Nicki Minaj To Perform At Ken Jeong-Hosted Billboard Music Awards

|

It’s been five years since they’ve done a TV broadcast of the Billboard Music Awards, which might be why they couldn’t get a bigger name than the admittedly awesome Ken Jeong (Community, The Hangover) to host the resurrected ceremony next month on ABC. But as far as musical acts go, the show isn’t hurting for celebs. Nicki Minaj and Cee-Lo have just been added to a line-up that already included Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Antebellum and Keith Urban.

Rihanna is up against Taylor Swift, Eminem, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber for Top Artist at the ceremony, though there’s no word yet if the four not named Rihanna will actually be attending. But with Nicki on hand, we might not even miss Gaga when the show airs May 22nd.
