There could be a lot of colors at the Billboard Music Awards, scheduled to air live on May 22 from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. That's because the latest performers to be announced are Nicki Minaj and Cee-Lo Green, two performers known for their outrageous and colorful outfits, according to rap-up.com.


Nicki is also a four-time nominee at this year's awards show, having garnered nominations in the Top New Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Album and Top R&B Song categories. Cee-Lo is not nominated.


Nicki and Cee-Lo join an already star-studded list of performers, which includes Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and the Black Eyed Peas. The show will be hosted by Comedian Ken Jeong.
