Britney Spears will become the third performer to receive the Billboard Millennium Award, which “recognizes outstanding career achievements and influence in the music industry,” later this month, the Billboard Music Awards announced Monday.

The award has been given in two other instances — in 2011 to Beyonc√© and in 2012 to Whitney Houston. In addition to receiving the award, Spears will also take to the stage to perform a medley of her greatest hits.

Other performers include Justin Bieber, DNCE, The Go-Go’s, Shawn Mendes, and Nick Jonas. The 2016 Billboard Music Awards will air Sunday, May 22 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
