Drake Added to MTV VMA Performer Lineup; Emeli, A$SAP Rocky & More to Present

YouTube

The MTV Video Music Awards is just days away, but artists are still being added to the performance lineup.  The latest is Drake, who’ll join a star-studded list that already includes Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke,Miley Cyrus, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Bruno Mars.

Drizzy will give the first live TV performance of his hit “Started from the Bottom” on Sunday’s telecast, though it’s the video for his song “Nothing Was the Same” that’s up for two Moonmen.  Drake hasn’t performed on the VMAs since 2010.

He tweeted, “Excited to announce I’ll be performing at the 2013 @MTV VMA’s!!!,” and added the hastags “#Brooklyn, “#OVO,” ”#Started” and “#NeedAKawsTrophy.”  That last one is a reference to KAWS, the artist who redesigned the MTV VMA Moonman statue for this year’s show.

In addition, Emeli Sandé, last year’s VMA host Kevin Hart and A$AP Rocky will all serve as presenters during the telecast. The festivities get underway Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT, from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
