According to MTV’s television promos, the list of performers for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards are Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift, Green Day, Pink, and One Direction. But they’ve now added Rihanna and Frank Ocean to the line-up.
Rihanna was the first to announce on Twitter last week after a fan asked if she was performing: “PHUCK YES I WILLLL!!! JUST FOR MY NAVY!!!!” she replied. She ties Drake with the most nominations at five, including Best Female Video, and Best Pop Video.
Frank Ocean will also be taking the stage at the Staples Center, performing music from his debut album, ‘Channel Orange.’ Ocean is nominated for three awards, including Best Male Artist, and Best New Artist.
