TORONTO, April 7 /PRNewswire/ - As if flaming bras weren't enough, Lady Gaga returns to give fans much more than they bargained for at the biggest awards show on the planet - the 2011 MUCHMUSIC VIDEO AWARDS! Two years after her exploding, show-stopping performance, the hottest entertainer in the world craves a return to the MMVAs stage to show her fans why she was Born This Way.

Fans can now mark their calendars, as MuchMusic confirmed today the show airs live from the MuchMusic HQ in Toronto on Sunday, June 19 at 9 p.m. ET. Gaga, whose third studio album, Born This Way, hits stores on May 23, is the first performer confirmed for the party that has fans taking to the streets and lining up overnight for the chance to get arms-length away from the hottest A-Listers in the world.
