Pop royalty will be getting their due praises at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards according to recent reports.
Airing live from the Las Vegas MGM Grand Casino, allegedly feuding pop icons Madonna and Prince are set to be the night's honorees amidst a star studded performance lineup that will see the latter show off one of his latest hits.
“Madonna will be honored with the Top Touring Artist award at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards, an achievement earned by the worldwide success of her MDNA tour.
The sold out 88-date run was 2012's top-grossing tour with $305 million. [She] will take the stage to accept her award, with superstars from Prince to Taylor Swift to Lil Wayne set to perform. Other performers joining the ceremony include Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Miguel, Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez, the Band Perry, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Chris Brown, Ed Sheeran, Akon, Ne-Yo, David Guetta and Icona Pop.'
Congratulations are most certainly due to the Queen of Pop and pop icon who, along with Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, and Whitney Houston, pioneered a pop revolution (and evolution) in the 1980s. And, to this day, are still showing the young'ns how it's done.
The Tracy Morgan-hosted 2013 Billboard Music Awards will air Sunday, May 19 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
