Maren Morris, Zedd to Join 2018 Billboard Music Awards Performance Lineup
Maren Morris, Zedd and Ed Sheeran will be joining the already star-studded lineup of performers slotted to play at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards Ceremony, which will air on May 20 live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. The roster of artists scheduled to perform at the event also includes Janet Jackson, Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes and several more chart-topping artists.
The country star officially announced her plans to perform at the ceremony via Instagram and on Monday (May 14), including the caption, "BAY-BUH! We're pulling out the stops with this one. This Sunday night!"
Morris and Zedd's collaboration "The Middle" continues to find massive popularity among audiences of all stripes: Following its release in late January, the single shot to the top of the Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart in just four weeks, making Morris the first country performer to top that chart since its inception in 2003. The country icon also appeared onstage to perform the hit song in front of a packed house of electronic music fans in late April of 2018, proving once again that she knew how to captivate an audience's attention, no matter what genre of music they showed up to see.
That isn't to say that Morris is leaving country music behind, however. Her current single, "Rich," which she performed at the ACM Awards in April of 2018, is steadily climbing the country charts, and comes off of Morris' 2016 debut album, Hero. She'll be in plenty of country company during the Billboard Music Awards ceremony, as well: Chris Stapleton, Sam Hunt, Dustin Lynch and Kane Brown are all nominated for awards.
