The Canadian phenomenon will perform — wait for it — ‘Call Me Maybe’ when The CW series returns in October.

90210 has a history of importing music superstars at the height of their popularity — remember when Nick Carter crashed that bachelorette party last season? — but I think the show may have just landed its biggest name yet. Well, maybe.‘s sister site TVLine reports that Carly Rae Jepsen will guest star on the show’s fifth season premiere, as the headlining act Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) is opening for in Las Vegas. Of course, the performance will hit a slight snag when Ade finds out about Dixon’s (Tristan Wilds) car accident.

“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,” 90210 executive producers Patti Carr and Lara Olsen tell the site. “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.”

How do YOU feel about this casting news? Are you excited for Carly Rae to perform ‘Call Me Maybe’ (again), or will you be fully sick of it by the time October rolls around?
