Macklemore & Ryan Lewis And Bruno Mars To Perform At 2013 VMAs


Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Bruno Mars will perform at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

MTV announced the new additions to the already star-heavy performance lineup via Twitter on the morning of Friday, Aug. 16.

Bruno Mars is scheduled to premiere a new single at the award show, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will perform their hit "Same Love."

These guys will join Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Robin Thicke as performers at the award show's first year in Brooklyn.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are tied with Justin Timberlake for the most VMA nominations this year -- they've got six -- and Mars is up for four. Both are in the running for Video of the Year for "Thrift Shop" and "Locked Out of Heaven," respectively.

Here's to hoping we'll get a promo video featuring Macklemore strutting around the Brooklyn subway tracks. Licking lips will earn him extra points.
