The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards are shaping up to be a must-see television event. After all, following Beyonce’s baby bump surprise last year, they do have a lot to live up to.

This year, not only is country-pop sensation Taylor Swift set to perform a new song off her forthcoming studio album Red, but MTV announced on Tuesday that the U.S. Women’s Olympics Gymnastics Team — The Fierce Five — will present one of the many Moonmen that evening. In other words, be prepared for some sort of McKayla’s Not Impressedgag.

What other stars can you expect to see on the VMA stage?

Miley Cyrus — and her new pixie cut — will grace the VMA stage as a presenter, alongside fellow artists Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller.

Meanwhile, Swift joins a slew of previously announced performers confirmed for this year’s show, including “Oh Love” rockers Green Day, “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” performer P!nk, R&B songstress Alicia Keys and British boy band phenomenons One Direction, who are also first-time VMA nominees.

Comedian Kevin Hart will host this year’s VMAs, which will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. Rihanna and Drake lead the nominations with five nominations apiece.
