Hailing from Santa Barbara, California, Katy Perry, the two-time Grammy nominated singer, released her debut album, One of the Boys in 2008, which sold five million copies.  She recently released her follow-up album entitled Teenage Dream which spawned two #1 hits, the title track and California Gurls, which took only four weeks to reach the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.  She was nominated in 2009 for a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her hit single "I Kissed A Girl" and again in 2010 for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her hit single "Hot 'n' Cold."  Ms. Perry will perform the third single off Teenage Dream, "Firework," on THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW.

Six-time Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, producer, entrepreneur and philanthropist Akon rose to prominence with the hit single "Locked Up" from his debut album, Trouble, in 2004.  His second album, Konvicted, earned him three Grammy Award nominations for singles "Smack That" featuring Eminem, and "I Wanna Love You," featuring Snoop Dogg. He is the first solo artist to twice hold both the #1 and #2 spots simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.  He has since founded two record labels, KonLive and Konvict, that are home to talents including Lady Gaga and T-Pain, as well as his own youth-focused charity, Konfidence Foundation.  With over 40 Billboard Hot 100 songs and 300 guest appearances with a diverse mix of artists from icons Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Quincy Jones to Gwen Stefani, R. Kelly and Leona Lewis, Akon is one of the most popular artists in music today.  Akon will perform "Angel," the first single off his upcoming album, Stadium, on THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW.
