MTV VMAs Update: Pitbull to Perform, Jessie J Appointed VMA House Artist
Pitbull and Jessie J are the latest artists to get in on the fun for the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Pitbull has been added to the performance roster, while Jessie J will be serving as the house artist.
Pitbull joins the ranks of Lil Wayne, Lady Gaga, Chris Brown, Adele, Bruno Mars and up-and-coming rock outfit Young the Giant. Jessie J will be tantalizing viewers and attendees with her turntable and vocal skills throughout the show -- hopefully we'll all be treated to some amazing costume changes from the 'Price Tag' songstress as well.
MTV also announced a bevy of presenters that will be giving out the highly coveted moonmen at the award show. Musicians Nicki Minaj, Drake, Joe Jonas and 30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto will be handing out awards, as will actor Taylor Lautner and comedians Kevin Hart and JB Smoove.
Tune in to the awards show on Aug. 28 at 9PM EST (the pre-show will start at 8PM EST), and be sure to check back with PopCrush for complete live coverage of the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.
