Taylor Swift And Ed Sheeran Will Be This Year's Performers At The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
Along with Ariana Grande and Hozier.
This year's performers for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in London will be Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran, as well as Ariana Grande.
Irish musician Hozier is the fourth artist billed to perform.
Which is more than cause for celebration.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is an annual extravaganza and the 2014 spectacular will take place next month in London for the first time.
The show, which will be seen in approximately 200 countries, will include musical performances, pink carpet interviews, model profiles and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the world's most celebrated fashion show.
Swift, Sheeran, Grande and Hozier all follow in the footsteps of some stellar performers – everyone from Justin Timberlake to Rihanna and Katy Perry have taken to the catwalk stage in previous years.
Other previous performers have included Usher, Akon, the Spice Girls, Kanye West, will.i.am, Justin Bieber, Mary J Blige, Andrea Bocelli, Sting, Bruno Mars, Fall Out Boy, Maroon 5, Seal, A Big Great World, Black Eyed Peas, and Neon Jungle. Phew! And it will be a Sheeran first on the day as his latest single "Thinking Out Loud" will be making its American network television debut on The Victoria's Secret catwalk.
So what can we expect this year?
Well, Swift performed at the show in New York last year. So plenty of sass, like so.
And hopefully a lot of this.
And here's hoping for plenty more of this.
With scores of astounding Victoria's Secret Angels and outfits.
Supermodels Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio will wear the 2014 Dream Angels Fantasy Bras designed exclusively for Victoria's Secret by Mouawad and valued at $2 million each. It is the first time two Victoria's Secret Angels have been chosen to wear the coveted Fantasy Bras, seen below. They will be joined by models Doutzen Kroes, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, Karlie Kloss, Elsa Hosk, Lindsay Ellingson and more.
And we have ~everything~ crossed these two duet. But we shall just have to wait and see, won't we?
One person who will be hoping it will run smoothly on the day (if she's taking part again,) is Victoria's Secret model, Jessica Hart, who made snarky comments about Taylor Swift following her efforts last year.
Following the 2013 New York show, Hart told Women's Wear Daily that she didn't think Swift would make it as a Victoria's Secret model and said she didn't think she had "fitted in" after her performance on stage alongside the models.
Hart said at the time:
I think, you know what, God bless her (Taylor Swift) heart. I think she's great. But, I don't know, to me, she didn't fit. I don't know if I should say that. I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we've been working for 14, 15 years; what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself.
But now Swift has been confirmed for a second consecutive year they may have to face each other on the same stage once more.
Although Hart did take the opportunity to apologise following her comments, insisting she had been misinterpreted. In an interview with Vogue Australia earlier this year, Hart told the magazine: "It was taken out of context, but I have certainly learnt my lesson." Hart's attendance in the model line-up this year is yet to be confirmed.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on Tuesday, December 9th at 10pm on CBS in the United States.
