The wait is over. It was announced Monday that Lady Gaga will premiere her new single, Applause - which the singer has teased in recent weeks on social media, with provocative art - on MTV's Video Music Awards on Sunday.
Gaga, who has collected 13 VMAs since 2009, is set to open the show, which will air live from Brooklyn's Barclays Center at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Other scheduled performers include Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke.
Applause is the first single from Gaga's upcoming album, ARTPOP, due Nov. 11.
