Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, John Legend and others are also set to perform.

Jennifer Lopez will be performing at this year's Billboard Music Awards.

J.Lo on Wednesday shared the news when she stopped by the Today show amid chatting with Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie about the Met Gala, the second season of her NBC show World of Dance and her new single "El Anillo." She quickly took to Twitter following her Today appearance to share her excitement.

Lopez premiered "El Anillo" last month at the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards, where she delivered a show-stopping performance in a goddess-like headdress and bejeweled bodysuit. She last performed on the Billboard Music Awards in 2014, when she also received the Icon Award.

Along with J.Lo, this year's star-studded roster of BBMAs performers includes Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Kelly Clarkson (who also is hosting the show), John Legend, Dua Lipa, BTS and this year's Icon Award recipient, Janet Jackson. Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato also have announced that they will team for a performance of their new collaboration "Fall In Line," which will mark the world premiere of the song.

The 2018 Billboard Music Awards will be broadcast live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 20, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.
