It’s about to be lit.
Travis Scott will make his return to the stage at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards, it was announced today. The Houston rapper will perform live during Sunday’s show in Las Vegas, marking his first awards show performance since the Astroworld Festival in November, which resulted in 10 deaths.
Travis and HVME’s remix of “Goosebumps” is nominated for Top Dance/Electronic Song at this year’s show. In 2019-2020, he became the first artist in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 to have three songs debut at No. 1 in less than a year–“Highest in the Room,” “The Scotts” (with Kid Cudi), and “Franchise.”

It’s unclear what Travis will perform or whether he will debut new music from his long-awaited album Utopia. He recently teamed up with Future on Southside’s single “Hold That Heat,” but he hasn’t released any solo music since “Mafia” and “Escape Plan” in November.
Over the weekend, he performed his first paid gig since Astroworld at Miami nightclub E11EVEN during Race Week. He is also slated to perform at the Primavera Sound festivals in South America this November.
Hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs, the 2022 Billboard Music Awards will air live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 15, at 8 p.m. ET. Other performers include Silk Sonic, Ed Sheeran, Burna Boy, Latto, Maxwell, Megan Thee Stallion, and Mary J. Blige, who will receive the Billboard Icon Award.
