Goulding, 28, joins previously announced performers Selena Gomez and The Weeknd for the show, which tapes next week. (Rihanna, who was previously set to perform, had to cancel her appearance to finish work on her album, a source tells PEOPLE.)

The British beauty is no stranger to high-fashion events. She performed Elton John‘s ‘Your Song’ during Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s first dance following the royal couple’s April 2011 nuptials.

Supermodels and veteran VS Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, and Candice Swanepoel will all be gracing the catwalk, along with Lily Aldridge, who will be modeling this year’s $2 million Fantasy Bra.
