We’re going to be suckers for these performers!

Madonna and the Jonas Brothers will be making their big returns to the award show scene as both are set to take the stage at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on May 1.

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.

“Madame ❌ is rehearsing for something special,” she tweeted on Friday, referencing the name of her upcoming album, her first 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.)

Meanwhile, Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas will perform their smash hit “Sucker,” marking their first televised award show performance in 10 years.

“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.
