KANYE WEST is scheduled to close the MTV MUSIC VIDEO AWARDS, a year after complaining about failing to win a single prize at the event. After the 2007 ceremony, where he did not perform on the main stage and missed out on five awards, WEST vowed that he would never return to MTV.
The musician joins a lineup including CHRISTINA AGUILERA and BRITNEY SPEARS, who will open the show, but not perform. SPEARS, who is nominated for three awards, said MTV had "long played an important part in my career."
CHRISTINE AGUILERA will make her first televised performance since the birth of her son in JANUARY.
Other performers will include RIHANNA, THE JONAS BROTHERS and TI.
Speculation that MICHAEL JACKSON will make an appearance at the 25th VMAs has been played down, with MTV Pres. VAN TOFFLER saying, "I don't know whether that's going to happen."
