Rihanna is using her break from her ANTI world tour to hit the stage in Las Vegas for the 2016 Billboard Music Awards. Her North American leg of the tour wraps on May 18, just three days before the Billboard Music Awards.
“See you at the #BBMAs on May 22,” Rihanna posted on Twitter and Instagram. The news comes a few weeks after her smash-hit “Work” spent nine straight weeks atop Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
Rihanna joins an action packed lineup that includes Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Fifth Harmony, Demi Lovato, Pink, and Britney Spears. Celine Dion will be the recipient of the ICON Award. Madonna will pay tribute to the late icon Prince. Ciara and Ludacris are this year’s hosts.
