This 2016 Billboard Music Awards are gearing up to arguably be music's biggest night this year!

Rihanna was the latest name announced as the show's performer, joining a lengthy list of famous faces that have already been on the roster.

Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, Céline Dion, DNCE, Britney Spears, Pink, Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes and many, many more are slated to take center stage Sunday, May 22, at the T Mobile Arena in none other than Las Vegas.

The 2016 Billboard Music Awards will be co-hosted by Ludacris (who took on the role alongside Chrissy Teigen last year) and Ciara.

Shortly after it was announced that the duo would be hosting the gig, the two released separate, equally excited statements.

"It is my honor to host the Billboard Music Awards for the third year and a pleasure to host with my good friend Ciara," Ludacris explained. "I'm looking forward to another great show in a new and exciting venue." Ciara added, "The Billboard Music Awards is one of best awards shows to honor chart success. My great friend Ludacris and I have also shared songs together on the Billboard chart. I look forward to sharing the stage with him on this special night. It will definitely be a night to remember!"

This year's Billboard Music Awards will air at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Sunday, May 22.
