A show I don’t watch has just added two acts I’ll be missing… CBS announced Kanye West and Maroon 5 have signed on to perform on The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airing on November 29th (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT), marking the first time West or Maroon 5 have appeared on the male-skewing TV special. Also appearing on the show will be models Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Erin Heatherton, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Lindsay Ellingson, and other Victoria’s Secret Angels posing – of course – provocatively in lingerie. The angel wings will also be back, in case that’s the only reason you tune in.
CBS would like potential viewers to know that the show will not just feature scantily clad women but will also include “red carpet interviews, model profiles and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the world’s most celebrated fashion show.” In other words, there will be lots of ‘filler’ wedged in between the different ‘Angels’ modeling lingerie on the runway. Oh, and the network’s also reminding everyone the show will feature the “much-anticipated Fantasy Bra.”

Capturing their first of three GRAMMY Awards as “Best New Artist” of 2005 and going on to sell more than 15 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5 won over fans and critics alike with their hybrid rock/R&B sound. In 2010, the band released their third studio album “Hands All Over,” which spawned the GRAMMY nominated single “Misery.” The nod marked the group’s seventh nomination overall and 4th in that category. Most recently Maroon 5’s smash hit “Moves Like Jagger” climbed to the #1 spot on the Top 40 and Hot AC charts and also claimed the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. With the single’s success on the Hot 100 chart, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine became the first artist in the chart’s 53-year history to reach #1 as part of a group and enter the Top 10 at the same time as a soloist, as he is also featured on Gym Class Heroes’ “Stereo Heart.” Maroon 5’s releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries around the world, including Hands All Over, which was certified gold by the RIAA in December 2010. In addition, frontman Adam Levine joined the lineup of celebrity coaches on The Voice.
