Wango Tango just got even more star power.
It was announced on Friday morning’s On Air with Ryan Seacrest that Avril Lavigne has been added to the lineup, which already includes Bruno Mars, Flo Rida, Demi Lovato, Maroon 5, and so many more.
In fact, Ryan – who is hosting Wango Tango – and Ellen K. woke up the “Here’s to Never Growing Up” singer to have her help them make the special announcement.
“Good morning, sunshine,” joked Ryan.
“Ok, literally, this is a wakeup call,” replied Avril. “But I’m really excited.”
Added Ryan, “We’re super psyched that you’re going to do this with us.”
Avril revealed that Wango Tango will only be the third time she has performed her latest single. “This will be the biggest crowd I’ve performed it to,” she added. “So I’m looking forward to a real crowd.”
As for the set list, she says it will be “Here’s to Never Growing up” and some of her classics. “I think I’m doing about five songs, so maybe I’ll put in another new track,” like “17,” which Nelson told Avril on Friday was his favorite of her new songs.
Wanga Tango will be held at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California, on Saturday, May 11.
