The Jonas Brothers will perform at this year’s Video Music Awards.

It will be the wholesome pop group’s first-ever appearance at the event, known for its decadence and eye-popping water cooler moments (many involving Britney Spears).

In a statement, brothers Kevin, Joe and Nick said: “This is an awesome opportunity. We have grown up watching all the amazing and iconic performances on the VMAs. It is an honor to be a part of something so incredible.”

The 2008 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from Paramount Pictures Studios in Los Angeles on Sept. 7.

As previously announced, in a first for the awards, MTV will enlist its Web-savvy, youthful audience to help decide the nominees.

Viewers can vote on two categories each week including Video of the Year and Best New Artist by visiting the awards’ Web site.
