The Billboard Music Awards are this weekend and we could NOT be more excited about it!
Why, you ask, Perezicious readers?!
Are we excited about the awards they give out? Or that Ludacris is hosting the show?!
Of course, but we're MOST excited about ALL THE PERFORMANCES!
In preparation of the upcoming festivities, which will include Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Lorde and SO MANY MORE, we decided to take a look back at some of the most EPIC performances in the history of the awards!
And they do NOT disappoint!
Curious to see who made the list? Then ch-ch-check it out…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Who could forget Rihanna & Britney Spears performing the S&M together in 2011?
Or Mariah Carey killin' it during I Still Believe back in 1999!
Jordin Sparks gave an extremely emotional tribute to Whitney Houston in 2012 when she sang I Will Always Love You along with John Legend!
Remember when P!nk stuffed some guys face into her crotch during God Is A DJ in 2003?!
Or CeeLo Green's AH-maze medley of Crazy/Bright Lights Big City/Forget You in 2011?!
KP hanging high from the ceiling for Wide Awake in 2012 was brilliant!
Alicia Keys performing the song A Woman's Worth/Brother Part II with Angie Stone & Eve in 2001 was absolute FIRE!
Waaaaaay back in 1995 Shania Twain commanded the stage while performing If You're Not In It For Love!
Ugh, WHO could forget Destiny's Child powerful medley of Independent Woman/Say My Name/Jumpin' Jumpin' back in 2000? NOT US!
And the next year Brit-Brit performed I'm A Slave 4 U in a fountain in Vegas!
N*SYNC (& Justin Timberlake!) performing Just Got Paid in 2000 was CAH-razy!
Kesha was preeeetttty outrageous performing Animal/Blow at the 2011 awards! We loved it!
Taylor Swift was cute and quirky as always during her 2013 performance of 22!
Britney plus Nicki Minaj performing Super Bass/Til The World Ends = a total win for EVERYONE back in 2011!
And finally, who could forget the AH-MAZEballz performance that was Beyoncé performing Who Run The World (Girls)! She even made a memorable impression on Matthew Morrison!
