Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha, who was set to be one of the opening acts, has to go back to work on her debut album so Travie McCoy wll take Nicki's spot. Ke$sha, calling it a "bummer," told MTV about her planned outfit for the show. "I want to wear a lot of laser beams," adding ""It definitely is going to have, like, a dance-party vibe," she explained. "I just want it to be really, really fun. Let's just say I can't disclose, but I have, like, a really, really awesome thing that's going to happen … and you can only understand it if you see it in person."
