Don't count on any twerking, but it wouldn't be a music awards show without Robin Thicke.

The "Blurred Lines" hitmaker is the latest performer set to light up the 2014 Billboard Music Awards this Sunday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, televised live on ABC.

The R&B crooner will take the mic at the May 18 ceremony, where he joins previously announced performers Shakira, Katy Perry, 5 Seconds of Summer, Ariana Grande, Florida Georgia Line, Iggy Azalea, Imagine Dragons, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Lorde, Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, OneRepublic, Pitbull and Ricky Martin.

Thicke is a finalist in seven categories this year, including Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Album and Top Hot 100 Song, for his smash single "Blurred Lines," which spent 12 weeks atop the Hot 100. The track, which features Pharrell and T.I., has sold seven million copies, making it the eighth-biggest song download of all time. Thicke's latest album, also dubbed Blurred Lines, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and has sold 731,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Thicke's song choice has not been confirmed at this time. However, TMZ is reporting the singer will debut a new track called "Get Her Back," which the N.Y. Post reveals is a thinly veiled attempt to get his wife Paula Patton back, with lyrics like "I should've kissed you longer/I should've held you stronger/And I'll wait forever for you."
