This year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show performers have been confirmed

We never thought the day would come where Alessandra Ambrosio would hang up her angel wings and retire from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, but according to new reports, 2017 may be the Brazilian beauty's last time on the catwalk.

Following persistent rumours of musicians and models being denied Chinese visas, this year's line-up of Victoria's Secret Fashion Show performers has just been confirmed.

Hadid, who was number five on Forbes' list of the world's highest-paid female models previous year, earning $9 million, had expressed her participation in the show in August. "Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!" she wrote on Thursday.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is usually associated with fireworks, glitter, and general extravagance - but this year all of that has gone up in smoke.

Yes, we're talking about the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which is scheduled to air on November 28.

Chinese Weibo users mostly crowed over her withdrawal.

Others, however, expressed regret, noting Hadid's apology.

Five models' visas were denied, including top model Gigi Hadid, who tweeted to share the sad news. However, models Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova have reportedly been denied entry into China because of "offensive" social media posts. Representatives from the models' agencies and Victoria's Secret declined to comment on the situation or did not respond INSIDER's requests for comment. It wasn't immediately clear why the models would be barred from walking the runway Shanghai. "And we are willing to issue visas to the eligible applicants", ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a daily briefing. Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Maroon 5 are on that list.

Argentine global footballer Ezequiel Lavezzi, who plays for Chinese club Hebei China Fortune, apologised in May after publicity photos showing him pulling the corners of his eyes back in a slant-eyed gesture angered many.
