They’re finally here!
Tonight marks the night of the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, and fans are in for a treat— some of the industry’s biggest chart-toppers are combining forces for collaborations that are sure to be epic.
In Touch is giving you the dirty on which musicians will take the stage together to perform some of today’s hottest hits.
Christina Aguilera, Pitbull and Mystery Guest: The returning Voice coach is teaming up with the famed rapper to perform their hit “Feel This Moment.” But what kind of award show would it be without some surprises? A mystery guest will join the duo to perform the single— can you guess who it might be?
Ne-Yo, David Guetta and Akon: Talk about a triple threat! The French DJ/record producer will be joined by Ne-Yo and Akon to perform “Play Hard.” And if their performance is anything like their wild and crazy music video, fans better buckle up.
Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez: Performing their duet, “Live it Up,” Pitbull is taking the stage, yet again, to join J.Lo for a power performance of their new single, which they just sang live on the American Idol finale this week.
Will.i.Am and Justin Bieber: Okay, we’ll say it… these two are going to kill it. Will.i.Am has been the king of collaborations this year, joining forces with the likes of Britney Spears, Chris Brown, Miley Cyrus and now the Biebs. The duo will get together tonight for “The Power” — and powerful, it will be.
Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne: Teaming up for “High School,” the American Idol judge and rapper will get together to perform the fan-voted second favorite single off of Nicki’s album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded— The Re-Up.
This much is certain: fans are about to get their jam on. Which collaboration are you most looking forward to seeing at tonight’s awards?
