Taylor Swift to Perform and “Fierce Five” Gymnasts to Present at 2012 MTV’s Video Music Awards

This year’s VMA’s will be hosted by comedian Kevin Hart and held live from Los Angeles, California at the Staples Center. Top musical acts like six-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift, Green Day, One Direction, Alicia Keys, and Pink will perform.

One of the most anticipated presenters of the evening will be the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team. The “Fierce Five” ladies—Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Alexandra Raisman, Kyla Ross and Jordyn Wieber—who won the gold for the first time since 1996 will be sharing the stage with other celebrity presenters like Wiz Khalifa, Miley Cyrus, and Mac Miller.

The “Video of the Year” award will be battled out between such heavyweights as Katy Perry, Rihanna, M.I.A., Drake, and Govte.

The excitement begins on Thursday, September 6th at 8PM ET/PT.
