Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke will grace the MTV Video Music Awards with their standout summer jams: the singers are now set to perform at the August 25th ceremony at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Both Cyrus and Thicke are nominated in the new Best Song of the Summer category for their tracks "We Can't Stop" and "Blurred Lines," respectively.
Cyrus and Thicke received four nods apiece, tied for second most along with Bruno Mars. Justin Timberlake and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis lead nominees with six each.
The MTV VMAs has an impressive list of performers lined up far. Katy Perry will perform her new single "Roar" live for the first time, and Lady Gaga will also premiere her new single "Applause." Both singers have albums set for release this fall, with Perry's Prism arriving October 22nd and Gaga's ARTPOP due November 11th. Kanye West is also set to perform at the VMAs, and Daft Punk will supposedly appear as well.
