After announcing nominations led by Ariana Grande, Cardi B, and Drake, the first round of performers is now here.

With four nominations in Top Duo/Group, Top Rock Artist, Top Rock Album, and Top Rock Song, it was only fitting that Panic! At The Disco be added as a performer too. Kelly Clarkson will also be taking on double duties as both a host and a performer.

Lauren Daigle will take the stage for the first time, while Khalid returns for his first solo performance at the awards show. Sam Smith and Normani will also perform their hit collab “Dancing With A Stranger.”  

More performers will be announced before the awards show airs like from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Wednesday, May 1, at 8 PM on NBC.
