Though the award is still technically called the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, MTV refers to it simply as the Video Vanguard Award in its video teaser for the VMAs.

The internet spoke and MTV listened.

MTV announced on Monday that Elliott, a producer, rapper, singer and songwriter who has won five Grammys, will add the Video Vanguard Award - traditionally called the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award - to her pile of honors. In addition to bringing home a new trophy, the "Get Ur Freak On" rapper will also take the stage at the annual show for the first time since 2006. MTV announced this year's honoree via social media Monday afternoon. Then, in May, she received an honorary doctorate degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston, alongside Justin Timberlake. "I am Humbly Grateful to be receiving the MichaelJacksonVideoVanguard Award", the 48-year-old rapper/producer/song-writer said.

The ceremony which airs live on MTV on August 26, will be Missy's first time performing live in over a decade. "Her creative vision across production, performance and songwriting is unmatched".

Elliott, a five-time Grammy Award victor and the first female hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, has sold more than 30 million records worldwide, thanks to hits like "Work It", "Get Ur Freak On" and "WTF (Where They From)".

Elliott, who also became the first female hip-hop artist inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame this year, started her career as a solo artist in 1997 with her debut album "Supa Dupa Fly" and the standout song "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)".
