Beyoncé has just been announced as one of the performers on the star-studded lineup at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. No one, except maybe her hubby Jay-Z, knows exactly what the R&B and pop megastar will perform, but she has plenty of options.
A song from her latest album, 4, is obvious. But if she’s going to use the venue to its full potential we doubt she’ll repeat herself. She already performed the album’s lead single, “Run the World (Girls)” at the Billboard Music Awards in May, so it’s a safe bet that’s out. And in June she performed “Best Thing I Never Had,” the album’s second single, and “End of Time” for the BET Awards, via a live satellite feed from the Glastonbury music festival. Before that, she debuted “1+1″ on “American Idol,” in May, so you can probably nix that, too.
So what’s left? Hip-hop heads would probably like to see Beyoncé perform “Party,” since it is produced by Kanye West and features a guest verse from enigmatic OutKast rapper Andre 3000. A video for the song has already been shot in New Jersey, so a VMA performance, with 3 Stacks in the building, would be an epic look, right?
