Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards just got bigger with confirmed appearances from John Legend, Leona Lewis, Kobe Bryant, and Jamie Foxx who will present awards. Kanye West and Christina Aguilera will also take the stage Sunday. Set to air live from Paramount Pictures on Sunday, September 7th, the MTV Video Music Awards will celebrate its 25th Anniversary with two recently announced performances from Christina Aguilera and Kanye West. The latter of the two, Kanye West surprised many by ending his “VMA Strike” after last year’s debacle at the awards stemming from the fact that he wished to open the show with the hit single “Stronger,” which MTV allegedly denied in favor of opening the show with Britney Spears. West is expected to debut new music from his rumored fourth studio album due later this year. In addition to the new performances, R&B singer John Legend joins a list of presents that includes Jamie Foxx, Kobe Bryant, Ciara, Chace Crawford, Ashlee Simpson, Corbin Bleu, Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens. Rihanna is set to open the awards that are also rumored to feature Michael Jackson and Britney Spears who depending on who you ask is or isn’t performing. Previously announced powerhouse performers include Pink, T.I., Kid Rock, Paramore, Lil Wayne and the Jonas Brothers, as well as DJ AM and Travis Barker rocking the party by mixing live drum beats to scratched records throughout the show. The duo will collaborate with Katy Perry, Lupe Fiasco, and The Ting Tings to perform new and legendary hits to celebrate 25 years of music that has emanated from the VMA stage.
