NEW YORK (AP) — Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke will perform at the MTV Video Music Awards this month.

MTV also announced a new award Tuesday called best song of the summer. Both Cyrus and Thicke are nominees. Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” and Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” will compete with Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” Selena Gomez’s “Come & Get It,” One Direction’s “Best Song Ever” and “I Need Your Love” by Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding.

Cyrus and Thicke are now tied with Bruno Mars as the second most nominated act with four each. Justin Timberlake and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lead with six apiece.

Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Kanye West will also perform at the awards, to air live on Aug. 25.
