Remember in 2009 when Kanye West got up on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards and ruined the moment where Taylor Swift won her first first moonman? We have a feeling that's not going to happen again at this year's show on August 25—because this time, Kanye West is going to be the center of attention when he performs live on stage at the 2013 VMA's.

As MTV just announced on its social media platforms, Kanye is going to be performing his new single, "BLKKK SKKKN HEAD" at the show. Think his VMA performance will be anything like his performance of the song on Saturday Night Live?


After the performance, Kanye will be joining Madonna as the artist with the most ever Video Music Awards performances, having each performed seven different times at seven different shows.
