This morning, MTV announced that Adele will be making her first appearance as a performer at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Along with the English songstress, rapper Lil Wayne and R&B stud Chris Brown–both familiar with the VMA stage–will return to give it a go this August.

“I am excited about my nominations and to be back on the VMA stage,” Brown, who hasn’t performed at the VMAs since 2007, said in a statement. “I have a special performance planned for my wonderful fans.”

The timing of the show couldn’t be any better for Wayne. His new album, Tha Carter IV, drops the day after the show. “Being a nominee and performer on the VMAs once again is an honor because everyone doesn’t get that opportunity,” he said in a statement. “Looking forward to performing on the show, and having Tha Carter IV drop the same week!”

Several more acts will be announced in the coming days leading up to the big show. The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards air live on Sunday, August 28 at 9 p.m. ET.

    “R&B stud Chris Brown”????? Go f— yourself. Reluctantly I have to accept he hasn’t disappeared off the face of the planet, but it’s disgusting to have a dude who punches chicks in the face called a stud.

      Do you mean like SERIAL WIFE BEATERS: Eminem, Sean Penn, Mickey Rourke, Jeff GoldBlum, Nicholas Cage, Christian Slater, Michael Douglas, Ozzy Osbourne, Dan & Alec Baldwin, Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, & Jay-Z to name a few of the Emmy, Oscar, Golden Globe, Grammy winners who are considered “studs” although they beat wives/gfs for years? Chris & Ri had 1 fight 3 yrs ago that she admitted to starting by beating on him 1st. Oh that’s right as long as your a female beating or cutting off a guys organ its all good! He just can’t hit back right? GTFOH!

      Oh my God, he we go again. I’m so done with you holy than thou comments on Chris Brown and his 3year ago drama with his ex. Remember it was his personal business. Which I repeat is none of your business. I want you to look into the mirror ands say three times Chris’s personal life is none of my business. What happen between him and his ex is their business. Now I want you to think about why the hell should you comment about Chris Brown past and does it make sense. I’m Teambrezzy and were here to tell you step off Chris Brown D.

    LOL! I LOOOOVE Adele but it’s going to be so funny between all the movie plugs, rap performances so vulgar the whole thing will be beeped out and therefore silent, and the terrible let’s-try-to-be-relevant jokes to hear a woman actually get up there and sing! The MTV generation will be like “But where’s the b00bs and sugar?!?”

      if you’ve seen adele in concert, she has a pretty filthy mouth on her too when she’s telling stories!

  • Dave

    Adele is too good for this mess of an awards show.

    • Fog cue

      Adele must be thinking otherwise if she said she likes The Jonas Brothers during her Grammy acceptance speech a couple years ago.

    • melody

      Your kidding right. She has a sailors tongue. So please she may sing heavenly but she’s not by far an angel. So please quit it already.

  • kim

    • My Way

      Yes, I am only going to watch this hot mess of an award show to watch Chris Brown and Adele perform. I too would like to see Bey take the stage. Other then that, we have seen everyone else many times at ever other award show!
