Cobra Starship to Perform at VMA Pre-Show Hosted By Selena Gomez

News keeps coming in about this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. We just learned that Lady Gaga will open the show, but the fun won’t start there.

Because as everyone probably knows, MTV always kicks things off on the red…er BLACK carpet with interviews and some kind of special performance. And this year, that performance will be none other than Cobra Starship performing their single “You Make Me Feel…” featuring Sabi.

Cobra is of course riding high, their new album Night Shades is due out on August 29th, they’re headlining the FBR 15 concert in NYC and they’re going to be out on tour opening for Justin Beiber this fall. So performing at the VMA’s is just another notch in their proverbial snake-skinned belt.

The pre-show will be hosted by Selena Gomez, who had better be prepared. After all, the VMAs are infamous for their over the top arrivals, from 30 Seconds to Mars showing up with a bike gang in homage to their video for Kings and Queens to Lady Gaga arriving with date Kermit the Frog, to My Chemical Romance arriving in an armored car. Not to MENTION the fashion do’s, don’ts and WTFs that we’re sure to see.

The VMAs air on August 28th.
