The 2020 Billboard Music Awards are just two weeks away, and Billboard can reveal the first round of performers set to hit the stage on Oct. 14.

After eight years, Alicia Keys will make her long-awaited return to the BBMAs stage at this year's show with a performance from her newly-released, self-titled seventh album Alicia, after last wowing the BBMAs audience back in 2012 with Stevie Wonder.

Joining Keys on the docket will be a number of inaugural BBMAs performers including Luke Combs, Bad Bunny and Post Malone, the latter of whom leads this year's crop of artists with 14 nominations.

Meanwhile, Combs -- who took home top country artist at last year's ceremony -- and Bad Bunny are each in the running in four categories within their respective genres.

As previously announced, Garth Brooks will also be taking the stage as this year's ICON Award recipient, following in the footsteps of previous awardees Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Cher, Celine Dion and more.

And that's not all -- expect more performers to be announced as the awards show's big day draws closer.

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards will air on Oct. 14 at 8:00 p.m. ET, live from Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre on NBC, with Kelly Clarkson returning for her third year as the evening's host.
