Let the shrieking begin! MuchMusic announced earlier today on a special episode of NEW.MUSIC.LIVE., a heavy-hittin’ all-Canadian line up of global chartbusting performers for the 2012 MUCHMUSIC VIDEO AWARDS.

Calling in to NML to announce his own attendance, Canadian superstar and MMVA nominee, Justin Bieber will drop a sonic boom at Much HQ in Toronto.

Also confirmed to light up the stage is JUNO and Grammy®-winning global phenomenon, record producer and actress Nelly Furtado.  

Additional performers set to rock the block are singer-songwriter sensation Carly Rae Jepsen and pop/rock band Marianas Trench.

These MMVA UR FAVE performers join previously announced electro-pop 2012 MMVA co-hosts and performers, LMFAO, and global pop superstar performer, Katy Perry.

The 2012 MMVAs get down on Sunday, June 17 at 9 p.m. ET, on Much in Canada and Fuse in the U.S., with the MMVAs RED CARPET SPECIAL at 8 p.m. ET in both countries.

“I’m so excited to be coming back home for this year’s MMVAs,” said Justin Bieber. It’s an honour to be nominated and performing. I can’t wait!”

“The last couple months have been madness,” said Carly Rae Jepsen. “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!”

“Wow, we are extremely stoked to be rocking the MMVAs this year,” said Marianas Trench. “Flaming bras are out of style this season but you can bet we’ll have a few tricks up our sleeves.  Brace yourself, Canada!”
