The iconic singer will sing the lead single off her new album at the ceremony on August 25 at Barclays Center.
A day after teasing fans about her possible first single "Applause" from her much-anticipated new studio album "ARTPOP" coming out on August 19, it's now announced that Lady GaGa will first perform it live right at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 25 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. It will be the 27-year-old entertainer's first performance since being sidelined by a hip surgery earlier this year.
As for other firsts, so far only GaGa has been confirmed to perform at this year's awards ceremony, with less than a month away from the expectedly star-studded show. Top nomination getters as Justin Timberlake, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus, Pink and 30 Seconds to Mars are most likely being eyed for the line-up of performers.
GaGa is no stranger to the MTV VMAs stage, having performed her hits on the annual awards ceremony, "Paparazzi" back in 2009 and "You and I" in 2011. She had also previously debuted her album "Born This Way" with a first time live performance of the title track but at a different awards show, the 2011 Grammy Awards.
Aside from performing at the VMAs, the Mother Monster has also bagged several Moonman trophies from MTV including the one for her Video of the Year award for her "Bad Romance" music video, which she accepted while wearing her infamous meat dress.
