Taylor Swift and Fall Out Boy will take the stage at this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, airing December 10th on CBS, according to The Hollywood Reporter. New York indie duo A Great Big World and British electro-pop outfit Neon Jungle will perform as well.

Where Does Fall Out Boy's 'Save Rock and Roll' Land on Our Mid-Year Report of 2013's Best Albums?

All four acts will be making their Victoria Secret Fashion Show debuts this year. The gig comes as Swift wraps up the last handful of international dates on the tour behind her 2012 record Red. Even amid all her time on the road, she's been working on new songs for the follow-up, of which she recently said, "I think the goal for the next album is to continue to change, and never change in the same way twice." Meanwhile Fall Out Boy will be touring the U.S. behind their comeback record Save Rock and Roll through December, before taking off to Japan and Europe next spring.

This won't be the first time the two acts share the same stage this year either: this past summer, during a show at the Meadowlands in New Jersey, Swift invited Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump on stage for a performance of FOB's "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light It Up)."

As for the newcomers, Neon Jungle have been making waves in the U.K. with their debut single "Trouble" and the four-piece just wrapped up a tour with Jessie J; the group's next single, "Braveheart," is slated for official release on January 19th, 2014, with an album to follow.

Indie-pop outfit A Great Big World garnered attention with a crowd-funded EP on Kickstarter that led to a deal with Epic Records. The band scored a viral hit with "This Is the New World," which appeared on a recent episode of Glee, then followed it up with the equally successful "Say Anything," which they performed on The Voice with Christina Aguilera. Both cuts will appear on their full-length debut Is There Anybody Out There?, which will see release on January 14th, 2014.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
