With only two days remaining until the taping and only ten days remaining until the CBS broadcast, performers have finally been revealed for the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Victoria’s Secret confirms that Harry Styles, Jane Zhang, Miguel and Leslie Odom, Jr. will be performing at the show.
The announcement comes following several weeks of speculation regarding the lineup.
Earlier this fall, the Shanghai Municipal Culture, Radio Broadcasting, Film and Television Administration released a document revealing that Taylor Swift and Harry Styles had obtained work authorization for a Shanghai show on November 20. Some viewed the document as confirmation that Swift and Styles would be appearing.
As weeks went by without a formal announcement from CBS or Victoria’s Secret, some began to wonder whether they were actually going to see Styles and Swift performing on the high-profile runway.
As the show drew near, rumors of a Katy Perry performance also began emerging.
Earlier this week, leaked graphics suggested that Styles, Miguel and Katy Perry were the performers. Still, without an announcement from Victoria’s Secret, it was hard to view the graphics as definitive.
Thursday, Page Six broke the news that Perry would definitely not be performing. Perry’s visa was apparently denied due to a 2015 performance in which she wore a dress with a sunflower (a symbol for anti-China protesters) and Taiwanese flag.
Saturday’s announcement puts an end to the speculation — we now know the four acts that will be taking the stage.
The November 28 CBS broadcast airs at 10PM ET/PT.
