TeeRoy's 2 Cents:

  • This year will be Nicki's fourth performance on the Billboard Music Awards stage. 
  • Maybe Drake will do double-duty and pop up during Nicki's set. 
  • Will Nicki use the high-profile moment to debut some new music -- or take a shot at Remy Ma?

We've just learned that Nicki Minaj will open the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday with an "epic nine-minute performance featuring special guests Lil Wayne, Jason Derulo and David Guetta."

Ludacris and Vanessa Hudgens will host the show, which will also feature performances from The Chainsmokers, Miley Cyrus, Drake, John Legend, Lorde, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran and Icon Award recipient Cher. 

ABC will air the Billboard Music Awards live on both coasts from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET.
