Sam Smith, Hozier, Nick Jonas to perform at Billboard Music Awards
Chrissy Teigen and Ludacris will helm next month’s Billboard Music Awards, but the show’s organizers have now announced some of the top-line talent slated to perform. Hozier, Nick Jonas, and Sam Smith will all take the stage at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena for the awards, which air Sunday, May 17 on ABC. They join a previously announced collaboration between Fall Out Boy and Wiz Khalifa, who are also touring together this summer.
Billboard released the show’s nominations last week, a list that was dominated by—big surprise—Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, and Iggy Azalea. The finalists for the awards are generated based on sales, radio airplay, streaming, touring, and social media interactions that Billboard and its collaborators, including Nielsen Music, track.
