Grammy Award and Golden Globe Award winner and Academy Award nominee(R) Lady Gaga is a one-of-a-kind artist and performer. She has amassed 30 million global album sales and 150 million single sales, making her one of the best-selling musicians of all time. Gaga is also one of the biggest forces in social media, with over 61 million likes on Facebook, over 62.9 million followers on Twitter and over 18.5 million followers on Instagram. Her highly anticipated fifth studio album, "Joanne," just debuted at #1 on iTunes in 60 countries, and includes the new hit songs "Million Reasons" and "A-YO."

In 2012, Lady Gaga launched the Born This Way Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering youth, embracing differences and inspiring kindness and bravery. She is also an outspoken activist and philanthropist, having been a supporter of many important issues, including LGBT rights, HIV/AIDS awareness and body image issues.

Multi-Grammy Award winner Bruno Mars is a critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, producer, director and musician who has sold over 170 million singles and over 26 million albums worldwide, making him one of the best-selling musicians of all time. Mars recently released the hit single "24K Magic," which debuted at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking his highest debut to date and his 13th Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Mars is set to release his highly anticipated third album, "24K Magic," on Nov. 18. To celebrate his new music, Mars recently performed on "Saturday Night Live" for the fourth time, and he will open the "American Music Awards." Mars recently dominated charts with his RIAA Diamond-certified single "Uptown Funk." The worldwide hit is the longest-leading Billboard Hot 100 single of this decade and is only the 10th single in the Hot 100's 57-year history to spend at least 14 weeks at #1. "Uptown Funk" took home three Grammy Awards this past year, including the coveted Record of the Year Award. The companion video for the hit single also took home an MTV Video Music Award for Best Male Video. Mars returned to the Super Bowl Halftime stage in February 2016 to perform alongside Beyoncé and Coldplay. In 2014, Mars made NFL history with the second most-watched Super Bowl Halftime Show, which saw a record-breaking total viewership of over 115.3 million, all while being the youngest artist ever to serve as the sole Super Bowl Halftime headliner. According to Billboard, Mars scored his first five Hot 100 #1 hits faster than any male since Elvis Presley. As a singer, songwriter and producer, Bruno Mars has an impressive catalog of 35 Hot 100 hits.

The Weeknd first broke into the music scene with his 2011 debut album, "House of Balloons," followed by "Kiss Land" in 2013. In 2015, he released his next album, "Beauty Behind the Madness," which earned him two Grammy Awards, an RIAA triple-platinum certification for cumulative sales in excess of three million, 16 RIAA certifications from tracks alone, with "The Hills" [seven times platinum], "Can't Feel My Face" [five times platinum], "Often" [two times platinum], "In The Night" [platinum] and "Acquainted" [platinum]. "Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)" garnered The Weeknd his first Academy Award nomination in the category of Best Original Song. His fourth full-length album, "Starboy," is set for release on Nov. 25. The title track, featuring Daft Punk, broke the record for most release weekend streams ever upon its release. In less than a week, the single amassed over 17 million streams globally and 6.5 million streams in the United States, becoming #1 most added at Top 40, Rhythm, Urban and Hot AC.

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.
