Mariah Carey is an icon of a lifetime. It’s fitting, then, that the diva supreme has been unveiled as the recipient of the Icon honor at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.
The news was revealed moments ago by organizers for the May 1st ceremony.
It was also announced that Mimi, who has 18 Hot 100 #1 singles, will be hitting the stage at the MGM Grand Arena event.
Carey, who is currently in the midst of the ‘Caution World Tour,’ follows last year’s Icon honoree Janet Jackson.
Also on the performer bill for this year’s BBMAs are Normani and Sam Smith, Khalid, Kelly Clarkson, and Panic At The Disco. More names are expected in the weeks ahead.
