Billboard Music Awards 2019: Mariah Carey To Receive Icon Honor & Perform

Published: Thursday 11th Apr 2019 by Sam

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.

Details below…

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.

      Mariah has a beautiful Voice and a INCREDIBLE songwriter. Fly like a bird. Mine Again. Alone in Love. If it’s Over. Vanishing. ANY TIME YOU NEED A FRIEND. Slipping Away. I Wish You Well. She is the 2nd BIGGEST SELLING FEMALE IN HISTORY. She is finally getting all her FLOWERS while she’s here. APPLAUSE.

    And she can’t sing like Whitney Houston……her songs are bland and all air, she cannot sing….Janet sings on the same level as Mariah, weak voice but good songs, birch when Whitney was here yo I didn’t shake hands or hug the biggest diva in the world you said you glanced at Whitney

    .b**** why the f*** didn’t you get up for Whitney Houston when you first met her????

    F*** Mariah carry……glitter nothing like the bodyguard…waiting to exhale… This b itch will never have the wind like Whitney Houston may she rest in peace

        Seriously this delusional child must be a troll if he believes shading Mariah is some kind of flattery to the late, great Whitney.. Nippy LOVED Mariah and vice versa.

      STFU you money. You another dark skin ANIMAL hating on her and her accomplishments. STFU and tell you Nappy-Headed mother – she should have swallowed you.

    • Oriis Diaz April 11, 2019

      She is Irish, African American & Venezuelan. 2 marriages. Big deal. I understand not being married once pathetic but, maybe marriage isn’t for you…….

    • Shezza April 14, 2019

      What’s it matter about her personal life?! She’s an amazing singer and the award is about her music not the men she married!

    I’LL BE WATCHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Erica April 11, 2019

    She’s about to lip sync for her life

  7. Gee April 11, 2019

    This honor is very fitting she is one of the last true icons from her era, also her catalog speaks for itself her pen game has graced pop, R&B, A/C, hip hop, and gospel. Mariah is the true embodiment of what this award signifies. Congratulations MC well deserved!!!

  8. Danny Bey April 11, 2019

    I hope she performs ‘A No No’! Maybe an old
    ballad as an intro like Butterfly into A No No. That would slay

  9. Seth April 11, 2019

    Diva supreme. Much deserved

  10. SMH April 11, 2019

    Well deserved. I have my issues with Mariah, but I will say that I don’t think she really gets the recognition she deserves enough. Alot of that is her fault, choosing to market her image over her music, but her chart achievements do deserve to be celebrated just as much as the other Icons. Glad she’s getting the award.

  11. JOHNVIDAL April 11, 2019

    Literally the only good thing about awards liek the Billboards (nowadays) is when they pat homage to a real legend, like Janel, the two times Celine has been there lately, and now Mariah. Literally nothing is great about Billboard these days. Terrible and unaccurate charts.

    When it’s right it’s right, Mariah had one of the best albums of 2018, critically accalaimed RNB anthems in there. I hope she brings a lot of movement and sass to this, we need to be saved again like her 2005 Grammy Performance.

  13. Francisco Plumey April 18, 2019

    Mariah it’s an Icon and nobody can’t dennies that it’s true she can’t sing like Withney because Mariah it’s other thing theres no comparision i love Withney but Mariah it’s a voice to remember not only for it’s strong vocals but for the complexity in her harmonies and her writing skills that award it’s so well deserve yo a figther and a Superstar no matter what people said She’s always a winner!!
