Katy Perry will have a “Birthday” party at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. The pop superstar will give the world-premiere TV performance of her new song “Birthday” at the May 18 BBMAs in Las Vegas.
Perry, a three-time BBMA winner and a finalist in 10 categories this year, will perform via satellite from her “Prismatic World Tour.” “Birthday,” lifted from Katy’s unstoppable fourth studio album “Prism” is shaping as another huge hit and it’s currently in the top 15 on the Billboard Pop Songs Chart. Her global "Prismatic" trek will rack-up a total of 107 dates this year, with more being planned for 2015.
The American singer joins a glittering line-up of BBMA performers including the previously-announced 5 Seconds of Summer, Florida Georgia Line, Imagine Dragons, Jason Derulo, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Lorde, Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, OneRepublic, Pitbull and Ricky Martin.
Fan voting for the 2014 Milestone Award presented by Chevrolet will continue through the first two hours of the awards show, ending at 10pm ET. To vote for finalists Ellie Goulding, OneRepublic or Carrie Underwood go to billboard.com/milestone.
