As if we needed another reason to watch the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, MTV announced Wednesday that superstar Beyonce Knowles will perform during Sunday night’s telecast.

No word yet on what the Run the World (Girls) singer will perform, but after the show she put on at the Billboard Music Awards and her four-night stint at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom, we expect it will be pretty awesome.

Beyonce, who is up for three Moonmen this year, including Best Female Video, joins a growing list of performers that includes Adele, Bruno Mars, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Young the Giant, Pitbull, Ne-Yo and the night’s opening act, Lady Gaga.

Meanwhile, in other VMA news, MTV also announced that Nicki Minaj will debut the video for Fly with Rihanna during the VMA preshow.

The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards air Sunday at 9PM ET/PT. Relive Beyonce’s epic performance at the Billboard Music Awards below.
