More big stars are added to performer list for the upcoming Billboard Music Awards. Usher, Kelly Clarkson and Linkin Park are confirmed to take place at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Arena for live performances along with another newly-confirmed musical guest Nelly Furtado.

The 2012 Billboard Music Awards will broadcast live from the Sin City Sunday, May 20 at 8/7c on ABC. Previously-announced performers at the prize-giving event are Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, The Wanted and LMFAO.

This year, Adele receives the most nods with a total of 18 nominations. Her domination is followed by Redfoo and SkyBlu with 17. Rihanna trails behind the electro/pop duo with 13, while Lady GaGa and Lil Wayne follow with 10 each.

All of them, except for LMFAO, are vying for the coveted Top Artist along with Katy Perry. Although the "Sorry for Party Rocking" hitmakers miss the Top Artist category, they are listed as one of the contenders for Top Duo/Group.

The show is going to be hosted by "Modern Family" stars Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell.
