Drake Added to MTV VMA Performer Lineup; Taylor, Selena, Emeli & More to Present

Facebook.com/DrakeThe MTV Video Music Awards is just days away, but artists are still being added to the performance lineup.  The latest is Drake, who'll join a star-studded list that already includes Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Bruno Mars

Drizzy will give the first live TV performance of his hit "Started from the Bottom" on Sunday's telecast, though it's the video for his song "Nothing Was the Same" that's up for two Moonmen.  Drake hasn't performed on the VMAs since 2010. 

In addition, Taylor Swift, who's up for Video of the Year and Best Female Video, will be a presenter on the show, along with her BFF Selena Gomez, Emeli Sandé, Jared Leto, Kevin Hart, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and A$AP Rocky.

The festivities get underway Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT, from Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
