Justin Timberlake To Perform at MTV VMAs and Receive Vanguard Award

(Radio.com) Justin Timberlake has been added to the star-studded performance roster for this year's MTV Video Music Awards, alongside previously announced acts Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Robin Thicke and according to Stephen Colbert, Daft Punk. The show is scheduled for August 25 at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

MTV News also reports that Timberlake will be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award in recognition of his history of memorable music videos, including "Rock Your Body," "SexyBack" and "Mirrors," the latter being nominated for this year's Video of the Year (he's up for six Moonmen this year, tied with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis for the most 2013 nods).

Other artists to receive the award in previous years include Britney Spears, the Beastie Boys and Duran Duran. Timberlake's videos (solo and with N'SYNC) have earned the singer a combined 14 VMAs, second only to Madonna.

Timberlake, who wraps up his Legends of the Summer Tour with Jay Z this week in Miami, took to Instagram this week (August 14) to painstakingly reveal the track list for The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, due for release Sept. 30. more on this story
