Nabbing a spot as a performer at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the second biggest deal next to the SuperBowl. Last year, 1.4 billion people around the world tuned into the lingerie spectacular, a huge coup for any artist pushing a new release. (Harry Styles’ performance of Georgia surely saw record streams spike post VS show.)
As the VS models strut about the streets of the Big Apple at their final fittings for the show (the veterans are all in knee high boots, the newbies in crops), angels Martha Hunt and Jasmine Tookes stopped by Good Morning America on Thursday to announce 2018’s musical performers. So drum roll please… This year, Halsey, Shawn Mendes and The Chainsmokers will headline the show along with Bebe Rexha, Rita Ora and The Struts in New York City.
We were semi hoping Bradley Cooper would channel his Jackson Maine vocals one last time. It is, after all, what the people want. And just like Jackson did Ally in A Star Is Born, Cooper would coax a reluctant Lady Gaga to the stage.
Join @BebeRexha, @TheChainsmokers, @Halsey, @KelseaBallerini, @RitaOra, @ShawnMendes and @TheStruts, plus 60 of the world’s top models when “The @VictoriasSecret Fashion Show Holiday Special” airs on @ABCNetwork, Sunday 12/2, 10/9c. #VSFashionShow pic.twitter.com/mm456IQakX
