the hangover 2The Billboard Music Awards hit the airwaves tonight and promise to be a star studded event with some very interesting musical collaborations.

Which star from The Hangover 2 will be hosting the return of the BMA’s? (keep reading) Rihanna leads all nominees with 18 nominations at the Billboard Music Awards 2011. Can she kick off the return of the BMA’s by winning them all? She is followed closely by Eminem with 16, Lady Gaga with 12 and Burno Mars and Justin Bieber with 11 each.

While there will be plenty of awards and speeches there are sure to be some pretty cool performances as well at the Billboard Music Awards 2011. Award shows love to pair people up who wouldn’t normally work together and the Billboard Music Awards are no different. We will see Mary J. Blige and Lil Wayne team up for a song. Far East Movement, Ryan Tedder from One Republic and Snoop Dogg will all join forces. Pitbull will perform him his “Give Me Everything” with Ne-Yo and Nayer.

Among the other performers scheduled to take the stage are Ke$ha, Cee Lo Green, The Black Eyed Peas, Nicki Minaj, Lady Antebellum and Taio Cruz. Beyonce is scheduled to receive the Billboard Millennium Award “as an innovative artist who is defining her times.” She will also take the stage and perform. Billboard will hand out the ICON Award to Neil Diamond who will also perform. The lead singer from the band Train, Pat Monahan, has tweeted that he is scheduled to be part of a “sweet” opening number for the show.

The Billboard Music Awards 2011 presenters are a who’s who of the music world: Taylor Swift, Randy Jackson, Bret Michaels, Joe Jonas, Selena Gomez, Matthew Morrison, Trey Songz, Kelly Rowland and Keri Hilson are listed among those who will hand out awards.

What might interest me most is that the host of the show is Ken Jeong. If that name sounds familiar but you can’t place it, he is the Asian guy who jumped out of the trunk naked and attacked the guys in The Hangover. He is reprising his role, hopefully with clothes on, in the upcoming Hangover 2. I’ve never seen him host before so it could be interesting.

Tune in Sunday night at 8PM on ABC to watch the Billboard Music Awards 2011 as they air live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
