The MTV Video Music Awards are getting a dose of rap royalty. Jay-Z and Kanye West will bless the stage at Sunday’s show.
E! Online reports that the dynamic duo has been added to the already star-studded lineup. Details surrounding their performance are so secretive that even MTV’s crew doesn’t know exactly when Jay and ‘Ye will appear or what song(s) off their No. 1 album Watch the Throne they will perform. Will Beyoncé join them for “Lift Off” and/or will we see the television debut of “Otis”?
Jay’s other half will be performing her own set in addition to opener Lady Gaga, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Adele, Bruno Mars, and Pitbull featuring Ne-Yo. Tony Bennett will lead the tribute to the late Amy Winehouse and surprise artists will salute Britney Spears.
The 2011 VMAs will air live from the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles tomorrow at 9 p.m.
