Jay-Z and Lady Gaga Added to 2009 VMAs

Jay-Z and Lady Gaga are the latest artists set to perform at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

The rapper and nine-time VMA nominee join previously announced performers Pink, Taylor Swift, Green Day, and Muse. Jay-Z, nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Male Video, will perform a song off The Blueprint 3, while Gaga will perform one of her chart-topping hits.

“I’m simply gutted to be both a performer and nominee at the 2009 VMAs,” said Gaga. “In fact, I’m so happy, I could die.”

Nelly Furtado, Katy Perry, and Ne-Yo are among the presenters at the 26th annual show, which airs live from New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on September 13 at 9 p.m.
