Travis Scott To Perform On 'Billboard' Music Awards


Travis Scott will perform Sunday on the Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs), it was announced Monday.

It will mark the first time the rapper has appeared at an awards show since last November’s fatal crowd surge at his Astroworld Festival in Houston. Scott returned to the spotlight this past weekend with a set at a Miami club.

Also joining the BBMAs line-up is Ed Sheeran – with a pre-taped performance from Belfast, where he does concerts on Thursday and Friday – as well as Becky G and Elle King with Miranda Lambert.

Previously announced performers include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Silk Sonic, Morgan Wallen, Burna Boy, Megan Thee Stallion and Florence + The Machine.
