Jay-Z Beams As Beyonce Reveals Belly Bump After 2011 VMAs Performance

Update-The big surprise at the 2011 MTV VMAs was suppose to be Jay-Z and Kanye performing a track from their Watch the Throne album and maybe just maybe Beyonce would join to sing Lift Off. But noooo, Jay-Z and Beyonce had bigger plans. Beyonce revealed she is pregnant!!! Opening her performance at the 2011 MTV VMAs, Beyonce asked the audience to give it up for the “love growing inside me”. Following her performance Beyonce opened her tuxedo jacked to reveal her baby bump as the crowd cheered and Jay-Z smiled from ear to ear.

As reported earlier: Jay-Z and Kanye West released their highly anticipated collaborative album Watch the Throne earlier this month to not only rave reviews but to the no. 1 spot on the Billboard and iTunes chart. With a no.1   selling album and a U.S Tour scheduled to kick-off in October, it’s not surprising that MTV would try something to get the rap duo to perform. Other performers for the evening include Beyonce, Chris Brown, Lady Gaga, Adele and Young The Giant.

Lady Gaga is slated to open the show and is rumored to hit the stage for a second time later in the show. Beyonce may also grace the stage twice if she indeed performs ‘Lift Off” with Jay and Kanye.

The pre-show begins at 8pm and showtime begins at 9pm. No word on exactly when Jay-Z and Kanye will hit the stage, what song Beyonce will perform and if she will join her hubby on stage. There will also be tribute to Amy Winehouse – not sure if MTV whipped up anything for Nick Ashford who passed just last week.

Which performance(s) are you eager to see on tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs)?

Update: Beyonce and Jay-Z are expecting their first child together!! Congrats.
