Multiple sources tell ET that Rihanna will perform a whopping four times during the VMAs, and that none other than Barbra Streisand and Frank Ocean will be presenting her with the award.

Clearly, the 2016 VMAs is shaping up to be an epic ladies night. Beyonce -- who has the most nominations out of any artist this year -- is rumored to be performing, as well as Britney Spears, and Ariana Grande with Nicki Minaj. The gold medal-winning "Final Five" U.S. women's gymnastics team -- Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Madison Kocian and Laurie Hernandez -- also told ET that they will be making an appearance.
