other in the Video of the Year and Best Pop Video categories for their singles “Formation” and “Hello” respectively and will also battle it out for the Best Female Video gong for which Adele’s ‘Hello’ and Beyonce’s ‘Hold Up’ have been put forward as well as competing for other accolades.
In April, Beyoncé dropped her visual album, Lemonade, her sixth solo studio release, and it was accompanied upon by a one-hour film that aired on HBO and served as a companion to the songs.
The first time she performed “Formation” was at the NFL Super Bowl 50 halftime show when she joined Coldplay.
