Jennifer Lopez, who is already busy with her roles as a judge and executive producer on NBC’s “World of Dance” along with her starring role and executive producer’s job on the network’s drama series “Shades of Blue,” just added a performance on the “2018 Billboard Music Awards” to her to-do list.
The program will air live on NBC from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday, May 20, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
Lopez broke the news this morning on NBC’s “Today” show.
Lopez, the recipient of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards ICON Award, has also been doing a Las Vegas residency with her show “All I Have.”
She will join previously announced Billboard Awards performers BTS, Camila Cabello, Kelly Clarkson, Ariana Grande, John Legend, Dua Lipa, Shawn Mendes and Christina Aguilera featuring Demi Lovato.
It was also announced earlier this week that Janet Jackson will receive this year’s ICON Award. Jackson is set to take the stage for a performance of her greatest hits, marking her first performance on television in nine years.
The three-hour ceremony will be hosted by “The Voice” coach Kelly Clarkson.
