Updated Thursday at 1:15 p.m.: MTV has confirmed that Kanye West will indeed perform at the 2010 Video Music Awards. Drake and Florence + The Machine will also take the stage at the 27th annual awards show on September 12.
Kanye West might not have to steal Taylor Swift’s thunder to get noticed at the Video Music Awards this year.
UsMagazine.com reported Tuesday that the rapper is set to perform at the 2010 MTV VMAs, but the network has yet to comment on the matter.
Either way, we’re hoping West does perform - if only so Swift can hop on stage and tell him that she'll let him finish but....well, you know the rest.
West’s “Power” video, or moving painting, recently premiered on MTV after an episode of “Jersey Shore," and his album is expected to drop in the fall.
