MIAMI, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- Controversial but popular R&B singer R. Kelly was added Tuesday to the list of performers for the MTV Video Music Awards ceremony in Miami.

Kelly faces child pornography charges in a Chicago case that's been in the pretrial process for more than three years. His next court date is Sept. 2.

MTV said Kelly will have to get permission from the judge to go to Miami.

Other performers previously announced include 50 Cent, Coldplay, Ludacris, Shakira, Mariah Carey, the Killers, Green Day, Kelly Clarkson and Kanye West.

Diddy -- Sean Combs -- is hosting the ceremony, which will be broadcast live over the cable music network.
