New York, NY (May 14, 2008) � MTV today revealed performers for Hollywood's highly anticipated, irreverent awards ceremony, the "2008 MTV Movie Awards." Known for introducing diverse line-up of performers to the masses, this year's ceremony also promises to be an explosive musical showcase.

Hosted by Mike Myers, the "2008 MTV Movie Awards" airs LIVE on June 1st at 8:00pm/7c from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA.

MTV is once again setting the trend for what will be hot in music this summer, as both Coldplay and The Pussycat Dolls perform music from their upcoming albums at the "2008 MTV Movie Awards." Coldplay is set to perform the single "Violet Hill" from their new album, Viva La Vida, to be released June 17th.
