Set your TiVos, MTV’s Video Music Awards are just two short days away. And this week, more info has leaked about what fans can expect at the annual Moon Man bash. Interestingly, the network has revealed that there will be no “official” host this year, but tons of famous faces are expected to light up the stage.
The performer garnering the most attention right now is undoubtedly Lady Gaga. The Little Monster is set to open the show and promises plenty of her trademark “surprises.” Will she arrive in a giant egg? Don a new “meat dress?” Or show up half naked? Anything is possible.
“I’m really very honored and excited to open the show,” Gaga toldMTV News. “But I won’t reveal anything! I want it to be a surprise.”
Beyoncé also got added to the performer’s list this week, though she hasn’t revealed exactly which song she’ll be singing. She’ll be joining the VMA live roster of Adele, Bruno Mars, Chris Brown, and Young The Giant.
One other track we can’t wait to see at the VMAs is Pitbull and Ne-Yo’s “Give Me Everything.” Partially because we love the song, but also because of that ongoing drama with Lindsay Lohan. Pit famously extended a VMA invitation toLiLo, which she has not responded to. But you never know. This awards show is famous for “surprises”.
Another interesting aspect of Sunday’s show is the Lifetime Achievement Award that’s getting handed out. Though she’s not yet 30-years-old, Britney Spears will be 2011’s honoree. Rumor has it that artists like Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, and even Janet Jackson will be performing renditions of her famous songs.
And as far as the presenters go, you can expect to see Victoria Justice, Zoe Saldana, and Drake all handing out awards. Even new bride Kim Kardashian will reportedly be taking the stage to announce winners.
