Continuing her utter dominance of the pop zeitgeist, Beyoncé, Queen of Earth, will both perform at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards and receive its highest honor, the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Previous winners include Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Guns N’ Roses, U2, and Michael Jackson himself. Beyoncé has won a total of 11 Video Music Awards, both as a solo artist and as a member of Destiny’s Child, although she’s proven herself capable of making pop-cultural history even when she loses.

The VMAs will air live on MTV on August 24 at 9 p.m. Usher, Ariana Grande, 5 Seconds of Summer and Maroon 5 will also perform.
