Travis Scott to Perform at 2022 Billboard Music Awards – “I’m Not Canceling Cancellation,” Says Diddy
“I’m not rescinding the cancellation,” Sean “Diddy” Combs said, revealing that Travis Scott will be performing at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards, which will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 15. Scott’s remix of his song “Goosebumps” is also nominated for Top Dance/Electronic Song.
“There will be no cancellations on my watch,” added Diddy, who will serve as executive producer for the upcoming Billboard Music Awards. “Love is about forgiveness, which is why it was important for me to have Travis Scott on stage. It’s going to be a great night.
The performance marks Scott’s first awards show after the fatal crush of the crowd during his performance at the Astroworld Festival in Houston on November 5, 2021, which left 10 concertgoers dead and hundreds injured. Scott has kept a low profile since the tragic event but recently returned to the stage with appearances at a post-Coachella event and a recent performance at E11even nightclub in Miami.
In 2019 and 2020, Scott became the first artist in Billboard Hot 100 history to have three songs – “Highest in the Room”, “The Scotts” and “Franchise” – enter the chart at No. 1 less. one year.
At this year’s Billboard Music Awards, Scott joins other scheduled artists, including Ed Sheeran, who appears live from Belfast, Northern Ireland, as well as Miranda Lambert and rocker Elle King, who will perform their duet “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home),” and additional performances from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Silk Sonic, Megan Thee Stallion, Maxwell, and more.
