In a genre prone to featuring some kind of ‘hip’ venue where new bands and celebrity performers can feature (think The Bronze, P3, The Icehouse etc.), 90210 has taken the biscuit lately. Instead of getting all their music points through incidental soundtracks a la Gossip Girl, they continue to champion live music, with the latest to book an appearance fresh face Carly Rae Jepsen.
She’ll perform a song of her debut album, as the headliner at Adrianna’s Las Vegas gig, but the show in interrupted when the character finds out about Dixon’s car accident in fourth season finale. The shows executive producers Patti Carr and Lara Olsen said:
“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. 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.” [TV Line]
