The Billboard Music Awards ceremony will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas @BBMAs
Billboard magazine has everything ready for its grand gala for the 2022 Billboard Music Awards, which will take place this Sunday, May 15 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The Weeknd is expected to be the figure of the night, as he comes in as the artist with the most nominations. But celebrities like Silk Sonic, Ed Sheeran and Becky G will also make an appearance.
To trace the entire poster, Billboard was by dropper announcing each international star who would parade on the stage of one of the great parties of the American music industry. Yet this week the participation of Travis Scott, Ed Sheeran, Becky G, Elle King and Miranda Lambert was confirmed.
They join the first confirmations that were announced weeks ago: Silk Sonic, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Morgan Wallen Burna Boy, Florence and the Machine, Lato, Maxwell, Megan Thee Stallion and Raw Alejandro.
In addition, Mary J. Blige will receive the Billboard Icon Award for her music career, in recognition of her career dedicated to music and one full of successes that will be remembered during the awards ceremony presented by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs.
