Taylor Swift to Open the 2019 Billboard Music Awards with ME!

-

dick clark productions and NBC announced today that global superstar Taylor Swift will open the 2019 Billboard Music Awards with the worldwide premiere performance of her smash hit new song “ME!” featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco.

Swift joins previously-announced performers Paula Abdul, BTS featuring Halsey, Ciara, Kelly Clarkson, Lauren Daigle, Dan + Shay, Halsey, Jonas Brothers, Tori Kelly, Khalid, Madonna and Maluma and Panic! At The Disco, plus a special performance by 2019 ICON Award recipient, Mariah Carey.

The 2019 Billboard Music Awards, with returning host Kelly Clarkson, will broadcast from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Wednesday, May 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC and will feature this year’s hottest musical acts and unexpected collaborations.

A 23-time BBMA winner – the most of any artist – Swift returns to the BBMA performance stage for the first time since 2013. Once again nominated this year, she received nods in two categories: Top Female Artist and Top Touring Artist.

Taylor Swift holds the record for the most Billboard Music Award wins, with 23. In 2018, her massive Reputation Stadium Tour made history as the highest-grossing U.S. tour ever. Swift has achieved five No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 chart — all with her previous five studio albums. Her last album, 2017’s Billboard 200 #1 reputation, sold 1.22 million copies in its first week in the U.S., making Swift the only artist to have four consecutive million-selling release weeks in Nielsen Music history. Additionally, Swift has earned 22 top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, with five of those reaching No. 1. In total, Swift’s catalog of albums and songs have sold more than 150 million copies in the U.S.




Billboard Music Awards nominees and winners are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound. The awards are based on the chart period of March 23, 2018 through March 7, 2019.
