The focus will be on films, but there will be plenty of music as well at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, airing this Sunday night.

The big draw is Eminem and Rihanna, who’ll perform their #1 duet “Monster” for the first time ever on TV The two acts will kick off their Monster tour August 7 in Pasadena, California.  It’ll also visit New Jersey and Detroit before wrapping up August 23.

In addition, Rihanna is among the nominees for this year’s show.  The singer is up for Best Cameo Performance for her scene in the movie where she rebuffs Michael Cera‘s advances at a party by slapping him in the face, and then — SPOILER ALERT — falls to her death when a huge gaping hole opens up on the front lawn of the house where the party’s taking place. 

She isn’t the only musical act to receive a nomination, either: Kanye West is up for Best Cameo Performance for his appearance in the comedy sequel Anchorman 2.  The rapper is also nominated in the category of Best Fight for the massive brawl he gets into during Anchorman 2 with Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell, James Marsden, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jim Carrey, Will Smith, Liam Neeson and other stars.

The 2014 MTV Movie Awards air Sunday, April 13, live on MTV at 9 p.m. ET/PT.  Conan O’Brien will be the host.
