Pop sensations were the theme of CBS’ press releases Tuesday.
The network kicked off its Tuesday by confirming that Taylor Swift and Fall Out Boy will serve as headline performers for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Breakthrough act A Great Big World and buzzworthy foursome Neon Jungle are also set to perform at the event, which CBS will tape this month and broadcast at 10PM on December 10.
“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,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials & Events at CBS. “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.”
It followed that announcement with a reiteration that Lorde, who is enjoying a reign atop the Hot 100 with multi-format smash “Royals,” will perform in the latest “Live with Letterman” special.
Streaming live at 8PM on CBS.com and Vevo, the set list will include “Royals,” “Team” and other selections from her debut LP “Pure Heroine.”
