Zedd and Morris performed "The Middle" live for the first time earlier this year at an impromptu performance at OMNIA nightclub in Las Vegas. They debuted the song in an official music video at this year's Grammys. "Zedd was so great to work with and so easy-going,” Morris tells People Magazine. "It felt like we’d been working together for years."

Morris join a growing list of Billboard Music Awards performers that also includes Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello and Janet Jackson. The country music industry will also be well represented, as Chris Stapleton, Sam Hunt, Kane Brown and Dustin Lynch are all nominated. Kelly Clarkson will host the show.
