Frank Ocean’s year keeps getting better. The “Thinkin Bout You” singer has been announced as a performer for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.

Ocean will make his VMA debut, delivering material off his critically-acclaimed album channel ORANGE. He is nominated for three awards including Best New Artist and Best Male Artist.

In addition, Rihanna has been officially announced as a performer. Last week, she leaked the news on Twitter.

Previously announced performers include Taylor Swift, Green Day, Pink, One Direction, and Alicia Keys, who will debut the title track off her upcoming album Girl on Fire. Additionally, 2 Chainz, Ke$ha, The Wanted, Andy Samberg, and Rashida Jones have been added to the list of presenters, which also includes Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, and Miley Cyrus.

    Hope he does Pyramids, or a song that shows off his vocals. But please, please don’t do Bad Religion.

    @Roman Empire, When I see her on OPRAH then I’ll admit she’s winning. ELLEN! Its not that serious. I’m just tired of watching Nicki’s mediocre lackluster performance thats all. You know if you go as hard for JESUS as you do Nicki, you’ll probably be the one that’s hated on. GET-IT ROMAN! lol!

    This should boost his record sales. For a young artist its more important to perform at VMAs then The Grammys.

    Now i’m hoping others of OF will perform. If Lana Del Rey can get a performance with barely any hype and MTV don’t really play her vids like that(I’m very glad she performing though), then the rest of OF should get a performance.
    they need to perform OLDIE

    I need Kanye on there too

    I’m really happy for Frank Ocean being nominated for three categories. It will be equally exciting to see him perform, he’s one of my favorite R&B artists. This will be a great award show this year, I can’t wait to see Alicia Keys perform a song from her new album as well. This show always provides my Dish coworkers and I a lot to talk about. This is why I’ll be recording it on my Hopper this year. I love that this equipment allows me to start watching the recording on one of my TV’s and then continue where I left off on any TV in my house. It’s so convenient because I’m able to get a lot of work done and in several different rooms while I watch play backs.

    Can’t wait. It would be good if he performed Pyramids or Sweet Life. I just hope he wins best new artist, he deserves it.

    I think super rich kids would be most relevant
    Coz no1 would wana hear him singing songs about a guy
    Anyway pyramids my least favorite don’t understand how you would fuck with that?
