Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya and Pink will perform their version of “Lady Marmalade” for the first — and what’s being trumpeted as the only — time at the 2001 MTV Movie Awards, scheduled to take place June 2 at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium. MTV will broadcast the ceremony, co-hosted by “Saturday Night Live” castmember Jimmy Fallon and actress Kirsten Dunst, June 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
A handful of presenters and performers for the 10th annual awards show were announced Thursday (May 10), with additions on both fronts expected in the coming weeks. The only other artist slated to play thus far is the Dave Matthews Band, which will share the stage with the ladies whose cover of Labelle’s ’70s disco hit is on the “Moulin Rouge” soundtrack.
The first crop of presenters features Jackie Chan, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, Hugh Jackman, Ashton Kutcher, Christina Ricci, the Rock, Seann William Scott, Chris Tucker, and Marlon and Shawn Wayans.
“Gladiator” leads the pack of nominees with five nods: Best Fight, Best Action Sequence, and the ultimate prize, Best Movie, among them. Other films scoring multiple nominations include “Charlie’s Angels,” “Mission: Impossible 2″ and “Hannibal.”
Nominees are selected through a national poll of MTV and MTV2 viewers, who also determine the winners. Voting takes place on mtv.excite.com and by calling (900) 288-4MTV ($.75 per call) through May 23.
