Six-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift will perform at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards next month. But she won't be the only gold winner in the room.

The American Women's Gymnastics team - nicknamed the Fierce Five - will be present at the show on 6 September.

Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller will also present awards.

Drake and Rihanna lead with five nominations each. They'll battle Katy Perry, M.I.A. and Gotye for video of the year.

Comedian Kevin Hart will host the VMAs live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Performers include Green Day, Alicia Keys, Pink and One Direction.

At last year's MTV awards, Kanye West broke into Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for best video, appearing to suggest Beyonce's was better. He later apologised for the disruption.
