Sugababes are to perform with Slumdog Millionaire composer A. R. Rahman at the Indian Premier League Awards.

The Bollywood star and 'Jai Ho' producer will appear with the group at the grand finale of the awards show, which celebrates the cream of the crop in Bollywood talent.

"The IPL Awards is the crowning jewel to recognise the best of this season," said IPL chairman Lalit Modi.

Heidi Range tweeted her excitement about the performance earlier in the week, saying: "What started off as a really lovely morning has just been interrupted by getting injections for our trip next week, but INDIA here we come! X"

Range recently ended speculation that Sugababes were splitting up.

Sonu and the Sugababes!

The Sugababes are coming to Mumbai. This hot English female pop group from London will perform live at the IPL on April 25th. But there’s something else on their agenda, too — they will be recording with Sonu Nigam.

Sonu’s ready with three tracks that he has composed himself. He will record one of them with the Sugababes. “The tracks are totally mainstream,” says Sonu. Talking about the collaboration, he says, “Their music is really good. I did a lot of study on their kind of music and with my programming team, we’ve come up with three tracks.”

The Guinness Book of World Records has named the Sugababes as the most successful female act of the 21st century, thanks to seven UK No. 1 singles and 18 UK Top 10 hits. Sonu is naturally excited about this collaboration and he’s also enjoying his new role as a singer-cum-composer. “Until recently, I was just a singer, but now I’m really enjoying making music along with singing. I have always been interested in music, gadgets, software and now it’s coming to my help,” he says.

And since he’s going global, was there any special preparation? “I did a lot of research on the contemporary music scenario. I spent time upgrading my sound sense and I feel now I’m able to get the kind of sound which is acceptable worldover,” he says. Music apart, will the video with the Sugababes be quite a bold one? “It’s going to be very interesting for me and the Sugababes,” smiles Sonu.
