Ciara to Perform with N.E.R.D. at VMAs

Ciara and Pharrell

The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards are ready to take a ride. Ciara is set to join N.E.R.D. at the award show this Sunday following an announcement that the singer posted on Twitter. Though there’s no word on what the two acts will perform, it’s likely that they’ll give a rendition of “Hot-N-Fun,” with CiCi taking over for Nelly Furtado.

“I am performing with N.E.R.D for the VMA’S,” she tweeted. “It will be exciting 2 merge our worlds together!”

Ciara has been busy promoting her upcoming album Basic Instinct, shooting the video for her high-energy single “Gimmie Dat” in Los Angeles this week. Additionally, she is gearing up to film the clip for her slow jam “Speechless” with director Colin Tilley (Chris Brown’s “Deuces”).

Following their appearance at the VMAs, N.E.R.D. will be hitting the road with Gorillaz starting next month. Kicking off the tour in Boston, Mass., on Oct. 6, the bands make their way through North America before wrapping up in Vancouver on Nov. 3.

Eminem has been tapped to open the VMAs, airing Sunday at 9 p.m., along with performances by Kanye West, Drake, Mary J. Blige, Justin Bieber, Usher, B.o.B, Bruno Mars, and more.

    That Hot-N-Fun song by N.E.R.D is wack!! I’m so disappointed that Ciara is joining them @ the VMA’s I’d much rather see her perform solo. But I guess I’ll be happy that we’re gonna see her there

    I hope Ciara dances, I think thats what the WORLD loves to see from her. As a HUGE fan i am just happy that she’s performing….it doesn’t even matter what she performs or who she performs with as long as she black bags the stage! Go Ci Ci!

    I agree with CiaraGotTheMoves. Rap up shouldn’t post something like that unless they are sure about what she might do.
