TORONTO – Engaged rocker Avril Lavigne will make her return to the MuchMusic Video Awards next month.
The 28-year-old is set to perform, while currently promoting the single “Here’s to Growing Up,” said to be culled from a new upcoming full-length album.
Last year she announced her engagement to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. She has a place in MMVA lore after mooning the camera in 2003.
British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran, “American Idol” champ Phillip Phillips and first-time nominee Serena Ryder were also added to the lineup for the June 16 outdoor bash, being held outside Much’s downtown Toronto headquarters.
The first round of presenters was also announced Wednesday, including “Pretty Little Liars” stars Lucy Hale and Shay Mitchell, Kunal Nayyar of “The Big Bang Theory,” Naya Rivera of “Glee,” Canadian “Arrow” star Stephen Amell and Brittany Snow of “Pitch Perfect.”
The gala will be co-hosted by South Korean rapper Psy.
