Justin Timberlake is the latest artist announced to be a performer at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 25, where he will also receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

Timberlake is tied with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis for the most VMA nominations this year with a total of six, including one for Video of the Year. The Vanguard Award.honors innovation and creativity in music video creation and it was previously given to Jackson, Madonna, R.E.M., Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers, according to USA Today. The last artist to receive the award was Timberlake's ex-girlfriend, Britney Spears, in 2011. 

Timberlake released the complete tracklist for The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2 on Wednesday. The new album includes his latest hit Take Back the Night.

The former member of *NSYNC joins previously announced VMA performers Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke. Not only will this be Cyrus' first ever performance at the VMAs, but she is also the most nominated female this year. The 20-year-old is up for four awards: Best Song of The Summer for We Can't Stop, Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and  Best Editing -- all for the same track.

Gaga headlines the VMAs with her new single Applause. Her performance will be her first major set live on stage since abruptly ending her Born This Way Ball world tour in February due to a severe hip injury. Her surgeon said if she continued on with the tour she may have needed a full hip replacement that would put her out of performing for at least a year, the singer revealed to WWD

Thicke received four VMA nominations this year, tied for second most along with Cyrus and Bruno Mars. Katy Perry will perform her new single Roar live for the first time ahead of her album release in the fall. Prism will be out in stores Oct. 22 followed by Gaga's ARTPOP on Nov. 11.
