What You Need To Know About The Billboard Music Awards

The party to be at this weekend is going down at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The Billboard Music Awards are back Sunday night and it's going to be HUGE.

Here is everything we should be expecting from the event!

The show has been hosted by Ludacris since 2014 and this year is no different. Except, he has a new beautiful co-host, Vanessa Hudgens.

The one and only Nicki Minaj is opening the show with the ultimate #MinajMedley.

The line-up is basically making this the best concert of the year. Some of the performances include Camila Cabello, The Chainsmokers, Drake, Miley Cyrus (like hello Malibu), Halsey, Lorde, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Nicki Minaj, Sam Hunt, and even a collaboration with Florida Georgia Line and John Legend!

Celine Dion will definitely be a show stopper as she celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Titanic hit 'My Heart Will Go On' by performing the song live!

Speaking of show stoppers, Cher will perform 'Believe' and will be receiving the 'Billboard Icon' Award.

And of course, what's an award show without any awards? Drake and The Chainsmokers are running the nominees list with 22 nominations, with Twenty One pilots behind them with 17, followed by Rihanna with 14.

You can see the full list of categories and nominees here.

The show airs Sunday at 8 pm on ABC!
