We’re going to be suckers for these performers!
Madonna will be putting on the worldwide television premiere performance of her Spanglish collaboration with Latin superstar Maluma for their new single, “Medellín,” her first new track in four years.
The performance will mark the icon’s return to the award show performance stage with new music for the first time in nearly four years. She last performed on the Billboard Music Awards in 2016 with a tribute to Prince. (Maluma will be making his BBMAs debut.)
“See you in Vegas 😎 #BBMAs,” the boy band wrote on Instagram Friday.
PEOPLE exclusively confirmed that Lauren Daigle, Khalid, Panic! At The Disco and Sam Smith and Normani will be performing at the BBMAs. K-pop sensation BTS also were announced as performers during their history-making Saturday Night Live debut last week.
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).
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.
The 2019 Billboard Music Awards, which will once again be hosted by Kelly Clarkson, will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
