Lady Gaga - with help from some of her Little Monsters -- has announced she'll be opening this year's MTV Video Music Awards.
"I have a really big announcement," The Edge Of Glory singer said, flanked by hundreds of fans in New York's Times Square Thursday. "But I thought as usual, instead of me announcing it, I'd let the Little Monsters do it for me."
At that point, her fans unfurled a huge banner that read: "GAGA TO OPEN VMAs!!!"
"It means the world to me," Gaga, 25, said of the gig. "I just feel really blessed every day. I have the most amazing fans."
Gaga won eight awards at last year's VMAs, the event she famously wore a dress made of meat to.
This year, she's up for four awards, including Best Female Video and Best Video With a Message for Born This Way; and Best Art Direction and Best Choreography for Judas.
The MTV Video Music Awards will be broadcast on MTV and MTV.com from Los Angeles' Nokia Theater on Sunday, August 28 at 9/8c.
