Performers for the 2020 Billboard Music Awards have been announced by dick clark productions and NBC. The list includes Post Malone, this year’s most-nominated artist, along with Alicia Keys, Luke Combs, and Bad Bunny. No word yet if those performances will be live or pre-recorded due to the coronavirus pandemic.
I still remember when I first started radio in Philly and they brought Alicia Keys in for an interview. At the time I was working part time (so I wasn’t really allowed to hang out when artist visited the studio). As I was walking out I heard her singing a little bit in the hallway and her voice back then was incredible. You just kind of knew she was going to be a huge star! I just found this video someone posted of 16year old Alicia Keys performing live.
Have you ever been first on an artist? Maybe you saw them live at some rundown bar or theatre. You could’ve even just discovered them on YouTube or Soundcloud.
Here are some more great billboard artist performances from the 90’s! The Billboard Music Awards, hosted by Kelly Clarkson, will broadcast live on October 14th from The Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
