    Mariah Carey to Receive Icon Award at 2019 Billboard Music Awards

    Mariah Carey has dominated the pop world and the Billboard charts since her debut in 1990, and, fittingly, dick clark productions and NBC announced Thursday (April 11) that Carey will be honored with the prestigious Icon Award.
    Along with her award, the living legend herself will take the stage to perform a medley of her biggest hits. She joins previous legendary Icon recipients Janet Jackson, Neil Diamond, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, Cher and more.

    Carey led the Billboard Hot 100 in each year of the 1990s, making her the only artist to top the chart in every year of any decade, and has had 18 total No. 1s on the chart, the most among any soloist. Additionally, her 79 total weeks ruling the Hot 100 are the most of any artist. Six of her albums claimed the No. 1 spot of the Billboard 200 albums chart.

    The 2019 Billboard Music Awards, hosted by Kelly Clarkson, will air live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Wednesday, May 1, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

    YAASSSSSSSS!!!!!!!! So happy for Mariah. Well deserved

    I hope she performs a medley of her uptempo songs, plus A No No.

    It would be great if Celine Dion presented her the award

    Sorry for the multiple posts. I cant contain myself.
    We love everyone. Except the haters.

    The Idol medley is underrated. She sounded great as evidenced by the audience tapings of the 3 takes. They screwed up the audio with the visual which wasn’t in sync when it aired on TV but was perfect when they uploaded it to YouTube. Coincidence? I think not.

    I'm guessing "We Belong Together+Emotions+Hero" for the greatest hits medley.
    She was kind of fragile and she had a lot to grapple with but basically she kept it all inside ...

    JLo received the Icon Award before Mariah?

    She should get both rappers for a no no remix for the performance.

    Absolutely not.

    The tour opening is sufficient.

    Leave A No No off. It’s never going to happen.

    It’s an Icon Award.. she needs the songs that got her there and that’s what people want to see.

    I do think it translates brilliantly live though in comparison to her other recent songs. (Post 2005)

    Imagine if she performs A No No with Missy and Kim though.

    I hope they get the medley to work properly, not like the Idol/NBC New Year ones

    She will perform her most recent single though and it makes sense for her to do so. And if she brings the energy and fun from the tour it will translate great live

    She will have more time to perform the hits. The hard choice is which ones.

    Her last performances served great production/visuals so im sure she will serve something great.

    100%... she needs to PERFORM. I’m starting to feel embarrassed for her when she doesn’t move at high profile events
