I’ll be the first to admit I am an awards show junkie… but I know I’m not the only one. The Billboard Music Awards never fail to disappoint with the highly anticipated performances, acceptance speeches, and of course the fashion! Some of last year’s leading winners included, Eminem, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Lady Gaga, all of which are nominated again for numerous awards this year. Last year’s show provided show-stopping performances from Rihanna and Britney Spears, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Neil Diamond, Keith Urban and Pitbull to name a few.

This year’s show, which will air on ABC on May 20th, is expected to blow last year’s show out of the water. As of now, confirmed performers include: Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, LMFAO and The Wanted, with more to come.
