With the VMAs just weeks away at this point, performers and presenters are being announced left and right!
Now, MTV has revealed that young Pop star Justin Bieber and the guitar-playing Atlanta MC B.o.B., in addition to rappers Kanye West and Drake, are due to take the stage September 12th at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, which will air live from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. This will mark both Bieber and B.o.B’s first performances (JB presented at last year’s ceremony).
The Biebster shared his excitement with MTV News when it was announced that he’d be taking the stage at this year’s VMAs:
“I’m excited to be performing at the VMAs. It is all still unbelievable, because last year I went for the first time and no one knew who I was,” said Bieber, who’s nominated for Best New Artist. “Just really shows that dreams can come true and what incredible, dedicated fans I have. I’m a lucky guy and grateful. Now I just want to get on that stage, have some fun in front of my heroes, because at the end of the day I’m still a kid and still a fan.”
