Get ready for a big night in music!
The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards are set to take place on Sunday, August 28 at 9pm EST on MTV and the first three performers have been announced. Adele, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown will all grace the stage.
"I am excited about my nominations and to be back on the VMA stage," Brown said in a statement. "I have a special performance planned for my wonderful fans."
"Being a nominee and performer on the VMAs once again is an honor because everyone doesn't get that opportunity," Wayne said in a statement. The event coincides with the August 29 release of his upcoming album. "Looking forward to performing on the show, and having Tha Carter IV drop the same week!"
