Carey to receive Icon honor at Billboard Awards
No artist has more No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart than Mariah Carey, so it’s only fitting that the singer will receive the Icon Award at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. NBC and Dick Clark Productions announced Thursday that the Grammy-winning superstar will also perform at the May 1 event in Las Vegas.
Carey has 18 No. 1 hits. Kelly Clarkson will host the Billboard Awards. Cardi B is the leader with 21 nominations.
