The pair will be joined by singer Estelle, whose song ‘Conquerer’ was remixed as a duet with Smollett on the show.

Speaking on booking the big stage, the trio said:

Jussie Smollett

“There’s no way I could possibly love music more than I already do. The Billboard Music Awards has been the epitome of celebrating some of the best of the best in music. To be included as a performer on this year’s celebration is a huge honor.”

Bryshere Gray

“I’m still living in a dream — the success of Empire and now getting the honor to perform at the Billboard Music Awards. It’s truly a blessing”.


“My hope is that ‘Conqueror’ will continue to inspire people as much as possible. It’s such a powerful message! I cannot wait to perform it at the Billboard Music Awards with Jussie!”
