Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is hosting the evening, exactly 25 years since he won his first Billboard Music Award in 1997 for his multi-platinum album No Way Out.
The evening will honor the year’s top performing artists on the Billboard Charts across all genres of music and showcase spectacular performances and surprise collaborations.
Among the musical acts confirmed is Travis Scott, who will be making his first TV appearance since his deadly Astroworld festival last year that left 10 fans dead.
Scott will be joined by a host of other performers on the evening, including Megan Thee Stallion, Ed Sheeran, Becky G, Elle King, Florence + The Machine, Maxwell, Morgan Wallen, and Silk Sonic.
As previously announced, Mary J. Blige will receive the distinguished Billboard Icon Award at the star-studded soiree.
As a part of the recognition, the ten-time BBMA winner will take the stage for a breathtaking performance that will make for one of the most memorable moments of the evening.

Blige, 51, joins just ten other artists to ever receive the prestigious Billboard Icon Award, which recognizes outstanding artists who have achieved excellence on the Billboard Charts and have made an indelible mark on music itself.
Since the award’s inauguration in 2011, past recipients include Neil Diamond, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, Cher, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Garth Brooks, and P!NK.
‘My career has been such an incredible and unexpected journey that has included many turns into avenues I never could have imagined like acting, producing, launching businesses and now even my own music festival,’ said Blige.
‘Through it all, I always one way or another gravitated back to my first love, music. To be recognized in this way at this moment, with the Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards, is an incredible honor and one that I am truly humbled by.’
This year’s awards are based on the chart period of April 10, 2021 through March 26, 2022.
Billboard Music Awards finalists and winners are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, and touring.
Since 1940, the Billboard Charts have been the go-to guide for ranking the popularity of artists, songs, and albums, and are the ultimate measure of success in music.
The BBMAs broadcasts live coast-to-coast from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 15 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on NBC and streams live on Peacock.
