Miley Cyrus is BACK with new music and is heading to the BBMAs this month.
The multi-platinum singer/songwriter will take the stage at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards to perform her highly-anticipated new single “Malibu” for the first time to a worldwide television audience. She joins previously announced performers Camila Cabello, Celine Dion, Drake, Florida Georgia Line, Imagine Dragons, John Legend, Lorde, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran and 2017 Billboard Music Awards ICON Award recipient, Cher.
An incredibly gifted singer-songwriter, known as much for her talent as for her unconventional style, Miley has continued to push the boundaries throughout her career. She’s tallied 43 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, and is among only 15 women in the chart’s history with at least 40 charted titles. In 2013, she earned her first No. 1: “Wrecking Ball.” On the Billboard 200 albums, Cyrus has tallied five No. 1 albums, most recently with 2013’s Bangerz. In total, she has sold nearly 15 million albums in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music.
“Miley Cyrus is and always has been an artist that makes an impact. Her incredible talent and imprint on pop culture are undeniable,” said Mark Bracco, Executive Producer, 2017 Billboard Music Awards. “We are thrilled to have her debut ‘Malibu’ at the ‘2017 Billboard Music Awards’ and look forward to a raw and honest performance that will likely surprise many.”
The 2017 Billboard Music Awards will air LIVE from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 21st @ 8PM ET/5PM PT on ABC.
