Bebe Rexha & David Guetta are set to perform at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards, which are just 12 days away. They are the second BBMAs performers to be announced, following Peso Pluma. Performances and awards will roll out across BBMAs and Billboard social channels, as well as via BBMAs.watch, on Sunday, Nov. 19, beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
Rexha and Guetta will perform their global hit “I’m Good (Blue)” and their follow-up “One in a Million.” “I’m Good (Blue)” is a finalist for three BBMAs – top collaboration, top Billboard global (excl. U.S.) song, and top dance/electronic song.
In addition, Guetta is a finalist for two awards on his own: dance/electronic artist and a second entry for top dance/electronic song – “Baby Don’t Hurt Me,” a collab with Anne-Marie and Coi Leray.
“I’m Good (Blue)” spent 55 weeks at No. 1 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. Only one song in the chart’s nearly 11-year history has had a longer run at No. 1; “Happier” by Marshmello and Bastille topped the chart for 69 weeks.
Rexha is no stranger to chart-busting collaborations. “Meant to Be,” her collab with Florida Georgia Line, topped Hot Country Songs for a record 50 weeks.
Rexha and Guetta are both past BBMA winners. “Meant to Be” won four years ago for top country song. Guetta was named top EDM artist in 2013.
Rexha has had a total of four top 10 hits on the Hot 100. Guetta has amassed seven. Guetta has had two top five albums on the Billboard 200: Nothing But the Beat (No. 5 in 2011) and Listen (No. 4 in 2015). Rexha’s highest charting album on the Billboard 200 was Expectations, which debuted and peaked at No. 13 in 2018.
Taylor Swift is the top finalist at the 2023 BBMAs with nods in 20 categories. Morgan Wallen and SZA are runners-up, with 17 entries each. They are followed by The Weeknd (16); Drake and Zach Bryan (14); Luke Combs (10); 21 Savage, Metro Boomin and Miley Cyrus (nine each); Beyoncé and Rema (seven each); Bad Bunny and Peso Pluma (six each); and Ariana Grande, Guetta, Eslabon Armado, Karol G, NewJeans and Selena Gomez (five each).
The 2023 Billboard Music Awards Presented by Marriott Bonvoy will honor the year’s hottest names in music determined by year-end performance metrics on the Billboard charts. The program, produced by Dick Clark Productions, will deliver a reimagined award show concept that will entertain fans with music and exclusive content. Performances and award celebrations will take place in global locations, in the midst of sold-out tours, and in custom venues.
In a first-of-its-kind collaboration, the BBMAs and Spotify Fans First have teamed up to identify fans who have consumed the most hours of music over the past year and helped drive their favorite artists to the top spots on the Billboard charts. These fans will receive a “golden ticket” granting them access to attend a performance curated by their favorite artists, expressly for the 2023 BBMAs.
The 2023 BBMAs are presented by Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott’s travel program and marketplace. One special BBMAs performance and two exclusive acceptance speeches will be hosted at hotel brands within the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio.
