The Teen Choice Awards just got a lot hotter: On Wednesday night, [artist id=”501686″]Britney Spears[/artist] announced on her Web site that she’ll be performing on the show, which tapes Sunday night and airs Monday.
“Breaking News: Britney will be performing at the Teen Choice Awards on Monday!” the announcement reads. “Tune in to Fox at [8 p.m. ET] to see Britney’s performance and if she wins the three awards she’s nominated for.”
Spears is up for three awards, including Choice Music: Single for her song, “Circus”; Choice Music: Female Artist; and Choice Music: Tour for her Circus tour, which hits the states again later this month. There has been no announcement made about what song Spears will perform on the show.
Spears will join hosts/ nominees the Jonas Brothers, the “Twilight” cast and Miley Cyrus, who is set to perform her new single, “Party in the U.S.A.”
“Twilight” dominates the nominees list with 12 nominations, including Drama, Romance and Actor and Actress in a Drama. The Jonas Brothers scored nine noms, including Love Song and Breakout Show.
Cyrus, “High School Musical 3: Senior Year” and “Gossip Girl” all tied with 10 nominations each, and find themselves battling it out against each other in the Choice Music: Soundtrack category, where the soundtracks for “HSM” and “Gossip Girl” goes against the soundtrack for “Hannah Montana: The Movie.”
