Adele to make first VMA performance

Adele is set to make her first appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards, while Chris Brown and Lil Wayne are also returning to the stage.

The trio are the first performers announced for the glitzy August 28 ceremony in Los Angeles.

Chris's star - once tarnished because of his attack on Rihanna - is shining bright this year, and MTV has taken note.

"He is having a moment with multiple hits this year, and he always delivers on the VMA stage," said Amy Doyle, executive vice president of music and talent at MTV.

Adele, who is nominated for seven VMAs, is also scheduled to perform. Only Katy Perry has more VMA nods with nine, while Adele is tied with Kanye West with her seven.

Doyle predicted the Someone Like You singer would "bring chills down everybody's spine, if not bring them to tears, too".

Lil Wayne's appearance will come a day before the scheduled release of his much-anticipated new album, Tha Carter IV. Like Chris Brown, he has also performed before on the VMAs.

"Being a nominee and performer on the VMAs once again is an honour because everyone doesn't get that opportunity," he said in statement. "Looking forward to performing on the show, and having Tha Carter IV drop the same week!"

Doyle said this year's show has a dynamic set that will "allow for a lot of bells and whistles," and promised each performance would be unique. No host has been announced yet for the typically irreverent show.

And Doyle said a tribute to Amy Winehouse is a possibility. "We don't know yet, but certainly she is top of mind, in our thoughts and in our hearts," she said.
