Beyonce Will Perform At Sunday’s VMAs
Good news for all those fans unable to attend Beyoncé’s four intimate shows in New York last week: the singer will now be gracing the presence of your TV screens come Sunday, joining in on the fun at the Video Music Awards. MTV officially added Beyoncé to their live lineup on Wednesday, with what will likely be a more impressive performance than her scheduled satellite gig for the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute. “Beyoncé has delivered some of the most legendary and memorable performances in VMA history, we are so excited she’ll be returning to the VMA stage this year,” said Amy Doyle, executive producer of this year’s show. B last hit the VMA stage in 2009, with a leotard-driven performance of “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).” Conveniently she’ll be retuning with another empowerment anthem, as 4‘s lead single “Run The World (Girls)” is up for three Moonmen for Best Female Video, Best Choreography and Best Cinematography. Beyoncé will be joining the lengthy list of confirmed performers, which includes Lady Gaga,—how about another shot at that “Telephone” duet that wasn’t last week?—Lil Wayne, Adele, Chris Brown, Bruno Mars, Pitbull, Ne-Yo and Young the Giant. Plus, a house band helmed by Jessie J. and an Amy Winehouse tribute led by Tony Bennett. So at this point, we’re angry at all those artists who haven’t been announced as performers yet. Looking at you, Jigga Man.
