On the heels of her four dazzling concerts last week at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom, MTV has just announced the Beyoncé will perform at their 2011 Video Music Awards this Sunday.

She’s a late addition to the roster, which includes Lady Gaga, Adele, Bruno Mars, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, and Pitbull—though the show will not, as announced today, have a host.

“We are thrilled to have Beyoncé return to her rightful musical home at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards,” said Amy Doyle, executive producer of the VMAs and MTV’s EVP of Music & Talent, in a statement. “Her performances at the VMAs are legendary — leaving everyone breathless and talking for days. We can’t wait to see her set the stage on fire once again!”

She is nominated for three Moonmen this year including Best Female Video, Best Choreography and Best Cinematography, Though they did not reveal what song she’ll sing, we can’t wait either. It’s been two years since Beyoncé killed it on that stage with her monumental smash “Single Ladies.”

Are you looking forward to her set? Let us know.

      Love “End of Time,” but I kinda wanna see her do “Countdown.” Probably won’t happen though.

  • Queen B

    Awesome, B is the best perfomer, she always kills it on stage . she is the only reson I will watch the show. Hope she performs Party or CountDown.

  • ugly nikki

    her album is garbage. I through the CD at my dog for sniffing around my fruit snacks. That said, maybe she will sing a tribute to someone and we won’t have to hear her music!

    • asher

      wow, I would hate to hear what kind of music you think is good!

      • Eric

        ANYTHING has to be better than Beyoverratedce’s “music”.

      • Little comment

        Real clever Eric

    • yourinfo

      If her album was such garbage you shouldn’t have bought it because i sure as hell i know i need another copy cause mines is already scratched up from playing the album so many times.

  • UGH

    It still won’t make that turkey of a record sell any more copies

  • ugly nikki

    threw not through

    I wish millons of viewers would tune out the VMA’s to send a message to MTV what a farce it is for them to have one anymore.

    • Sherry

      Mtv is a farce. I’m watching the VMAs, only to see Beyonce, Adele, even crazy Gaga. But other than that, MTV is a joke and so are the VMAs. It’s not even about videos anymore. It’s “let’s nominate based on who is #1 on twitter”. The people at MTV obviously has a lack of respect for the ones who made it the way it is in the first place. When they said they wouldn’t have a celebration of turning 30 because it wasn’t relevant, I lost all respect for it. At least give props to shows like Beavis and Butthead, Remote Control, the VJs, and artists that allowed monkey crap like Teen Moms and Jersey Shore to even air. Pathetic.

    I’m ready to see Beyonce perform her new song! And this song Best Thing I Never Had peaked at No. 19, a whole lot better than her other two singles from her album. Or maybe she’ll pair that song with Run the World Girls. She likes her performances to be that big and grandiose! Countdown is another good choice, as someone else said–it’s another one of my favorite cuts from the album!

    • Andre

      actually, it peaked at 16…but all of the songs in the top ten suck anyway…not real music, her vocals are way better than any of her contemporaries (with the exception of Adele possibly)

      • Sherry

        The top ten is a joke. Most of it is because of twitter, payola, and record execs marking down singles or doing poor remixes to hit #1. It’s the 50s, 60s all over again minus talent, great songs. During those periods, disc jockeys were paid not to play certain artists, songs by record companies to benefit performers on their roster. I wish this would stop. The album and singles charts are so miles apart. The fact Party Rock Anthem went #1, just shows a change is needed.

  • Chester

    Sexiest girl that ever walked on planet Earth.


  • hanna

    I’m hoping for an “End of Time/Countdown” mash-up. Why those two songs weren’t released as her first singles, I’ll never know. They would’ve helped 4 climb the charts.

    • Sherry

      I believe those are the next to be released since she just did videos for them, Party and 1+1. 4 actually did better than expected, minus a top ten hit. Which surprised many since blogs had bets it wouldn’t even hit #1 or worse. After it hit platinum, they shut up. I think the legal issues with her father played a part in early promotion. Now that issue is ironed out, she’s under new management I see she’s raring to go. Can’t wait though, because love or hate her she puts on performances people talk about. And she’s one of the rare ones not auto tuned up during performances.

  • The Notorious Corey

    Beyonces new album is TERRIBLE!!!!!

  • Classy!

    I wonder what hit single she will perform? Oh wait. She doesn’t have any!

    • Little comment

      Classy! More like A$$y!

    • 2lc

      Beyonce has a bunch of hit singles, simpleton.
