Billboard Music Awards: Performances
Taylor Swift and The Jonas Brothers served up some of the best performances at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday night. Swift and Brendon Urie opened the show with a colorful performance of their new single “ME!” The duo brought the dreamworld theme from the song’s music video to life by kicking off the performance with a drumline filling the aisles of the Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Urie then crashed the stage from above in a paint-splashed silver suit. Later, the Jonas Brothers played a lively medley that started with Nick and Joe performing their mid-hiatus side hits “Jealous” and “Cake By the Ocean.” They then joined brother Kevin onstage for the first live performance of their comeback single “Sucker.” Icon Award winner Mariah Carey also performed a medley of some of her biggest hits.
