Britney Spears is about to pull out all the hits!
The pop star is being honored with the Millennium Award at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, where she will perform a medley of her classic songs, Billboard and Dick Clark Productions announced on Monday.
"Serving up the best for the @bbmas," the singer shared via Instagram on Monday. "Performing some of your favorite songs on May 22nd on ABC! #BBMAs."
Spears will actually only be the third recipient of the show's prestigious honor, which was last awarded in 2012 to the late Whitney Houston, and accepted by her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, who died last July at the age of 22.
A year before that, the award was given to Beyonce, who proceeded to put on (sorry, Kanye'ing here a bit) probably the best musical performance of all time.
The awards show will also include an array of previously announced performers, including Justin Bieber, DNCE, The Go-Go’s, Shawn Mendes, P!nk and collaborations with Nick Jonas, Tove Lo and Demi Lovato.
