GRAMMY(R) AWARD-WINNING SUPERSTARS THE BLACK EYED PEAS WILL BE THE SOLE MUSICAL GUEST ON "THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW" TUESDAY, DEC. 1 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK
Three-time Grammy� Award-winning superstars the Black Eyed Peas will be the sole musical guest on THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW, taped in New York, to be broadcast Tuesday, Dec. 1 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Marisa Miller and a bevy of other Victoria's Secret Angels will star in this holiday-infused lingerie runway show, which will also include musical performances by the Black Eyed Peas, red carpet interviews, model profiles and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the world's most celebrated fashion show.
The runway show will also feature the $3 million Harlequin Fantasy Bra designed by renowned Italian jeweler Damiani and worn by Supermodel Marisa Miller.
"We are in the middle of a really defining time right now," says Black Eyed Peas co-founder will.i.am. "It's the end of the traditional era of how we experience and consume music and media." The Black Eyes Peas are more than happy to test those boundaries. With three Grammys and a fifth studio album called The E.N.D. (The Energy Never Dies), the LA-based quartet is the best selling hip-hop group in music today, having sold over 26 million albums worldwide. The E.N.D. entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #1, and their songs "Boom Boom Pow" and "I Gotta Feeling" spent 26 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart - making Billboard history with the longest successive stay at the top of the chart.
will.i.am has not only been the group's creative engine, but also a fashion designer, actor, social activist and an incredibly sought-after producer. Fergie has become a global superstar from the massive success of her multi-platinum solo album, The Dutchess, and has blossomed into a fashion icon as well an A-list actress landing a starring role in the feature film "Nine." Taboo and apl.de.ap, who started the group with will.i.am in the mid �90s, have served as cultural ambassadors and have also worked in the worlds of acting and philanthropy. Together, the four parts of the Black Eyed Peas have grown the group into an unparalleled story of musical success and accomplishment.
This is the group's first appearance on THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW.
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.
