The awards show, airing live from Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena on NBC, is set for May 20.

The 2018 Billboard Music Awards are just one month away, and the first set of performers are officially here: Camila CabelloShawn Mendes and Dua Lipa are slated to take the stage on May 20.

While it's unclear which song each artist will be performing at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, all three of the pop stars currently have a combined six songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Mendes' recently released single, "In My Blood," sits at No. 37 (chart dated April 21); Cabello's "Never Be the Same" and Young Thug-assisted hit "Havana" are battling each other out in the top 20; and Lipa's "New Rules" is still holding strong at No. 27, while her newer hits "IDGAF" and the Calvin Harris collaboration "One Kiss" are working their way up the chart.

Cabello, who is the only returning BBMAs performer (she made her solo live debut with "I Have Questions" and "Crying in the Club" at last year's show), is up for three awards this year, including top female artist. Mendes is once again facing off against BTS in the top social artist category, which the K-pop superstars won last year.

More performers will be announced in the coming weeks. Be sure to catch Lipa, Mendes and Cabello on the 2018 Billboard Music Awards when the show is broadcast live on May 20 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.
