It's finally May and you know what that means...the Billboard Music Awards are right around the corner! Last month the magazine revealed the nominees for this year's awards and we anticipate The WeekndJustin BieberDrakeFetty WapAdele and Taylor Swift to clean house. They lead the pack, but you can see who else is up for some of the honors right here.

Like any award show, the best bits are the performances. Today we've learned we're in for a real treat: The queen Madonna will pay tribute to the late icon Prince.

On Wednesday, May 22, tune into ABC to see Madge dominate the stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. We don't know much about the performance just yet, but the surprise will most definitely be worth it.

Prince last took the stage at the Billboard Music Awards in 2013, where he was presented with the icon award. This year, Canadian chanteuse Céline Dion will be given the honor.
