With 19 days to go before 2012 Billboard Music Awards, the show’s performer line-up has been given quite the boost.

For, a quad of major names -led by Usher- have joined the list of those taking to the stage at one of music’s biggest calender nights.

Full story below…

The show’s organisers announced moments ago that the ‘Climax’ singer (whose new album ‘Looking For Myself’ drops next month), along with Kelly Clarkson, Nelly Furtado, and Linkin Park are all set to rock the stage at the MGM Grand Las Vegas.

Airing live on ABC on May 20th, previous performers for the Pop extravaganza include Justin Bieber, Cee-Lo Green, The Wanted, and Carrie Underwood.

*******

Here’s hoping someone, anyone is able to serve up a ball of fierceness that was this on last year’s show:

Your thoughts?

    im looking forward to the wanted and Carrie Underwood. Usher is starting to grow on me again. He is enough a vocalist to pull off climax live but im sure he’ll go with his more uptempo material and have an army of dancers behind him.

    what is Ceelo gonna perform? forget you has been forgotten

    if Bey would be a dear and give us a notched up performance of end of time, then we know for sure the slayage of run the world last year can be matched or even surpassed

    dunno if Gaga will make it cus of her tour. i dont think it is necessary for her to perform though, just enjoy the cocktail and take home your gongs, she’s a shoe in for that dance/electronica category

    lawd if Adele and Rihanna get up on that stage performing the same song they’ve been performing for the umpteenth time kiiiiiii

    YAWN…………….ZZZZZZZZZZZ! Wake me when they get to the actual entertainment! :-)

    Listen, if Nelly Furtado isn’t singing “Say It Right” & Kelly Clarkson “Because Of You” , they both can have several –> _/ _/ Especially Kelly singing “Stronger” sounding just like P!nk when this chick (Kelly C) can actually sing. :-(

    Unfortunately, I don’t expect either Chris Brown or Rihanna to be performing after the stunt Billboard pull with those “open letters”. They had some nerve! I’ve yet to see Madonna being berated about her attire or marriage to that ABUSIVE FREAK Sean Penn! And when is the fake media (i.e. Billboard Mag) going to get to ACTUAL ABUSERS OF WOMEN like Alan Jackson, Rodney Atkins, Eminem, JayZ, Dr. Dre, Ozzy Osbourne,Tommy Lee, Nicki Sixx, Vince Neil, Glen Campbell, & Toby Keith to name a few? Where are the “open letters” to them and the many women they’ve beaten? I’m just curious! *serious side – f**king – eye* and a ummm

    Out of those names I’m only excited for Nelly Furtado! I love Kelly too, but she’s not the kind of artist that brings it on award shows!!

    Now where the hell is Christina Aguilera and where is her lead single?? I can be patient because I know that when the album is out, she’ll shut it DOWN, but I was hoping she would premiere it in the semi-finals of ‘The Voice’ and then perform it at the BBMA’s a week after!! That would be the perfect comeback!! I hope more names are added to the list!

And that Diva Ms. Kelly need to bless us with some new material, hopefully from her new era. My three favs all on one show performing! #SLAYAGE

    I’m always watching the awards show mainely because they have one the worlds greatest star performing(Beyonce). Well this year I probably won’t be watching because I don’t think Beyonce will perform this year. Now whether she performs or not, to get me to tune in they need to get a performance from Brandy, Monica, Christina, Kelly Rowland,Chris Brown, Ushser

    Well RCA did push Chris’ CD back to give Usher the chance to get top billing. Had Chris known they were going to do that, he could have performed on the Today Show in July after Fortune was released. RCA is only concerned about Usher. I hope Chris joins Ciara over at EPIC or finds a music home where he can be considered.
