Billboard has confirmed that Usher Raymond aka ‘Mr. Entertainment’ will perform at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. Also set to hit the stage are Nelly Furtado, Kelly Clarkston and Linkin Park.

The show will air live from the Las Vegas MGM Grand Arena on May 20 at 8pm on ABC. Usher will be in good company along with other confirmed acts including his protégé Justin Beiber, Carrie Underwood, and CeeLo Green.

It has not been reported yet what song Usher will perform but I’m sure it will be one of  the three latest releases from his highly anticipated seventh studio album.

So far, the top leading nominees include Adele, LMFAO, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Lil Wayne. This year’s show will be hosted by Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell of ABC’s “Modern Family.”

Don’t forget to pick up Usher’s new CD, Looking for Myself when it arrives in stores on June 12.
