Victoria's Secret announced today that Taylor Swift will be performing at their annual fashion show.

The 23-year-old country-pop singer will be performing alongside scantily clad Angels tomorrow in New York for "The World's Sexiest Fashion Show." 

Taylor Swift will be following in the footsteps of Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Kanye West and Katy Perry as she joins the show this year with Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World, and Neon Jungle. 

According to Vogue UK, many believed One Direction would be headlining this year's catwalk, but the brand quickly affirmed it was only a rumor. 

With this year's performers announced, we begin to wonder what the themes for the show will be, and what parts of the show each act will perform for. 

We all know Taylor Swift's latest songs have been light, upbeat and youthful, so perhaps she'll be featured for the PINK brand. She could be performing her least-country songs to fit the show, such as "22" or "I Knew You Were Trouble." 

Each of the musical acts will bring entirely different flavors to the show. Neon Jungle, the British bad-girl girl group, shows off their edgy sound in their hit "Trouble."

A Great Big World is an American two-man band that features piano in their music. Known for their song "This Is the New Year," which was covered on "Glee," their sound is definitely different from previous performers of the fashion show like Akon or Maroon 5.

With the heavy beats and rock 'n' roll sound, Fall Out Boy seems to be the only group that makes sense to provide soundtrack for models to walk the runway with songs like "Where Did The Party Go" and "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)." 

This year's fashion show is expected to be the biggest show to date, featuring Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss, and Candice Swanepoel. Swanepoel, the brand's most famous Angel, will be wearing the Royal Fantasy bra, worth $10 million. 

With Swift's young and wholesome persona, it will surely be interesting to see how her performance will stand up to the other acts, and ones from previous years.

The 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is recording tomorrow, Nov 13. The show will air on television on Dec 10., 10/9 CT.
