A last minute addition to the Billboard Music Awards is creating more buzz around the event. Britney Spears is reportedly on the performance bill for Sunday’s awards show. Sources tell “Us Weekly” that Spears will take stage twice — once, possibly, to collaborate with Rihanna on Rihanna’s song “S&M” during the show’s opening; and a second time to mark her performance debut with upcoming summer tour partner Nicki Minaj. Spears’ last televised performance took place in late March on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The pre-taped performance drew some criticism for a perceived lack of energy in Britney’s delivery.
The 2011 Billboard Music Awards will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this Sunday. ABC will air the awards show live at 8:00 pm Eastern.
