The Billboard Music Awards are on Sunday!

If you can't be in Las Vegas to witness the show in person (like me), you can watch it Sunday on ABC15 (like I'll be doing!).

It's looking to be a great show. Nick Jonas and Tove Lo will perform. His touring co-star will Demi Lovato is also performing, along with Fifth Harmony, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Meghan Trainor and DNCE, among others.

But, these are the top 5 biggest moments we are most looking forward too!


Good thing the Billboard Music Awards are hosted in Las Vegas because Britney Spears it practically down the street. Actually, she's at Planet Hollywood. But, on Sunday, she'll be at T-Mobile Arena for the BBMAs. And she's the opening act. Spears will be performing a medley of her greatest hits. So, if you're a fan, time to dust off those old CDs and freshen up those lips because you'll be doing some serious lip-syncing with Britney on Sunday. She's also receiving the Millennium Award, a big honor.


When news broke of Prince's death, the world stopped for a moment it seemed. Celebrities and music artists flooded social media, as did his biggest fans. So much that for the youngsters who may not have known who Prince was at the time, well, you do now.

Of course, Prince had to be a part of the show. But how? Well, it was announced that Madonna would deliver a tribute to Prince during the show. The exact details on what that entails haven't been released but we're really hoping it turns out well--it has to be good...for the fans. For Prince.


She's in. She's out. And she's back in. Ke$ha's performance at the Billboard Music Awards was up in the air for a short time due to her ongoing legal battle with her producer. But, we now know that it was approved, according to Billboard, and that she will be performing. One caveat, she can't use the performance to make a statement about her ongoing legal battles. We'll have to see what happens!


If you're in to celebrity relationships then you already know Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton were together. And you know everyone is talking about it.  Well, your heart can melt a little more because the couple is set to duet "Go Ahead And Break My Heat," the song they wrote together (awww!). *rolls eyes*. 

Either way, we'll be watching!


Any performance with P!nk is a good one. So it's a no brainer that this is one to watch during the BBMAs. She's going to be performing her new song, "Just Like Fire," which is featured in the new movie, Alice Through The Looking Glass.


The show airs Sunday at 7 p.m. on ABC15! We'll be tweeting with a bunch of Valley radio DJs throughout the show. You can join us. Use the hashtag #BillboardAZ on Twitter. We want to hear which performances you liked, the ones you didn't, and any weird or crazy moments you notice, etc.

Watch the Billboard Music Awards Sunday, May 22, on ABC15.
