Billboard announced Wednesday that Bebe Rexha and David Guetta will be performing at the upcoming 2023 Billboard Music Awards, scheduled for Nov. 18. The music publication also revealed that rising K-pop quintet NewJeans will be performing, marking the “Super Shy” group’s U.S. award show debut.
Guetta and Rexha will perform their collab hits “I’m Good (Blue)” and “One in a Million.” NewJeans will perform two of their Billboard chart-topping singles.
Following the buzzy release of NewJeans’ second EP, “Get Up,” in June, they earned their first five Billboard Music Awards nominations (Top K-Pop Album, Top Global K-pop Artist, Top Billboard Global Excluding U.S. Artist, and Top Global K-pop Song for “Ditto” and “OMG”).
Guetta and Rexha’s “I’m Good (Blue)” interpolates and samples Eiffel 65’s inescapable 1998 hit “Blue (Da Ba Dee).” It spent 55 weeks at number one on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart — the second-longest run in the chart’s history. The song also hit the top spot on the Radio Songs chart, Guetta’s first number one on that chart.
NewJeans first charted in August 2022 after the release of their self-titled debut EP, including on the Billboard Global 200. The songs from their second EP soared higher, with “Super Shy” reaching number two.
Guetta, Rexha and NewJeans join regional Mexican trap artist Peso Plumo, who was the first 2023 Billboard Music Awards performer announced on Monday. Billboard will continue to announce more performers daily.
Taylor Swift is the most nominated artist this year with 20 nods and holds the most Billboard Award of any female artist with 29. Controversial country artist Morgan Wallen is the leading male finalist with 17 nominations, followed by Drake, who has 14 nominations. (The “God’s Plan” rapper is the most decorated artist overall with 34 total wins.)
The 2023 Billboard Music Awards will take place on Sunday, Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, with performances and awards to be rolled out on Billboard’s social media channels and on bbmas.com/watch.
