Jay-Z and Kanye West to Perform at VMAs

Kanye West and Jay-Z

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.

  38. Put That On Everthang

    Lets go, Weezy looking very suspect going at Jay like a jealous girl defending her man when all Jay did was state facts. Wayne cheesy ass line don’t make no sense how you going to kidnap a boss that’s bigger than you, A lot of people didn’t know who Wayne was or even take him serious until he got on the Destiny’s Child record

    @Put That On Everthang,
    that’s so true and it just shows how disrespectful wayne is to beyonce

  39. Real Issh

    I doubt Bey is performing with them because she’s performing Countdown & Party with Andre 3000 .

    Kanye and Jay-Z performing? This VMAs is going to be epic.

    Plus, my favourite — Chris Brown — is going to be up there.

    Me and my friends made our own version of Look At Me Now, we love the song so much.

    I hope Busta joins Chris Brown for his VMAs performance tonight. That would make the night of awesome duets even better.
