Jay-Z and Kanye West are said to be surprise performers added to tonight's 2011 MTV Video Music Awards which will include Lil Wayne, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Adele, and Chris Brown.

The rumor is that the two hip-hop titans are said to hit the stage with Beyoncé for a first time performance of "Lift Off" off their collaborative LP, Watch The Throne. We'll see if they do indeed take it to the moon in a couple of hours.
