5 Reasons We’re STOKED for the Billboard Music Awards

Posted on May 17, 2017

Um, the Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) are airing THIS Sunday…yes, this Sunday as in May 21st, in less than a week, and we could not be more exciteddddd. The nominations and performances seem AMAZE and we cannot wait to tune in, but in the meantime, here are the five reasons we are so stoked for this year’s show.

1. The Hosts

That’s right, our boy Ludacris is back for a fourth year in a row as host for the BBMAs. This time, joining him is Vanessa Hudgens. The two will be co-hosting the show and we cannot wait to see how they will keep us entertained all night long!

Vanessa took to her Instagram to make the official announcement, and it seems like she’s just as excited as we are!


Luda also seems thrilled to be taking on the role of “co-host” yet again!


2. Florida Georgia Line’s Performance

Not only is FGL performing at the 2017 BBMA’s but this is their FIRST time doing so, making it even more exciting!!! And besides, they will be performing with John Legend! We cannot wait to see how this group and artist will come together & we are sure it won’t be something to miss!

3. Because Drake Has 22 Noms!

That’s right, our very own Drake is leading the 2017 Billboard Music Awards with 22 nominations…yessssss! We couldn’t be happier!!! Winner or not, this is still an amazing feat, and we are anxious to see if/how many times he will take the stage that evening!

4. The Fashion

What’s one of the best parts of an award show…? The red carpet that comes beforehand #duh! Our fave celebs always look fabbbb, even sometimes sporting some out-of-the-box-crazy outfits! One artist we’re particularly excited to see on the red carpet is Halsey! She has been pulling off quite some looks lately…



We can’t wait to see how she will arrive at the show on Sunday! 🙂 And what about Nicki Minaj? She will also be performing on Sunday and has been looking smokinnnn’ at the latest events she’s been attending!



5. Halsey’s Performance

With the recent release of Halsey’s hopeless fountain kingdom, we are so excited to see her perform one of her new tracks at this year’s BBMA’s!!! We are sure her performance will be fiyaaaaaa!! Get ready for the show & listen to her album below!
