Soul-filled songbird Alicia Keys will soar this September on one of music’s biggest calendar nights.
The 31 year old has been confirmed as one of the first performers at the MTV Video Music Awards 2012.
Details after the jump…
Mrs Swizz Beatz joins Pop pin-up’s One Direction as the initial names confirmed to rock Los Angeles’ Staples Center at the September 6th extravaganza.
Little else has been unveiled about her performance, although it widely expected that she’ll perform new material from her fifth studio album – which we can reveal is all but finished and already being previewed to industry tastemakers. Fingers crossed that it’s better than ‘New Day’ – a fresh cut which was revealed to be an Alicia feature on a 50 Cent track. Thankfully so, because it was noisy nonsense.
