Kelly Clarkson, Usher, Linkin Park and Nelly Furtado have been added to the growing list of performers for the 2012 Billboard Music Awards! They all join the previously announced performers that include Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, and Cee Lo Green, just to name a few.
All of the newly announced performers have something in common, aside from having platinum and multi-platinum albums: they all are releasing albums next month, so their performances will also serve as a form of promotion!
Usher‘s 7th studio album Looking for Myself will be released on June 12th; Nelly Furtado‘s 5th studio album The Spirit Indestructible will be released a week later on June 19th; and Linkin Park will release their album Living Things on June 26th.
The event will be held in Las Vegas, and will air live on May 20th on ABC at 8 p.m. EST (7 CST) from the MGM Grand Arena. Tickets for the 2012 Billboard Music Awards are now on sale at Ticketmaster.com and MGMGrand.com.
