Macklemore, Salt-N-Pepa to Perform at 2018 Billboard Music Awards
We're just a little over a week away from the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, which follows in the footsteps of last year's thrilling evening, and the performance lineup looks pretty stacked. Earlier today (May 11), Billboard announced that Macklemore will be taking the stage at the ceremony on May 20, along with Salt-N-Pepa and many other major and veteran names.
The 2012 XXL Freshman will be performing his powerful single "Good Old Days" with singer Ke$ha that released last year, which previously debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard's Digital Song Sales chart.
According to Billboard, Salt-N-Pepa will be teaming up with En Vogue for a celebration performance of the 30th anniversary of becoming the first female rap artists to hit the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The female group's famous “Push It" record became the first rap song by a female act to hit the Top 40 of the Hot 100 in 1987. In 1994, Salt-N-Pepa later joined En Vogue for their "Whatta Man" single in 1994, which peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100.
Along with Macklemore and Salt-N-Pepa, the 2018 Billboard Music Awards will also feature performances from Camila Cabello, BTS, Ariana Grande, John Legend, Dua Lipa, Jennifer Lopez, Shawn Mendes and Christina Aguilera featuring Demi Lovato. Janet Jackson will also be honored during the evening, as she is slated to receive this year's ICON Award.
The ceremony is set to go down at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. on Sun., May 20 at 8 P.M. EST/5 P.M. PST.
