Bieber and B.o.B. are each making their debut VMA performances at this year's ceremony. Bieber is vying for the Best New Artist award for his "Baby" clip, while B.o.B. racked up five nominations, including a Video of the Year nod for his Hayley Williams-assisted single "Airplanes."

B.o.B. told Billboard.com earlier this month that the nominations represented a milestone for him, and that he would love to perform at the awards show. "I definitely would," he said. "Why not? That's like, 'Let's party!'"
