Mariah Carey is confirmed to headline MTV's 20th anniversary concert, dubbed "MTV20: Live and Almost Legal," which will air live Aug. 1 on the music network from New York's Hammerstein Ballroom. Other acts on the star-studded bill include Jane's Addiction, TLC, Busta Rhymes, Mary J. Blige, Method Man, Run-DMC, Billy Idol, Sum-41, and the Neptunes.

The event will be hosted by MTV's Carson Daly, and will feature appearances by the network's five original VJs: Martha Quinn, Mark Goodman, Nina Blackwood, Alan Hunter, and JJ Jackson. Leading up to the special, MTV will air "MTV20: Buggles to Bizkit," a 12-hour block of videos and other programming culled from its first 20 years.

"The videos that will air all day on Aug. 1 helped change the way we look at music," MTV president of programming Brian Graden said in a statement. "'MTV20: Buggles to Bizkit' is the definitive list of the most important and influential music videos from the first 20 years of the medium."
