The country singing sensation is the first performer to be confirmed for the awards show, set for Sept. 13 in New York City.
The performance will be Taylor’s first at the VMAs — and she couldn’t be more excited to take center stage.
“I’m so excited that MTV and the VMAs have invited me to perform, because I think this year’s show will be unlike anything they’ve ever done!” Taylor says. “I love incorporating theatrics into my performances,” Swift says, “and the VMAs have always allowed artists to run with that. MTV has been so good to me, and I could not be more excited about this year’s VMAs.”
