Get ready for another memorable high-flying show-stopping live performance from Pink. The singer has been announced as the recipient of the 2017 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

Pink is receiving the prestigious honor to celebrate her 17-year career and videography and due to her “impact on music, pop culture, fashion and philanthropy,” read a statement released by MTV on Tuesday (Aug. 15). Pink will also perform during the awards show.

The pop/rock singer’s history with the VMAs began way back in 2000, taking home her first Moon Person (formally known as “Moon Man”) trophy in 2001. She has amassed 18 nominations and has won 6 trophies throughout her career.

Pink’s Vanguard announcement was met with mixed reactions, because her videos are not known as being innovative, creative, iconic or even memorable. And because it was previously speculated that her long-time rival Christina Aguilera would receive this year’s award.

Pink actually responded to that last tweet, revealing that she and Aguilera had “made amends” and ended their feud which started during the recording process of their hit “Lady Marmalade.” Pink has stated in the past that Aguilera was difficult to work with.

However, she also had a message for her haters and Xtina fans that dissed her music videos.

The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards will air live Sunday, August 27 from Inglewood, California and will be hosted by Katy Perry.
