The “2015 Billboard Music Awards” Returns to ABC Sunday, May 17th at 8pm ET Live From the MGM Grand Garden Arena



SANTA MONICA, CA (April 22, 2015) – Billboard and dick clark productions announced today that music superstar Britney Spears will return to the global television stage for a must-see performance of her new single, “Pretty Girls” featuring Iggy Azalea on the “2015 Billboard Music Awards.” The two singers join an already star-studded lineup of previously announced musical performers that includes Kelly Clarkson, Fall Out Boy featuring Wiz Khalifa, Hozier, Nick Jonas, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, and Meghan Trainor & John Legend. This year’s show will be hosted by Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen and broadcast LIVE from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 17, on ABC from 8:00 PM–11:00 PM ET.

Fun performer facts include:
• Six-time Billboard Music Award winner Britney Spears has charted six No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 and five No. 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100. Among her hit singles are the No. 1 smashes "…Baby One More Time," "Womanizer," "3" and "Hold It Against Me." She has sold 33.1 million albums in the United States, according to Nielsen Music.
• In the past year, Iggy Azalea became the first act since The Beatles to chart at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with their first two hits. Those songs -- "Fancy," and Ariana Grande's "Problem," featuring Azalea -- were the first of six top 40 hits for the rapper, who later scored with tracks like "Black Widow" and "Beg for It." When Azalea's debut album The New Classic debuted on the Billboard 200 chart, it was the highest-charting rap album by a woman in nearly three years. This year, Iggy is a finalist in 11 categories with 12 entries, competing against herself for Top Rap Song for her hits “Fancy” featuring Charli XCX and “Black Widow” featuring Rita Ora.
