If you’re a fan of The Breakfast Club, this is one performance that you do not want to miss!


Britney Spears & Iggy Azalea Performance

Another performance that is a must-see at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards is from pop queen Britney Spears and rapper Iggy Azalea. The two “pretty” ladies will be performing their new single “Pretty Girls” on television for the first time ever, and we are BEYOND excited to see what these girls have in store for us.
