Lady Gaga is going to raise the roof — and the curtain — when she opens the 2013 "MTV Video Music Awards" with the debut live performance of her new single "Applause," the cable network said Monday.

The performance continues a streak of memorable ones at the awards show in recent years. The only things that have trumped her belting has been Gaga's over-the-top outfits and her 13 Moonmen since 2009.

Lady Gaga's new album, "ARTPOP," hits stores on Nov. 11. She has been heavily promoting the album and the leaked single in a series of odd (even for her) videos and photos in which she is frequently nude.

The VMAs air Aug. 25 at 9 p.m.

Additional performers for the 2013 “MTV Video Music Awards” include Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke.

Gaga also debuted the video for "Applause" Monday on "Good Morning America." She wore clothes that time.
