Billboard Awards 2012: Usher, Nelly Furtado, & Kelly Clarkson Join Performer Line-Up

Published: Tuesday 1st May 2012 by Sam

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:

    I’m sure someone will be able to serve up a ball of fierceness Sam. And the performance won’t be stolen from an Artist from another country and not credited. Thank God for Youtube!

    how do you steal a performance you moron, does that even sound right, reading it back to yourself? fool!

  13. virtuoso intellect May 1, 2012

    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

  14. gio88 May 1, 2012

    always the same performer in every awards night

  15. DIGGER BEY May 1, 2012

    Well im lookin forward to seeing what Usher is going to do! People are forgetting he wemt to the School of MJ and still can bring it! Other than Usher, im just checking for Nelly and Kelly. @ Skylar U mad that even though she copied and made it one of the best performances ever! U mad lmao The b**** brung n the most viewers during her performance and they disappered after her performance! WTF! Now thats a BAD ICONIC B****!

  16. MOBWIFE May 1, 2012

    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

  17. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) May 1, 2012

    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!

  18. MOBWIFE May 1, 2012

    Oh yeah and BEYONCE SHUT IT THE HELL DOWN LAST YEAR! Haters have several –> _/_/_/_/ 🙂

  19. DIGGER BEY May 1, 2012

    LORD PLEASE let THE QUEEN perform! It would do wonders for the BBMA like last year! Also Brandy needs to perform Put It Down and one more song to promote her album! 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

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

    ————————————

    That would be Beyonce’s hologram then.

    Performance wise, nobody can touch The Queen.

  21. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) May 1, 2012

    yes , beyonce STOLE that performance’s idea from some unknown lessor european girl , is this something NEW form Beyonce ?!!

    NO ?!

    but she took it to another level and it is one of the best performances i have ever seen !! so more power to her. :mrgreen:

    yes she stole the idea , But she did GOOD and added her own twist ! so …

    time to move on …… 😡

    now i’m XD for MY king of pop. and wanna see what NELLY has in the kitchen :).

    other acts are cool , but my ass won’t be watching them TBH …… 🙂

  22. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) May 1, 2012

    from*

  23. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) May 1, 2012

    if rihanna will perform “WHYB” with a strongER choreo than in the music video , it will be something worth watching …………….

  24. Jayla May 1, 2012

    you gay men & your Beyonce obsession smh

  25. virtuoso intellect May 1, 2012

    P.S.

    watching that vid again just made me more anxious for what Bey has in store this year. I hope the filming of A Star Is Born wont take too long lol.

  26. YOOSONDALOOSE May 1, 2012

    Very exciting! Good performers!

  27. Ugh May 1, 2012

    I’m only here for “Behind these Hazel Eyes” Kelly C, “In the End” Linkin Park, and Rihanna for WHYB, new Usher would be nice. Everyone else ——> _/

  28. RICK May 1, 2012

    SUCH A YAWN FEST SO FAR
    BORING

  29. CBE May 1, 2012

    Although I would love to see chris perform I understand if he chooses not to, f*** them I wont be watching anyway, Fortune Tour!!! is what its all about.

    I feel usher is being pushed hard this year good luck to him I dont have anything against him hope he does well but when that Today Show Concert series comes on we will see who draws bigger crowds between him,Justin and Chris. LEGGO

  30. divaonthereal May 1, 2012

    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

  31. Sheltop May 1, 2012

    I agree wit my cyber boo @BEY FAN. the line up sounds quite the snooze fest. mix in gaga, chris brown, and add @JAMES list of performers and we got a show! Even add Enrique. SN: I am exited for Nelly F.

  32. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! May 1, 2012

    I guess they’re leaving the best artist to last.. only then .. will Taylor swift be added!

  33. WILD DEBUTANTE May 1, 2012

    Im looking forward to seeing Carrie Underwood, I love her.

    everyone else? Meh.

  34. MOBWIFE May 1, 2012

    @CBE

    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.

    It’s all about Ursh. The guy who actually tries to sing live unlike some other ROFL.

  37. Teacher May 1, 2012

    I’m ready to see whose performance Queen Bey is gonna be inspired by this year…

  38. Tru Voice May 2, 2012

    Will a Whitney Tribute be happening??? If not, I’ll just check for Usher then flip the channel.

  39. Doug May 3, 2012

    If Roger Waters does not win for best tour….there is something wrong…..If you see it live….you know what I mean…..Best tour show I have ever seen…..broke all attendance records for south america……
