Detroit rapper Eminem

April 16, 2009


Eminem will perform at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, the music channel just announced. The show, which is MTV’s mostly humorous take on Hollywood’s big flicks, is scheduled to air live at 9 p.m. May 31 from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif.

Em’s performance at the Movie Awards, his first on MTV since his 2006 appearance on the now defunct “TRL,” will follow the May 19 release of his new album “Relapse,” his first full-length album of solo material since 2004’s “Encore.”

Eminem’s last performance at the MTV Movie Awards was in 2005, where he performed “Ass Like That” and “Mockingbird” — two singles from “Encore.”
