It’s not just the star-studded nominees that have us pumped for the ‘2012 MTV Video Music Awards’ but the epic performers too!

As well as One Direction and Alicia Keys, we’re super excited to reveal that Pink will be taking to the stage for a special live performance at the bash, which will be broadcast live from LA’s Staples Center Friday September 7 on MTV Australia.

And the comeback Queen herself, who already has an impressive five VMA trophies under her belt, is buzzing too!

"Being a part of the VMAs for me is extra special because my mom never let me used to watch MTV as a little girl," she MTV News.

"I would watch it anyway but she would also try and ground me but then I would just sneak out my window and go to someone's house that had MTV so to be on MTV is quite ironic."

Meanwhile, comedian Kevin Hart has been announced as the host of the evening! The funnyman, who’s guaranteed to deliver a laugh-a-minute, confirmed the news in a hilarious promo clip with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
