It's the biggest hookup of the century and in the immortal words of Pauly D, "There will be no grenades tonight!"

After wrapping up filming season five of Jersey Shore, Pauly will be heading out with Spears as her opening act, getting the party pumping with his signature beats.

DJ Pauly D Hooks Up With Britney Spears

"It's official! @DJPaulyD will be joining @BritneySpears on select dates of her Femme Fatale Tour!"

And so came the announcement that sent the Twitterverse into a tailspin! Reality television star Pauly D, who is also the DJ-in-residence at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, will head out with none other than Britney Spears, for her Femme Fatale tour this summer.

This tour is a comeback for Britney, who scored several hits off her latest CD, after a train wreck two years ago where her career looked as if it would never recover. What better way to gain media and fan interest than to put the hottest guy on MTV's Jersey Shore together with the former princess of MTV for some special shows?

Said Pauly of the hookup, "Britney is one of my favorite performers. I am so excited to be performing on the Britney Spears Femme Fatale tour. She is certainly one of this generation's most influential artists. It's an amazing platform to connect with my fans around the country."

He continued, "What it means to DJ a concert like a Britney Spears concert or something like that, it's an association with monsters like Britney Spears and it just legitimizes your career. And it's just fun being onstage with her performing. I couldn't ask for more."

But don't expect Pauly to be spinning any Spears tracks during his stint as her opening act. Better to leave the songs to the professionals. Said Pauly in a statement, "A DJ should not play the artist's songs at her concert 'cause she has to perform these songs. I'm not going to be playing any Britney before she performs, maybe after. I'll let her perform, let her shine, 'cause it's her night."

Pauly "D" DelVecchio will be wrapping up his time at Seaside Heights on the Jersey Shore, filming season five of the hit series, this August.

The dates are as follows:

August 17, Grand Rapids, MI at the Van Andel Arena
August 19, Pittsburgh, PA at the CONSOL Energy Center
August 20, Columbus, OH at Nationwide Arena
August 22, Indianapolis, IN at Conseco Fieldhouse
August 24, Raleigh, NC at RBC Center
August 25, Charlotte, SC at Time Warner Cable Center
