The Angels are back! The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs tonight at 10 p.m. on CBS. Since its inception in 1995, the star-studded event has become a holiday tradition, as synonymous with the season as Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade or Black Friday, albeit, not without its share of controversy. Despite being criticized for commercialism and suggestive content, the program drew 9 million viewers last year alone and included performers Akon and Katy Perry, plus supermodel Adriana Lima in the $2 million Bombshell Fantasy Bra.
This year, the lingerie supershow ups the ante with the $2.5 million Fantasy Treasure Bra—an aqua push-up studded with over 3,000 precious stones, including white and yellow diamonds and pearls—as seen on Australian model Miranda Kerr. Guest performers will include Nicki Minaj, Maroon 5 and Kanye West, who will perform a song with Jay-Z off their “Watch the Throne” album.
