The biggest night in music and television just got a little bit bigger with confirmation that rapper Eminem is set to take the stage and perform next month at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, set to air live from Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater!

Emimem, who scored an impressive 8 VMA nominations, is currently sitting on top of the Billboard charts with his latest single “Love the Way You Lie” (featuring Rihanna) and joins an already star-studded list of performers including Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Drake and B.o.B with more to be announced soon.

Late night TV talk show host Chelsea Handler is scheduled to take on the hosting duties for the evening while folks like Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, Trey Songz, Selena Gomez and Ne-Yo are set to present.

The 2010 VMAs will be held in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theater L.A. Live and will air live on MTV on September 12th at 9 PM.

Are you amped (so far) for this year’s Video Music Awards?
