The 2023 Billboard Music Awards is being held today, November 19, and it’s not your typical awards show. This year, Billboard is featuring a revamped format.
Rather than a single arena, the ceremony will feature performances and acceptance speeches “in global locations, in the midst of sold-out tours, and in custom venues,” the producers say.

The performances include Wallen singing “98 Braves” from the Atlanta Braves’ home field, Truist Park in Atlanta.
Carey will give a performance of “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which will mark the first time the holiday perennial has ever been performed on an awards show.
Peso Pluma’s performance of “Rubicón” will include a special guest appearance by boxing legend Mike Tyson, who is a self-declared Pluma superfan.
McRae will make her BBMAs debut by performing her hit “greedy,” and Rexha and Guetta will perform “I’m Good (Blue)” and “One in a Million.”
Stray Kids will make their BBMAs debut with an action-packed performance featuring two of their hit singles, “S-Class” and “LALALALA.”
