    The ANN intro with the whistles, just like the tour Opening with maybe 2 or 3 other greatest hits.
    She was kind of fragile and she had a lot to grapple with but basically she kept it all inside ...

      She said she'll be on the same stage, so I'm assuming that she's the one presenting the award.

        Isn't Kelly the host again though, just like last year?

            Agreed, she definitely should get ANN in there.

              Well deserved being the queen of billboard and all.
              My wish is that the 2018 honoree, the legend herself Janet Jackson presents the award to Mariah. Now that would be a moment.

                ANN, Fantasy, SLLY, WBT. Even 4 songs in 9 mins are pushing it. Best to showcase songs that show her "fierce" side, to win over the type of audience who watch BBMA.

                  She should do Without You, Hero, a section where only the opening bells(?) of AIWFCY play, WBT, and ANN.

                  I know A No No needs to be pushed, but it's going to look odd among the hits. This may not be the place to do it. Those who know Mariah Carey, will want to be reminded of her biggest songs.

                    I was also thinking they should have the AIWFCIY bells somewhere. On the one hand, yes, it is fitting for her to perform her greatest hits - but a lot of them are songs that build momentum from gentle opening to giant crescendo. No time for that in a 9 minute medley - it just becomes a mess. And yes, she could perform her giant hits, like her TWO songs of the decade, AIWFCIY (surely third song of the decade) plus her origin (VOL)...but from a business point of view, it is vital for her to connect with the new young audience watching BBMA, and ANN and SLLY are the best for now. Fantasy is also uptempo and exciting, even if cut to 2 mins. WBT so she can show her vocals. Hero, ABMB, VOL, W/oY or WY are just too dreary....(even though I love them).

                      She has already performed VOL during the 2015 BMAs, so we can count that one out.

                      Like I said previously, maybe WBT, Emotions and Hero might make the cut. But I agree that the AIWFCIY bells should be included somewhere just to catch people off guard. She doesn't have to perform it, just put it somewhere to create a moment ... just for laughs kinda thing.

                        Y’all they have five minutes to perform

                        She should just promote “A No No”

                        She’s done a billion medley performances on TV since 2013, give us new music

                        Modern icons should showcase modern work

                          OMG - just 5 minutes??? Just checked - you're right - Janet only had about 5 mins too. Oh well, give up then - it's gonna be a cut and paste mess...

                            Oop! I thought it was 9 minutes.

                            I would just take the NYE route and do songs that could showcase a stellar vocal OR a really energetic performance similar to VH1 It's Like That.

                            No in between really.

                              She can also include the Glitter medley and do a fun performance like the VH1 one.

                                Imo, she should do A No No. This would be a great platform to introduce the song to a wider audience. Like how she did with VOL/Infinity, she could put one classic uptempo (maybe It's Like That?) before A No No. But I feel like her performance would be something similar to Britney's medley on her 2016 BBMA performance, minus the dancing.

                                  She could start with emotions belting. People are familiar because of drakes sample. Then cut to another hit and finish with ANN

                                    I think more people would know emotions from mariah’s version than that mess of a drake song!

                                      SLLY ft. Gunna would be so LIT. Should be a single.

                                      I agree!

                                      I know ain't gonna happen, but it would be very fun and effective!

                                      If she does the medley, I hope there's one song from Glitter - LNADJSML preferably.

                                        I agree.

                                        These medleys of hits she's been doing since '13 are putting her in a "legacy artist" position - a thing that I'm sure she despises lol. It won't be a wise move, especially when she has a new album to promote.

                                            A No No is a must imo...unless she is singing a totally new song..

                                              If it's gonna be a 5 minute performance, then I think only 2 songs will be performed at most.

                                              1st of May can't come soon enough though!
                                              She was kind of fragile and she had a lot to grapple with but basically she kept it all inside ...

                                                  ANN and Fantasy with a current rapper doing ODB's part would be cool I think

                                                  Likely will get a few lines of VOL, SIO, ABMB and a lipped WBT climax though
