The line-up for the upcoming 12/12/12 mega live stream keeps getting better. Five-time Grammy-nominated singer Miguel has signed on to perform on “The Big & Best of 2012: A Year End Celebration Presented by T-Mobile,” the unprecedented, cross-network digital live stream event that will highlight the music, personalities and pop culture moments that defined the past year.
Miguel will perform his hits “Adorn” (nominated for Song of the Year at the 2013 Grammy Awards), “Do You…” and fan favorite “The Thrill,” which all appear on his breakthrough album, Kaleidoscope Dream.
“It’s been an amazing year for music and I’m honored to celebrate alongside fans and some of my favorite musicians,” said Miguel.
The party will kick off at noon and play out across digital properties, including MTV.com, VH1.com, CMT.com and ComedyCentral.com, with eight hours of programming and highlights from MTV, VH1, Comedy Central, CMT and MTV2.
He joins fellow multiple Grammy nominee Carly Rae Jepsen on the live stream, where she will reveal her top five moments of 2012. She’ll appear alongside performers Grace Potter, Canadian indie rockers Metric, English buzz act alt-J, country duo Thompson Square, folk duo First Aid Kit and country singer songwriter Dustin Lynch, who will play a surprise duet. (Additional performers and celebrity guests will be announced at a later date.)
The live stream will also include the final showdown in MTV’s “Last Fans Standing” competition, pitting the fan armies of 16 of today’s biggest stars — from Rihanna to Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, One Direction, the Wanted, Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber — against one another in a duel for the crown of Best Fans of the Year. Sharing is under way on MTV’s Facebook page now, so be sure to help rack up points for your army before this round ends on December 12.
Hosted by MTV News’ Sway Calloway, VH1’s Carrie Keagan and CMT’s Kourtney Hansen, “The Big & Best of 2012″ will be broadcast live from MTV’s legendary Times Square studio and on location in music venues in New York City, Boston and Nashville.
