SANTA MONICA, CA (April 24, 2018) – dick clark productions and NBC announced today that global sensation and reigning Top Social Artist winners BTS, will perform the world television premiere of their new single at the “2018 Billboard Music Awards.”

The Korean pop band, who just announced their highly anticipated new album, “Love Yourself: Tear,” will join previously announced performers Camila Cabello, Dua Lipa and Shawn Mendes on a night filled with music’s biggest names.

Hosted by “The Voice” coach Kelly Clarkson, the “2018 Billboard Music Awards” will broadcast live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 20 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on NBC. The three-hour telecast will feature performances from this year’s hottest musical acts, unexpected collaborations and buzzworthy moments that celebrate 60 years of the Billboard Hot 100.

BTS Billboard Chart Facts:

  • Billboard Music Award-winning BTS, who are nominated for Top Social Artist this year, scored its first top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart in October with “Love Yourself: Her” — earning both the highest-charting album ever on the chart by a K-pop act, and the genre’s biggest sales week. Since then, the seven-member group tallied its first top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Mic Drop,” featuring Desiigner. BTS has also spent more than 70 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Social 50 chart, which ranks the most popular music artists across the world’s social networks. Collectively, BTS’ albums have earned 1 million equivalent album units in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music, and the group’s catalog of songs have collected nearly 2 billion on-demand streams.

Nominations for the “2018 Billboard Music Awards” were announced earlier this month on NBC’s “Today” and on a livestream from Billboard’s New York office. Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran tie for the most nominations this year with 15 each.

Voting for the two fan-voted categories — Billboard Chart Achievement Award and Top Social Artist — will open in the coming weeks and additional details will be available soon.

“Billboard Music Awards” nominees 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 finalists and award winners are determined using data reflecting a 12-month tracking period.  The awards are based on the reporting period of April 8, 2017 through March 31, 2018. Since 1940, the Billboard charts have been the go-to guide for ranking the popularity of artists, songs and albums, and are the ultimate measure of success in music.
