New York, NY (May 14, 2008) � MTV today revealed performers for Hollywood's highly anticipated, irreverent awards ceremony, the "2008 MTV Movie Awards."

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."
