Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown and Lil Wayne Added to Billboard Music Awards Line-Up


Both the former and current 'American Idol' judges and their collaborating partners Breezy and Weezy join other 2013 BMA performers.

Fresh from the news of their forthcoming collaboration for her tenth studio album, Jennifer Lopez and Chris Brown are the latest A-listers added to the 2013 Billboard Music Awards line-up. Joining them in the latest batch of performers for the May 19 ceremony to be staged at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas are rapstress Nicki Minaj and her Cash Money Records boss Lil Wayne.

Although there's no word yet whether Lopez and Brown will join forces in a single performance, Minaj and Wayne are confirmed to pair up onstage, most likely doing their "High School" track. Also set to take the stage together are newest line-up additions Ne-Yo, Akon and David Guetta, while British newcomer Ed Sheeran and "I Love It" breakthrough act Icona Pop complete the group.

Lopez and Co. become the third installment to the star-studded BMA line-up, following the announcement that the rap duo of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, pop princess Selena Gomez, Miami rapper Pitbull and his "Feel This Moment" collaborator Christina Aguilera have been confirmed to perform. Country music acts The Band Perry and Kacey Musgraves are also included together with the four artists.

Initially listed as musical performers for the awards ceremony are pop superstars Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars along with R'n'B crooner Miguel. They all share the original set of names first occupied by iconic singer Prince, who is set to receive the Billboard Icon Award during the telecast.

Comedian Tracy Morgan will serve as host for the Don Mischer-produced show.
