Kanye West + Nicki Minaj Will Perform at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards
West will close out Sunday’s (May 17) show with material from his upcoming album, the recently renamed Swish. It will mark the rapper's first time ever performing at the Billboard Awards.
Minaj will also take the stage at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena to play her latest The Prinkprint single “The Night Is Still Young,” along with “Hey Mama,” her collaboration with David Guetta. You can watch it all go down when the show airs on ABC at 8PM ET on Sunday.
The Billboard Awards will be co-hosted by Chrissy Teigen and Ludacris. West and Minaj will join an already star-studded list of acts that includes Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth, Nick Jonas, Imagine Dragons, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and more. Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea are set to debut their new single, “Pretty Girls” at the Sunday awards show, while Mariah Carey will also make an appearance -- her first Billbaord performance in 17 years.
Taylor Swift won’t be attending the Billboard Music Awards as a performer, but the 1989 singer does have something big in store for fans -- she’s set to debut the music video for her latest single “Bad Blood” during the show. The pop superstar has steadily built up anticipation for the Sin City-esque clip by previewing its stars, which not-so-coincidently include a bunch of her friends: Jessica Alba, Karlie Kloss, Kendrick Lamar, Lena Dunham and others.
