The May 22 awards show will be the world television debut of "Just Like Fire.”

P!nk is the first performer announced for the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, where her new song, "Just Like Fire," will make its world television debut.

"Just Like Fire" — from the upcoming Disney film Alice Through the Looking Glass — is P!nk's first single in three years. Co-written by Max Martin, Shellback and Oscar Holter, "Just Like Fire" is P!nk’s first original song for a live-action movie. Pink has also contributed a cover of Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” to the soundtrack.

The 2016 Billboard Music Awards will be hosted by Ciara and Ludacris, who is helming the show for his third year in a row. The annual extravaganza will broadcast live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 22 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. For the first time, it will also air live on the West Coast, starting at 5 p.m. PT.

P!nk arrived in 1999 with her debut single, "There You Go," and has won one Billboard Music Award.
