Bruno Mars, Miguel, Prince, More to Perform at 2013 Billboard Music Awards

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards will be turning up Las Vegas later this spring. Superstars Bruno Mars, Prince, Miguel, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift are some of the big names that will perform during the live event at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday, May 19 on ABC (8:00–11:00 pm, ET).

Bruno Mars is heading into the awards show on a hot streak. He recently earned his first number 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with Unorthodox Jukebox and last week he made history by surpassing rapper Nelly and Justin Timberlake for the most Pop Songs hits by a solo male artist.

Fresh off his Grammy win for "Best R&B Song" for the single "Adorn" off his Grammy nominated album, Kaleidoscope Dream, Miguel is another hot artist heading into the awards.

In addition to performing, pop legend Prince will be honored with the Billboard Icon Award, highlighting his contributions to music and pop culture.

More musical acts and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
