After the news of Lady Gaga's rumoured performance at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) 2016, another popular pop-star has been confirmed to perform at the VMAs after a break of nine-long-years. Britney Spears, who is known for some of the most iconic moments during the coveted awards, will take to the stage on 28 August for the first time since 2007.

The 34-year-old pop star will also debut her new single Make Me from her upcoming album Glory at the award ceremony.

MTV confirmed the news of the Toxic singer's performance during this year's VMAs on Twitter. "Get ready... @BritneySpears will be performing at the 2016#VMAs on Sunday, August 28 at 9/8c!" the tweet read.

Even Spears shared the exciting news on social media on Tuesday 16 August with a promo video that remembered her memorable 2001 performance of I'm A Slave 4 U. The mother-of-two created history during the MTV awards earlier as she walked in to the stage with an albino python draped over her shoulders.

"The VMAs don't just give you a stage. They give you a story — some way of taking a fraction of a second, and making it live forever. Before you know it, it's history. Before you know it, it's Britney, bi***," Spears is heard saying in the background of the promo video shared by her.

This year's VMAs will be all the more exciting for the fans of the pop star as she is set to debut her new single Make Me from her upcoming album Glory.

The Womaizer hitmaker will be joined by rapper G-Eazy. Both have collaborated for Spears's new song during this year's ceremony. Before the pair serenades the audience with the lead song from their album, Glory will be released on 26 August.

It's not just a stage. It's a story… @mtv #VMAs August 28.
