Sam Smith + Nick Jonas to Perform at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards
According to Billboard, all three male solo artists will take the stage during the May 17 show, which will air at 8 PM EST.
The fact that Sam Smith is performing isn't too surprising — even before we heard that he would be taking the stage to sing one of his hits (we're crossing our fingers for "Stay With Me") we knew that Sam was pretty much set to dominate the awards: After all, he is already a finalist in 13 award categories and was mentioned for four out of the five main categories (the same number of awards as show favorite Taylor Swift, who barely beat him out for total nods with 14 nominations).
Nick Jonas' performance isn't a big surprise either: His song "Jealous" hit the top ten and his other big hit single "Chains," from his self-titled solo album, came very close to the Top 10, peaking at number 13.
Hozier's "Take Me To Church" sat at No. 2 on the charts for multiple weeks and his album also soared to the top of the charts, topping off at the No. 2 spot. Hozier also got some good practice for this live televised performance during his set at Coachella and via an appearance on Saturday Night Live.
