The 2013 MTV Movie Awards are only 10 days away –- yes, we’re counting -– and some aca-awesome news has rolled in. Along with taking on hosting duties for the show, it’s been confirmed that Rebel Wilson will team up with her Pitch Perfect cast mates to open the show with one aca-amazing mash up!
Rebel hinted at the reunion last month when she tweeted, “I’ve been talking to the Pitch Perfect cast about reuniting for a number at MTV Movie Awards…aca-let’s CRUSH IT x.” Yes, we freaked out then and we’re freaking out now that it’s 100 percent official.

MTV confirmed that along with Rebel, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Ester Dean, Adam Devine, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee and Ben Platt will hit the stage to reprise their roles as the Barden Bellas and the Treblemakers. Um, isn’t someone pretty important missing from the list? You know... the lead actress known as Anna Kendrick? No word on whether she’ll be there or not, but since her name wasn’t in the list, we’re left kind of confused.
"I could not be more thrilled for the MTV Movie Awards to be the setting for the Pitch Perfect Bella & Treblemaker reunion," Pitch Perfect director Justin Moore told MTV. "We have something exciting in store for the MTV audience, and I know the cast and the fans are going to really enjoy our first-ever live performance!"
Along with fantastic news, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will also hit the stage to perform their new single “Can’t Hold Us” which, if you’ve heard the song, will probably be a major highlight of the night. These two performances will join Selena Gomez, taking the stage with a return to music via the new single “Come And Get It.” Forget the awards, the performances alone are pretty epic!
As the show gets closer and closer, more details on what will go down during the live show keeps coming in. Will Ferrell will receive the first-ever Comedic Genius Award because he’s awesome and all, while Emma Watson will be honored with the Trailblazer Award, which Emma Stone took last year in its first-ever bestowing.
Also, we Hunger Games fans will get our fix -- finally! The first teaser trailer for Catching Fire will be shown sometime during the show, but remember the key word in this sentence: teaser. Meaning it’ll probably be about 15 seconds or so.
Presenters are also a major part of the show, with Steve Carell, Zac Efron, Seth Rogen, Zoe Saldana, Amanda Seyfried, Melissa McCarthy, Kerry Washington, Danny McBride, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto all lined up to hand out some golden popcorn.
So, in a nutshell: the 2013 MTV Movie Awards will be filled with epic performances, super-hot presenters and a hilarious show with Rebel in charge for the evening! Voting for your favorites is still open and you can head to MTV.com to do so!
