VMAs 2010: Florence + The Machine To Perform Live

The Video Music Awards promise just that: videos, music and awards. And the first in a long list of live performers at the 2010 MTV VMAs is the indomitable Florence + The Machine. Fronted by fiery Brit Florence Welch, who can go from ethereally airy to screaming female in the same breath, Florence + The Machine will perform their happy unhinged single, "Dog Days Are Over," and could take home any number of the four VMAs they're up for.
