We may be just a week away from the highly anticipated 2021 edition of the Billboard Music Awards, but the stops are still being pulled out to ensure this year’s ceremony is one of the best ever.
Beyond sending P!nk and Drake‘s fan bases into a frenzy with the early announcement of the prestigious awards they’re respectively set to receive at the BBMAs (as we reported here), followers of The Weeknd were thrilled when it was reported he would be among the year’s top stars rocking the stage.
Now, even more big names have been added to the performers list.
As DJ Khaled sits at #1 on the latest Billboard 200 with his new album, ‘Khaled Khaled,’ we know his fans will go crazy at news he’s tapped Academy and GRAMMY Award-winning songstress H.E.R. and GRAMMY-nominated Rap group Migos to help him perform their collective single, ‘We Goin’ Crazy,’ found on the chart-topping LP.
Elsewhere on the performance bill, K-Pop megastars BTS – just two days after the May 21-unveiling of their new English single ‘Butter’ – are set to give the tune its first televised live rendition on the BBMAs. The night could prove big for the Big Hit Entertainment group as they’re also up for Top Duo/Group, Top Social Artist, Top Song Sales Artist, and Top Selling Song honors at the show.
The newly added names help fill out a roster that already includes P!nk, The Weeknd, and Duran Duran.
You can watch the Nick Jonas-hosted 2021 Billboard Music Awards when it airs Sunday, May 23 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on NBC.
