The last time [artist id="3274550"]Katy Perry[/artist] performed at an MTV awards show, things worked out pretty well. At the VMAs in September, she busted out a bone-shaking rendition of Queen’s “We Will Rock You” to open to the evening. Then she fell for — and got engaged to — VMA host Russell Brand . Is it any surprise that she wants to do it all over again?
Perry is set to perform live at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards on June 6. The singer will play “California Gurls,” the first single off her upcoming album, Teenage Dream. She joins previously announced performer Christina Aguilera at this year’s show.
“I’m proud to represent the West Coast at the MTV Movie Awards in the magical glow of the Hollywood sign with my new single ‘California Gurls,’ ” Perry said in a statement. “I hope it will be the theme song to a lot of summer loving; I know it will in my house!”
We can also announce a new group of high-profile presenters for this year’s show. The cast of the upcoming comedy “Grown Ups” — Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, Rob Schneider and David Spade — as well as Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Aubrey Plaza will all be on-hand to dole out Golden Popcorns to winners.
These folks join previously revealed presenters Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Zac Efron, Jonah Hill, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Steve Carell, Miranda Cosgrove, Shaun White, Vanessa Hudgens, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Russell Brand.
