The country artists join a lineup including Kelly Clarkson, Sam Smith, Nick Jonas and Ed Sheeran.

Looks like we've found out who Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" is. The band will perform the Hot Country Songs chart-topping single with Faith Hill at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 17.

In addition to the just-announced performance from Van Halen, Little Big Town and Hill will join Kelly Clarkson, Hozier, Nick Jonas, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, along with special duet performances by Empire's Jussie Smollett and Bryshere "Yazz" Gray with Estelle, Fall Out Boy featuring Wiz Khalifa, Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea and Meghan Trainor featuring John Legend.

While early stories said "Girl Crush" wasn't getting support from country radio because of its assumed "lesbian theme," that's been far from the case: The track topped Hot Country Songs this week and lands at No. 19 on the Country Airplay chart.

The Billboard Music Awards -- produced by Dick Clark Productions -- will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 17, from 8-11 p.m. ET on ABC. The show will be co-hosted by Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen, and Taylor Swift and Sam Smith lead all finalists with 14 and 13 entries, respectively.
