SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) _ Ricky Martin will perform during the televised Miss Universe pageant hosted on his home island next month, pageant organizers announced Wednesday.

Martin will perform two songs during the live telecast on May 11, the Miss Universe Organization announced in a statement. The pageant is taking place in the San Juan suburb of Bayamon.

Martin, whose latest album is ``Sound Loaded,'' was nominated for a Grammy this year for the best male pop vocal for the single ``She Bangs.''
