The performers for this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show were announced earlier today and we can say that it’s pretty much four different kinds of artists for the annual lingerie fashion show.
Headlining the performance portion of the event are Fall Out Boy, who just ended their arena portion of the Save Rock and Roll tour. Also taking the stage will be Taylor Swift who is still in the middle of her RED Tour.
Okay. If that’s the way the models want to roll.
Also joining the two Top 20 radio staples, are indie pop band A Great Big World and UK newcomers, Neon Jungle.
A Great Big World might not be well-known yet in the music world, but the group can thank Kickstarter for giving them an entrance through the door. The group went to start a Kickstarter campaign which helped fund the production of their six song EP. Thanks to the funding the band were eventually discovered and signed to Epic Records. And for anyone out there who is an avid The Voice fan, they we the ones who performed with Christina Aguilera “Say Something” during last Tuesday’s show.
As for Neon Jungle, another mostly unknown group here in the United States, the British girl group most recently toured with another U.K. performer, Jessie J during her last tour. The group is also in the process of putting out their debut album, Welcome to the Jungle with lead single, “Trouble” hitting the air waves back in August and new single “Braveheart” hitting the waves today.
“If a mad scientist were asked to create the perfect combination of the beauty of a Victoria’s Secret Angel with the ultimate talent and creativity from today’s music scene, the answer would be simple — Taylor Swift,” Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President of Specials and Events at CBS, said in a statement. “The perfect combination of Victoria’s Secret and Taylor Swift, with Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Neon Jungle, adds up to a big night of entertainment on CBS.”
Past performers include Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj and the show is scheduled to air on December 10 at 10:00 p.m. on CBS.
