Well we already knew Rihanna was set to perform, but now MTV has announced that the model will be the show opener. As I mentioned yesterday she will be performing 'We Found Love' then leading into 'Cockiness' with A$AP Rocky.
Well this is a nice little announcement just in time before the 2012 MTV VMA’s air. 2 Chainz aka Hair Weave Killa, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne are now scheduled to perform on the 2012 VMA stage Thursday night airing live at 8/7c.
Also gracing the stage will be Alicia Keys who will debut her first live performance of her first single ‘Girl On Fire’. There’s no word on if Nicki Minaj will join her on stage since she is featured on Keys new single.
Rihanna will also be performing on the VMA’s her newly rereleased song ‘Cockiness’ now featuring rapper A$AP Rocky, and ‘We Found Love’ alongside Calvin Harris. Are you enthusiastic about the newly added performers?
Alicia Keys' new single "Girl On Fire" is slated for a September 4th release, and now comes the news that the 'Inferno' remix of the song will also coincidingly release on the same day and feature Nicki Minaj. Given the song title, Nicki seems like a good fit. I'm betting the ladies will be hooked and eager to see the concept in just a couple of days. Alicia will also be performing the single at the VMAs on September 6th (no word if Nicki will perform it with her) and the album, also titled Girl On Fire, drops November 27th.
Are you looking forward to an Alicia Keys x Nicki Minaj collab??
UPDATE (09.03.12): Listen/download the full collab here.
Alicia Keys is almost set and ready to go for her new upcoming album Girl on Fire. Today she has released the single cover to Girl on Fire. This era she’s rocking a new and more edgier look then her normal glammed up look she’s known for. Alicia will debut the titled track Girl on Fire on September 4th, and will be performing it for the first time on the 2012 MTV VMA awards September 6th.
Alicia will be release her album Girl on Fire on November 27th. I personally cannot wait to hear what she has to offer. There hasn't a time Alicia has released and album and I’ve not loved it. Catch Alicia discussing the making of the album here.
Alicia Keys is making a come back as a new mom and with a hot body. She's come a long ways from her cornrow bohemian style with a few misses in her early days, but she's been making up for the past now.

Let's see how smart these girls are... or not!
