The sexiest event of the year is almost here, and it just got a whole lot hotter. Taylor Swift was just announced as a performer at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show today, along with Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Neon Jungle.
“If a mad scientist were asked to create the perfect combination of the beauty of a Victoria's Secret Angel with the ultimate talent and creativity from today's music scene, the answer would be simple—Taylor Swift,” Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials & Events at CBS, said in a statement. “The perfect combination of Victoria’s Secret and Taylor Swift, with Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Neon Jungle, adds up to a big night of entertainment on CBS.”
Swift isn’t the only hot performer whom the VS models will have rubbed elbows with on the sexy stage. Check out six other amazing artists who have sung alongside the lingerie-clad angels.
1. Justin Bieber
A dream come true, we’re sure, for Justin Bieber! Last year, the Biebs performed his hit songs, including “Beauty and a Beat,” with the sexy models and caused quite the stir. At the famous after-party, Bieber was seen flirting with model Barbara Palvin, who then went with the singer to a performance of The Lion King on Broadway. Later reports came out that said the "Baby" singer partied with Miranda Kerr, causing some marital strife between her and Orlando Bloom.
2. Kanye West
Kanye West performed at the 2011 VS Fashion Show and even brought rapper Jay Z as a special guest. It was extra special for West because he was originally supposed to perform a few years earlier but had to cancel since his mother had just died. "In 2007, I was supposed to perform this song ... then my mom passed away," West said to the audience. "She was my superhero—now she's my superangel."
3. Maroon 5
Not only does Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine love dating VS angels (Anne V, Behati Prinsloo), but he also loves singing with them! Back in 2011, Levine serenaded his then GF Anne V down the famous runway with his hit “Moves Like Jagger” in a classic sexy moment. Wonder if The Voice judge will be at the NYC show this year to see his fiancée Prinsloo strut her stuff.
4. Katy Perry
If there were ever a girl to compete with the Victoria’s Secret angels, it might be Katy Perry. The curvaceous beauty took the stage in 2010 when her song “California Gurls” came out. Before the hot show, the models even lip-synced Perry’s hit “Firework” in a cute viral video.
5. Bruno Mars
In one of the best VS performances, Bruno Mars took the stage in 2012 to perform his smash “Locked Out Of Heaven.” Not only did Mars bring his signature style to the set, but he also brought his amazing band and their synchronized moves. It didn’t get much better for one of the hottest musicians around.
Sexiness? Check! Bangin’ body? Check! Rihanna fit in perfectly with such VS icons like Miranda Kerr and Adriana Lima during the 2012 show. Rihanna even held hands with bombshell Doutzen Kroes on the catwalk!
We can’t wait to see what Swift does this year!
