GaGa To Perform At MTV Video Music Aid Japan Show
The Born This Way star is the first act confirmed for the bash on 25th June...
According to a press release, the international event will be hosted by Japanese pop sensation AKB48 and feature a string of performances from international, regional and Japanese artists.
The broadcast will be a highlight of MTV Japan's Music of Hope campaign, which is the channel's multiplatform response to the tragic March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
In addition to the usual award-show traditions, the program is expected to feature news about the artists and youths who have been impacted by the country's natural disasters.
MTV Video Music Aid Japan will broadcast live from the Makuhari Messe convention center near Tokyo on MTV Japan, MTV Korea, MTV China and MTV Southeast Asia.
A special one-hour version of the event will air on MTV channels worldwide as an instalment of the network's weekly live music series.
Lady G's performance at the VMAJ is just another attempt for the pop superstar to assist in the Japan relief efforts.
On the very same day that the earthquake hit, Lady GaGa announced that she had designed a special prayer wristband with all of the proceeds from sales going to benefit those affected by the disaster.
After two days of sales, GaGa revealed that her fans had raised $250,000 for the victims, tweeting, "Monsters: in just 48 hrs you've raised a quarter of a million dollars for Japan Relief."
