Bruno Mars will debut his new single onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards at the end of the month (Aug13).

The pop star has been added to the line-up alongside MACklemore & Ryan Lewis, who will make history by performing their gay rights anthem Same Love at the event - the rapper and his sidekick will become the first act to perform at all three of Mtv's major televised events, the mtvU Woodies, Mtv Movie Awards and the Vmas, in a single calendar year.

The duo is up for six awards at the ceremony, which will take place at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on 25 August (13).

Justin Timberlake, the recipient of the event's Mtv Vanguard Award, Lady Gaga and Robin Thicke have previously been announced as performers.
