NASHVILLE - Tune-in alert: Taylor Swift is performing at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Swift made the announcement Wednesday night on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon." It will be the pop star's fourth time performing on the show.
Neither Swift nor a Thursday news release gave details about what she plans to perform, but new music is likely as the singer prepares to release a new album. She has a livestream scheduled for Monday, presumably to announce details.
The pop star has an always-memorable relationship with the show, from arriving in a princess carriage to troubles with Kanye West and an on-air hug from Beyonce.
Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Usher, Iggy Azalea, Ariana Grande and Maroon 5 also will perform on the Aug. 24 MTV broadcast from Los Angeles.
