Simon Cowell, Usher, Carrie Underwood and a hologram of Adam Levine are just a few of the music industry cameos featured in the red band trailer.

Lonely Island — the comedy trio made up of Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone — have released the first trailer for their music industry satire Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. 

Samberg stars as Conner4Real, a pop star reminiscent of the worst parts of Justin Bieber who will do anything to bounce back from the the poor sales of his latest record.

A-list cameos abound in the red band trailer, including Sarah Silverman as Conner's publicist, Bill Hader as his groupie, Imogen Poots as his girlfriend and Will Forte as his bagpiper. Simon Cowell, Carrie Underwood, Usher, Snoop Dogg, Pink, Seal and a hologram of Adam Levine also make appearances. 

In the words of Conner: "It take a village to make me look dope."
 
Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping hits theaters on June 3.
