Who’s performing, hosting and the right way to watch


The Billboard Music Awards will help to tie a bow on the 2022 awards season Sunday night.

For the second 12 months in a row, The Weeknd leads the nominations with 17 possibilities at a trophy. His future touring partner, Doja Cat, is true behind him with 14 nods.

The 2 have had a serious 12 months with highly acclaimed sets at Coachella last month.

Performance-wise, Machine Gun Kelly and Dan + Shay will step in for Red Hot Chili Pepper, who dropped out of the show on account of “unexpected circumstances.”

Travis Scott and Morgan Wallen, who many individuals have “canceled” over the past 12 months, can even make their mainstream comebacks.

As of 4 p.m. Friday, a Billboard poll showed fans are most looking forward to Wallen’s performance.

Meanwhile, Sean “Diddy” Combs, the show’s host, “demanded” to see Scott perform Sunday night.

“Travis went through a tragedy; Morgan [used the N-word] while talking to his boy. People make mistakes” Diddy told Billboard. “Now we’re moving on with love and respect for everyone that was hurt or affected. It’s time to forgive.”

As for his own musical number, the “I’ll Be Missing You” rapper promised, “You’re definitely going to see a step or two; whatever I’ve got to do.”
