Megan Thee Stallion will performed during the BMA's
Billboard is bringing the vibes and stars with this year's Billboard Music Awards. Hosted by music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, the evening will honor the year’s top-performing artists on the Billboard Charts in 62 categories across all genres of music. The Billboard Charts have been the go-to guide for ranking the popularity of artists, songs, and albums since 1940, many look at it as the ultimate measure of success in music. For over 30 years, the BBMAs have celebrated and honored music’s greatest achievements uniquely. Unlike other award shows, finalists are determined based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, and touring not a committee or board with voting members.
As if the lineup for the 2022 Billboard Music Awards wasn’t already heavy, they have announced that a few more superstars will hit the stage. The original lineup included Burna Boy, Latto, Megan Thee Stallion, Rauw Alejandro, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as this year’s Icon Award recipient, Mary J. Blige. We can now add Florence + The Machine, Maxwell, Morgan Wallen, and Silk Sonic to the vibes.
The show is scheduled to broadcast live from coast to coast from the MGM Grand Garden Arena Las Vegas on Sunday, May 15 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on NBC and will stream live on Peacock. Additional tea about the BBMA’s including additional performers and presenters will be spilled in upcoming weeks, so stay tuned!
Tickets to attend the show are open to the public. Prices per ticket start at $90 and are available for purchase HERE. Doors open at 6:30 P.M. ET / 3:30 P.M. PT.
