MTV releases a partial list of presenters and performers in advance of the video music awards. So far, we know Lady Gaga, Adele, Lil Wayne, Bruno Mars, Chris Brown and Young the Giant are performing. As far as I can tell, only Young the Giant has never played this stage, making the 2011 MTV video music awards a perverted imitation of both the Grammy Awards (nothing new here!) and the 2009 VMAs. Lots of excitement here. Lots.
