Cher will receive the Billboard Icon Award and perform “Believe,” one of the biggest hits of her career. It’ll be her first awards show performance in over 15 years.
According to this tweet from the BBMAs themselves, David Guetta will open the 2017 Billboard Music Awards with a performance of his new single “Light Up My Body,” which also features Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne.
Saturday night (May 20) in Las Vegas, fans in Las Vegas captured video footage of Drake rehearsing for his BBMAs performance inside the world-famous Fountains of Bellagio at the Bellagio Hotel, suggesting that the rapper’s performance will be there, instead of inside T-Mobile arena.
On a platform inside the fountain, a white-clad Drake ran through More Life’s “Gyalchester” (fitting since it’s about money and running the game) while synchronized spurts of pyro blasted off around him — all while the lights and waters of the Bellagio fountains went through their visually stunning nightly dance.
