Janet Jackson to receive the Icon Award at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards

The 2018 Billboard Music Awards will air live on May 20.

A star of television and film, she has also earned a Golden Globe Award, two Emmy nominations and a nomination for an Academy Award.

Jackson recently returned to the concert stage for her "State of the World" tour after giving birth at age 50 to her first child, Eissa Al Mana, with ex-husband Wissam Al Mana.

Last month, she hosted a worldwide open call for dancers to aid her in what she said are "some really cool upcoming projects."

"This audition is open to everyone, all around the globe! Yes, that’s right," Jackson wrote on her website. "I’m talking to YOU! It doesn’t matter your gender, ethnicity, shape, size, or where you live, this is an equal opportunity. I want to see it all!" she said.

No word on what the singer was up to, but it's possible some of those dancers could show up on stage at the Billboard Awards.

Jackson will join previously-announced artists Camila Cabello, Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa and Shawn Mendes.
