Chris Brown Set to Perform at 2012 Billboard Music Awards
Billboard reports that Brown will join his pal Justin Bieber as well as fellow performers LMFAO, Cee Lo Green, Kelly Clarkson, Usher, possible collaborators and/or tour partners the Wanted, Nelly Furtado and more on the big night. Brown is up for several awards at the fete, including Top Male Artist and Top R&B Artist.
Brown’s performance follows an incredible show on ‘Dancing With the Stars‘ and precedes the release of his somewhat delayed followup to ‘F.A.M.E.,’ ‘Fortune,’ due July 3.
Adele, LMFAO, Brown’s ex (and possible diss track target) Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Lil Wayne are among the leading nominees for this year’s BMAs. Adele scored nominations in a whopping 18 categories, while LMFAO is close behind her with 17 nods. Rihanna is a finalist in 13 categories, while Gaga and Weezy both have 10 nominations each.
‘Modern Family’ co-stars Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen are the hosts for the Billboard Music Awards, which air live May 20 at 8 PM ET on ABC.
