Eh I'm not sold on that, isn't Rihanna performing? And I feel as though if Britney was opening, they would've announced that specifically.
I'm still hoping we'll get an announcement over the weekend that Beyonce and Jay will open like some rumors suggest. MTV always makes a big fuss over who opens this show and the fact that they haven't yet teased that seems odd.

I'm shocked Twenty one pilots weren't announced/confirmed... but I guess they did perform last year?
Nick Jonas performed last year and this is the 3rd year in a row Nicki is a performer so that shouldn't be the problem. They are performing in the UK for their tour the night before which could hinder the technical aspects of them performing.
