Showing up for the girls, country superstar Carrie Underwood and indie-pop goddess Ellie Goulding are among the finalists for this year’s Billboard Milestone Award. As a fan-voted venture, the winner will be revealed during the Billboard Music Awards, to be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 18.
The other four finalists are: Luke Bryan, Imagine Dragons, OneRepublic and John Legend.
“I’m really looking forward to presenting the Chevrolet Milestone Award at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. I love being able to recognize fellow artists for their accomplishments and having the opportunity to present with a fan will make the evening that much more exciting,” says R&B legend and former "X-Factor" judge Kelly Rowland. In addition to voting for this category’s winner, fans can enter for a chance to co-present the honor alongside the “Say My Name” chanteuse.
The prize also includes: two tickets to the live show, plus hotel accommodations and airfare.
These six finalists will be narrowed down to three, which will be announced on April 21. During the first two hours of the awards, fans can continue to vote for the winner. The 2014 Billboard Music Awards will be broadcast on the ABC Network May 18 at 8/7c.
Nearly two years ago, Bryan introduced Underwood’s epic “Blown Away” performance. Step back in time with us now:
