SEVEN-TIME GRAMMY(R) AWARD WINNER TAYLOR SWIFT AND GRAMMY AWARD-NOMINATED ARTIST FALL OUT BOY TO PERFORM ON "THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW," TUESDAY, DEC. 10 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

A Great Big World and UK Newcomers Neon Jungle Will Also Perform

Seven-time GRAMMY(R) Award-winning artist Taylor Swift, GRAMMY(R) Award-nominated artist Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Neon Jungle will perform on THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW, to be broadcast Tuesday, Dec. 10 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. This year's fashion show will include world-famous Victoria's Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel, Lindsay Ellingson, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, Behati Prinsloo and many more. The lingerie runway show will also include pink carpet interviews, model profiles and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the world's most celebrated fashion show.

Lauded by The New York Times as "one of the most important pop artists of the last decade," and by Rolling Stone as "one of the few genuine rock stars we've got these days," singer/songwriter Taylor Swift is a seven-time GRAMMY(R) winner, and at 20, was the youngest winner in history of the music industry's highest honor, the GRAMMY(R) for Album of the Year in 2010. She is the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the one million first-week sales figure, and is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 with three consecutive studio albums. Time Magazine has named Taylor one of the 100 most influential people in the world, and she is Billboard's current Artist of the Year, as well as their youngest-ever Woman of the Year. With record sales in excess of 26 million albums and 75 million song downloads worldwide, Taylor is currently headlining stadiums and arenas around the globe with her RED Tour.

Hot on the heels of their second sold-out tour of 2013, Fall Out Boy, the Midwest's own fab four - Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar), Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar) and Andy Hurley (drums) - has graced the cover of Rolling Stone and performed on "Saturday Night Live," "The Today Show," "America's Got Talent," "The Voice," "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Conan," THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, "Jimmy Kimmel Live," among others. Their fifth studio album, Save Rock and Roll, debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top 200 and #1 on iTunes in 27 countries when it was released in April. It features the multiplatinum hit "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)" and the new hit "Alone Together." This is the GRAMMY(R)-nominated band's second #1 debut; "Infinity On High" topped the chart in 2007.

A Great Big World's breakout hit, "Say Something," has climbed to the #1 spot on iTunes after a performance of the song with Christina Aguilera on "The Voice." The band, which features New York-based singer-songwriting duo Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino, has received critical acclaim from both the press and music community for the emotional song. In January, the group's viral hit "This Is the New Year," solidified them as an indie pop presence with staggering YouTube views and was covered by the cast of "Glee." The duo gained support from fans by crafting a six-song EP funded entirely on Kickstarter, which led them to sign with Black Magnetic/Epic Records. Known for their positive, piano-driven pop songs and heartwarming lyrics, A Great Big World's debut full-length album, Is There Anybody Out There?, will feature both the original and Christina Aguilera version of "Say Something."

Forget synchronized dance routines and matching dresses - Neon Jungle, four young women from London, Suffolk and Scotland, are blazing a trail of their own. Their debut single, Trouble, fuses with rap, dance and pop, all tied together with a lot of attitude and spirit. Fresh from touring the UK with Jessie J, the girls are being tipped for big things in 2014.

These performances will mark the artists' first appearances on THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW.

"If a mad scientist were asked to create the perfect combination of the beauty of a Victoria's Secret Angel with the ultimate talent and creativity from today's music scene, the answer would be simple - Taylor Swift," said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials & Events at CBS. "The perfect combination of Victoria's Secret and Taylor Swift, with Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Neon Jungle, adds up to a big night of entertainment on CBS."

"THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW is a one-of-a-kind, glamorous kick-off to the holiday season," said Sharen Jester Turney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Victoria's Secret. "I'm excited to share our brand with millions of customers around the world through this iconic event featuring our Angel supermodels, dazzling lingerie designs and superstar entertainers. And it makes me incredibly proud that we use this display of our brand to raise nearly $1 million for charity."

Also in the show, Candice Swanepoel will walk the runway wearing the $10 million Royal Fantasy Bra, designed exclusively for Victoria's Secret by world-renowned jeweler Mouawad. The one-of-a-kind Dream Angels Demi Bra and matching belt will be worn on the runway in homage to Victoria's Secret heritage. The set is adorned with more than 4,200 rubies, blue and yellow sapphires and diamonds hand-set in 18-karat gold, and boasts a 52-karat pear-shaped ruby drop centerpiece.

THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW is being produced by done and dusted, inc. Edward G. Razek, Monica Mitro, Ian Stewart and Hamish Hamilton are the executive producers. Hamish Hamilton is the director.
