The VMAs news is starting to flow in! On Monday, MTV confirmed that Kanye West will be performing at the big show, and yesterday Miley Cyrus debuted a super-sexy new promo letting fans know should be appearing as well. So whom can we add to the list?
Well, the way the news arrived is a bit awkward. Daft Punk was scheduled to perform on The Colbert Report yesterday, but then had to cancel due to a contractual obligation with another network under Comedy Central’s parent company of Viacom—none other than MTV.
Stephen Colbert totally blew the cover of the band, saying on his show, “Apparently, and this is a deeply guarded secret, so shhh, Daft Punk are going to make a surprise appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards. Spoiler alert. Don’t tell anyone, because fun fact—no one told me until two o’clock yesterday.” Well, that’s no good.
Bad news for Stephen, but good news for us! That means Daft Punk will almost definitely be performing “Get Lucky” with Pharrell Williams on August 25. They could also pop up with Kanye West for “Stronger.” Or pop up with Miley or Lady Gaga, too. Why not?
