Adele, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne to perform at VMAs

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — Chris Brown and Lil Wayne are returning to the MTV Video Music Awards stage, while Adele will make her first appearance.

The trio are the first performers announced for the Aug. 28 ceremony in Los Angeles. The announcement was made Thursday.

Brown's once tarnished star is shining bright this year, and MTV has taken note. Amy Doyle, MTV's executive vice president of music and talent, says the network chose Brown because he's "having a moment with multiple hits" and had one of the more memorable performances in the show's history in 2007.

Doyle predicts Adele will elicit chills and perhaps a few tears. The British torch singer, nominated for seven VMAs, has the year's best-selling album so far with "21."

Lil Wayne's performance is in conjunction with the release of his much anticipated "Tha Carter IV."
