The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards are almost here! The show airs live on September 6th and though we already know that several Latinos are nominated, it has just been announced that another of our favorite stars will actually be performing during the festivities. Demi Lovato will be warming up the crowd by singing her latest song "Give Your Heart a Break" at the VMA pre-show!

Lovato, who has had a stellar year with her hosting gig at the Teen Choice Awards and her judging role on X-Factor, will be joined by DJ Calvin Harris at the warm-up show. We're sure her performance will be amazing, but she's hardly the first of Latina star to light up the VMA stage. In honor of the upcoming awards, here are 9 other memorable VMA performances by Latino celebs. Hopefully next year, we'll be adding Lovato to the list!
