The 2020 Billboard Music Awards are gearing up to be a star-studded show!

On Tuesday, Sept. 29, it was announced that Alicia Keys, Bad Bunny, Luke Combs and Post Malone will be performing at the ceremony, set for Oct. 14.

As previously announced, Kelly Clarkson is set to return as host of the 2020 BBMAs for the third consecutive year. The award show was previously scheduled to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas in April, but the ceremony was postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"I'm thrilled to be back with my Billboard family," Clarkson previously said in a statement. "I love being part of an event that celebrates our greatest artists and entertains our fans. This a night of music that you won't want to miss!"
