    Full list below. It's an interesting mix.

    The Go-Gos to me stand out as the odd one out though. Sure Madonna and Dion have been around for a long time. But they are still sorta relevant, still big names.

    Then there are the obligatory mid 1990's - mid 2000's ones like Spears, Stefani, Shelton and Kesha. When they got their starts at least.

    Of course they have most all the biggest pop stars going (that I really don't care for, but whatever) Bieber/Grande/Lovato/Jonas/blah blah blah. Maybe I am just too old now, but they all collectively just feel like the next crop of Disney kids turned pop stars. Probably feels that way because that's exactly what they are. Even still, I mean to say that I am removed enough from very current pop music enough to now see it for truly what it is, a "lets make the next big thing for 13 year olds" machine. Bitter talk from a 90s kid, I guess.

    Anyways, here's the full lineup. Any act have you excited to watch?

    Justin Bieber
    Rihanna
    Kesha
    Madonna
    Blake Shelton
    Gwen Stefani
    Ariana Grande
    DNCE
    Celine Dion
    Britney Spears
    Shawn Mendes
    Demi Lovato
    Nick Jonas
    Troye Sivan
    The Go-Gos

    Looks like the BET awards were none to impressed with Madonna's tribute to Prince (0:55 in) --
