Panic At The Disco, Snoop Dogg launch MTV programme

Pete Wentz hosts weekly 'FN MTV'

Panic! At The Disco will be joined on stage by Snoop Dogg as the first performers on a new weekly music programme hosted by Fall Out Boy‘s Pete Wentz.

‘FN MTV’ premieres tomorrow (June 13) at 8pm PST/EST on MTV, and features a live performance from Panic! At The Disco as well as video premieres from Snoop Dogg, The Ting Tings, The Pussycat Dolls and Flo-Rida, who will all be on-hand to introduce their videos.

Viewers can vote on the videos and upload their own re-imagined versions of them to the web.

“Having people interact with anything we’re doing makes us feel complete as a band,” Ting TingsJules De Martino told NME.COM. “It’s very much about creating new ways people can get involved.”

The Ting Tings‘Shut Up And Let Me Go’ video will premiere tomorrow. “We wanted to make a Kung Fu video because we’ve been watching a lot of Stephen Chow videos like ‘Kung Fu Hustle’,” De Martino explained. “We’re also into using a lot of layers, shapes and colours.”

The programme is scheduled to air on MTV every Friday night throughout the summer. Next week’s show will feature Vampire Weekend and Duffy.

“We’re bringing music videos back to MTV on a Friday night,” Wentz said. “I was raised on music videos, they made me who I am today,” he added.

The premiere programme will also feature a spoof segment in which Snoop Dogg gives Wentz and his new bride Ashlee Simpson tips on how to raise their forthcoming child, including putting the baby’s crib in the garage so it doesn’t wake them and nursing the baby with malt liquor.
