London - Nelly Furtado has landed a role in '90210'.

The 'Big Hoops (Bigger The Better)' singer - who has previously appeared on the small screen in 'Roswell' and 'One Life to Live' - will be performing in the episode, which will air in November, E! News reports.

Carmen Electra is also in the next series on the show on its 100th episode, playing a character called Vesta, who is a cross between Dita Von Teese and a Pussycat Doll, according to PerezHilton.com.

The Canadian singer and the former 'Baywatch' actress are the latest in a number of high-profile stars to appear in past installments of the series, including Billy Ray Cyrus and Kellie Pickler.

Other musicians to have appeared in the show include Snoop Dogg, DJ Samantha Ronson - who is best known for dating Lindsay Lohan - and Christina Aguilera. Carly Rae Jepsen will be appearing in the first episode for the season five of '90210' - which also stars Jessica Lowndes, AnnaLynne McCord and Michael Steger - to be shown on October 8.

Speaking of the decision to have Carly involved, executive producers Patti Carr and Lara Olsen said: "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." - Bang Showbiz
