Usher Added as Performer at 2010 VMAs
The 2010 MTV VMAs just got a dose of Raymond. Usher, who released his new EP Versus earlier this week, is the latest artist to get added to the lineup at this year’s Video Music Awards, where he will grace the same stage as fellow performers Paramore, Drake, Kanye West, Eminem, Justin Bieber, B.o.B and Florence + the Machine. Ursh, who’s nominated for three awards for his clip for “OMG,” is making his first appearance on the VMA stage since he danced in the rain while performing “Yeah!” during the 2004 event.
“It is an honor to once again be a part of the MTV Video Music Awards,” said Usher in a statement. “I can’t wait to perform for my fans all around the world who have helped to make this album a success and my being here possible. You never know what’s gonna happen on an MTV VMA stage. … I look forward to making it a night to remember.”
Additionally, The Social Network stars Justin Timberlake, Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield were added to the list of presenters, which already includes Nicki Minaj, Ke$ha, Trey Songz, Ne-Yo and more. The show, hosted by comedienne Chelsea Handler, will be broadcast live from Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre on September 12 at 9 P.M.
