What do Katy Perry, the casts of 'Jersey Shore' and 'Glee,' Cher and Jesse Eisenberg have in common?
Performances from Robyn, Florence and the Machine and Nicki Minaj
Compared to the rest of the performance guest list, weird British rock troupe Florence + the Machine and Swedish dance-pop star Robyn are infamously unfamous. But both will be taking the stage, and both are likely to win over a new fanbase.
Florence, pictured, is up for four awards, including Video of the Year for beautiful "Dog Days Are Over." She and her team have promised pyrotechnics and wacky costumes for that song.
And, as is made obvious, we're positively obsessed with Robyn and her various video appearances. We expect everybody to exit with a song in their heart and a few new dance moves in the can.
New Artist nom Nicki won't be taking to the mainstage, but has a slot at the pre-show -- likely for "Your Love." As Nicki Minaj is bonkers, her show will be bonkers. And if there's anybody at the VMAs who would give Lady Gaga a run for her money when it comes to fashion, it's this new rap diva.
