The 2019 Billboard Music Awards will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC
The big announcement was made during the group’s Saturday Night Live debut, which featured host Emma Stone.
BTS is set to perform their hit “Boy With Luv” with Halsey, who did not join the boy band for their SNL appearance. At last year’s show, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook performed their single “Fake Love” for the first time on television.
No doubt May 1 will be a big night for the K-pop sensation as they are once again nominated for top social artist, having won that category for the past two years. BTS also earned their first nod for top duo/group.
PEOPLE exclusively confirmed that Lauren Daigle, Khalid, Panic! At The Disco and Sam Smith and Normani will be performing at the BBMAs.
Carey is only the eighth artist to ever receive the icon award at the Billboard Music Awards, following: Neil Diamond (2011), Stevie Wonder (2012), Prince (2013), Jennifer Lopez (2014), Céline Dion (2016), Cher (2017) and Janet Jackson (2018).
Kelly Clarkson will return as host and is set to perform a new single.
Among the nominations this year — which were announced earlier this month — Cardi B leads the pack with 21 nods (including top artist) and is followed by Drake and Post Malone with 17 nominations each. Other nominees with multiple nods include Ariana Grande, Travis Scott and late rapper XXXTentacion.
Taylor Swift, who holds the most wins by an artist of all time, could beat her own record of 23 if she wins either award she is nominated for in the top female artist or top touring artist categories.
