90210 apparently has Carly Rae Jepsen on speed dial: The CW soap has booked the “Call Me Maybe” singer to guest star this fall, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Jepsen will perform a to-be-determined song off her new album in the show’s Season 5 opener, which is scheduled to air on Monday, Oct. 8. In the episode, Jepsen is the headliner at Adrianna’s Las Vegas premiere, which is interrupted when news gets out about Dixon’s car accident.
Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” track, which just spent its fourth consecutive week perched atop Billboard‘s Hot 100 singles chart, has become a pop culture phenomenon, inspiring a slew of YouTube-friendly homages and remixes.
“We fell in love with her song when we first heard it, and used it in last season’s finale before it was a national sensation,” said 90210 exec producers Patti Carr and Lara Olsen in a joint statement to TVLine. “We think she’s an exciting artist and are thrilled to be able to have her music on the show again, this time in a live performance in our season premiere.”Follow @MichaelAusiello
