Ariana Grande, T-Mobile partner for special 2019 BBMAs performance

The carrier will provide fans with an inside look at the show and performance

Multi-platinum, record-breaking superstar Ariana Grande is partnering with T-Mobile for a special performance of her hit single “7 Rings” from her sold out tour stop as part of the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. The pop songstress, whose song spent six weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Pop Songs Airplay chart, marks her fourth No. 1 hit since July – the fastest any artist has collected that many No. 1 singles in the chart’s history.

The 2019 Billboard Music Awards, with returning host Kelly Clarkson, will air from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Wednesday, May 1st at 8 pm ET/PT on NBC and will feature this year’s hottest musical acts, unexpected collaborations and buzzworthy moments.

Grande joins previously announced performers Paula Abdul, BTS featuring Halsey, Ciara, Kelly Clarkson, Lauren Daigle, Dan + Shay, Halsey, Jonas Brothers, Tori Kelly, Khalid, Madonna and Maluma, Panic! At The Disco and Taylor Swift, plus a special performance by 2019 ICON Award recipient Mariah Carey.

T-Mobile will give fans more of the music they love from the BBMAs including exclusive, behind-the-scenes content and more by using #BBMAsWithUs throughout the evening.

Billboard Music Awards nominees and winners are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound. The awards are based on the chart period of March 23, 2018 through March 7, 2019. Since 1940, the Billboard charts have been the go-to guide for ranking the popularity of artists, songs and albums, and are the ultimate measure of success in music.

The 2019 Billboard Music Awards is produced by Dick Clark Productions. Mark Bracco, Barry Adelman, Kelly Clarkson and Robert Deaton are executive producers. The 2019 Billboard Music Awards are sponsored by T-Mobile and Xfinity.
