Apparently, 90210 has her number.

Carly Rae Jepsen, the Canadian pop songstress behind the ubiquitous Top 40 hit "Call Me Maybe," has gotten the call to appear on the CW drama's Season 5 premiere.

Jepsen, 26, will perform a song from her upcoming new album in the episode, in which she plays the music headliner for Adrianna's Las Vegas premiere. The gig will mark Jepsen's first series TV appearance.

"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," executive producers Patti Carr and Lara Olsen said in a statement. "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."

Thanks to both Adrianna and Dixon's ties to the music industry, 90210 has played host to a wide variety of musical acts in recent years, including Snoop Dogg, American Idol finalist Haley Reinhart and Billy Ray Cyrus.

Jepsen has held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for four straight weeks with "Call My Maybe." She is set to perform the tune at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards later this summer.

The new season of 90210 premieres on Monday, Oct. 8 at 8/7c on The CW. Are you excited to see Jepsen on 90210? Do you want her to perform "Call Me Maybe"?
