Calvin Harris has been confirmed for the MTV Video Music Awards 2012 pre-show – providing the soundtrack to the hour long show.

The Scottish star will warm-up the crowd before the main event kicks off, with The X Factor USA judge Demi Lovato taking to the stage to perform her song 'Give Your Heart A Break' on the night.

The pre-show will take fans backstage at the event and on the red carpet as the biggest names in pop arrive for the show next Thursday (6th August).

Performers at the awards themselves include the likes of One Direction, Rihanna and Taylor Swift – who will give a live rendition of her new single 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' for the first time.

Calvin is also up for Best Electronic Dance Music Video on a night where Rihanna and Drake are the most nominated stars – scooping five nods each in a variety of categories.
