Thicke might not really be a surprise for anyone who has been following the Stephen Colbert/Daft Punk saga, especially since yesterday (Aug. 12) the late night host revealed that the “Blurred Lines” singer, like Daft Punk, would be playing the show.
In a statement, Thicke says he has “some big surprises planned” for his debut appearance at the VMAs
Cyrus, on the other hand, is a new recruit, who, like Thicke, will be making her VMA performance debut with her Top 5 single “We Can’t Stop,” off her upcoming album Bangerz.
One Direction will also be at the VMAs making a “special appearance.” No word yet on what that will entail, though we’re hoping for Harry Styles’ nerdy marketing guy alter-ego, Marcel, from the “Best Song Ever” video. Or maybe he’ll try twerking again.
