MTV Video Music Awards 2010: Kanye West will perform at MTV VMAs

Is this really the best idea? MTV has announced that Kanye West will perform at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.

The performance comes a year after West infamously interrupted country star Taylor Swift's VMA acceptance speech.

The 2010 VMA performance lineup also includes Drake and Florence and the Machine. The show airs 9 p.m. Sept. 12 on MTV.

Lady Gaga leads the nominees for the MTV Video Music Awards 2010, scoring 13 nominations. It's the most nominations for one artist ever in a single VMA year.

Lady Gaga has two videos nominated in the Video of the Year category: "Bad Romance" and "Telephone," her collaboration with Beyonce.
