[artist id=”2389485″]Taylor Swift[/artist] is going from being last year’s VMA preshow fashion correspondent to taking over the main stage. Swift will perform “You Belong With Me,” which is nominated for Best Female Video, at the Video Music Awards.
In past performances, Swift has done everything from singing in the pouring rain to collaborating with Def Leppard, T-Pain and Miley Cyrus. So when she hits the stage Sunday, fans should expect the unexpected.
” ‘You Belong With Me’ is not going to be as different musically as it’s going to be different in that I’ve never done anything on an awards show like I’m going to do on this one,” she teased, saying that the show’s location adds to the allure of her performance. “It’s in New York, so anything can happen.”
The singer also revealed that she’d like to take her performance out of Radio City Music Hall and maybe pop up somewhere else. “I would love to perform somewhere outside of the venue,” she said. “I think it could be really cool if it was unlike anything I’ve ever done at an awards show, which would mean doing it at a different location.”
Recently, MTV News caught up with Perez Hilton, who gave us some details about another VMA performer. “I think, without a doubt, Gaga’s gonna be that big star of the night, just because her performance really is next-level,” Hilton said of BFF Lady Gaga. “That’s the thing about her: She’s always trying to top herself, and I think she’s going to.”
The 2009 MTV Video Music Awards will take place this Sunday, September 13, at 9 p.m. ET. Stay tuned all week long for news on additional performers and celebrity presenters.
