Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Nelly Furtado and Marianas Trench Playing MMVAs
He'll be your boyfriend, "your Buzz Lightyear" and June 17, Justin Bieber will be one of your MMVA performers, too. Biebz phoned in to MuchMusic's New Music Live Wednesday night to share the news, but he's not the beginning and end of today's MMVA announcement.
As entertaining The Biebz and his most enchanting haircut may be, the MMVAs need more than one pop star to transform Much HQ into the cloud of music, chaos and teenage hormones that is Canada's favourite block party.
Also joining the line-up are Nelly Furtado, this year's top nominee Marianas Trench and Bieber's soon-to-be-tour-mate, Carly Rae Jepsen.
"The last couple months have been madness," the "Call Me Maybe" singer told Much in a statement. "I can't wait to come home and play a show where this all began at this year's MMVAs. Can't wait to see everybody!"
All four new acts will join previously announced performers Katy Perry and LMFAO Sunday, June 17 for the big show.
Who else might be attending? Pop stars? Movie stars? Tupac holograms? Further announcements about this year's guestlist are expected to be rolled out in the coming days. As always, check Dose.ca for updates.
The 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards are broadcast live on Much June 17 at 8 p.m. (Check out this year's nominees, and head to Dose.ca contests for your chance to win a trip to this year's show.)
