A ca heck yeah. The cast of "Pitch Perfect" is gathering on stage for a first-ever live musical mash-up.

Rebel Wilson, host of the MTV Movie Awards, is summoning her Barden Bellas a cappella group to compete against those rascally Treblemakers at the upcoming awards show.

Anna Camp, Esther Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, and Brittany Snow (aw, but where's Anna Kendrick!?) will be doing battle with Wilson against the likes of Adam DeVine, Ben Platt, and Skylar Astin.

"We have something exciting in store for the MTV audience, and I know the cast and the fans are going to really enjoy our first-ever live performance!" the film's director Jason Moore said in a statement released by MTV.

"Pitch Perfect" sang itself into four MTV Movie Award nominations this year, including “Best Female” and “Best Breakthrough Performances” (Wilson), “Best Musical Moment” (Kendrick, Wilson, Camp, Snow, Knapp, Dean, and Mae Lee), and “Best WTF Moment” (Camp, Hack-Appella). (Really Anna Kendrick? You couldn't bother to do a ditty with your girls? You're nominated!)

The show airs Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
