“It Will Rain” at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. No, not literally — but Bruno Mars is slated to perform alongside the scantily clad models, PEOPLE has learned exclusively. And he’ll be joining two other big names: Justin Bieber and Rihanna.

The Victoria’s Secret event is one of the most buzzed-about runway shows of the year thanks to the A-list Angels, over-the-top designs and megawatt star power in attendance. So the 13-time Grammy Award nominee will fit right in. He follows in the footsteps of Jay-Z, Kanye West, Maroon 5 and Nicki Minaj, who all performed at last year’s spectacle.

We’re expecting Mars to serenade the crowd and models with his just-released single, “Locked Out of Heaven,” but you know he’d bring down the house with past hits “Grenade” and “Just the Way You Are,” too.

It’s practically impossible to nab tickets, but the good news is that you can watch all the action (think there will be a $2.5 million diamond-studded bra this year?) on TV. Tune in to CBS on Dec. 4 at 10 p.m. ET to see Mars and the rest of the infamous runway show. Tell us: Who are you most excited to see perform: Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber or Rihanna?

yes bruno would be an amazing choice, I can already imagine him singing the new song for the models, it would sound good.

I always look forward to this right before Xmas! Love the choice of artists, I can definitely see the models struttin down the runway to these performers! I can’t wait for it, only 2 months lol argh I wish it was sooner, but it always gets me into the holiday spirit! ❤

just because Justine bieber wears lingerie does not mean she should sing on the show, there will not be any 12 year old’s there. Get some musical taste will ya.

Is Justin Bieber old enough to be at a Victoria’s Secret fashion show?

Awesome. So glad they’re trying to pull in a 14 year-old audience for a LINGERIE fashion show by using Justin Bieber. Just screams “holiday spirit,” doesn’t it?

Bruno Mars is a great choice- can’t wait to watch the show!

Seriously? Justin Bieber performing at a VS show? And people wonder why young girls are so messed up. Tune in to see your favorite pop-star and feel completely inadequate as a young teenage girl

Maybe Rihanna can slap some of the models silly and see how they react !
