By Daniel S Levine,

Miley Cyrus may still be feeling ill, but Billboard is hoping that she will be fine in two weeks. She has been named one of the latest performers for the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas later this month.

Billboard said that Cyrus and Latin pop star Ricky Martin will both be there to sing their latest hits. The magazine also announced that Jordin Sparks, Kelly Rowland, Kendall Jenner, Kevin O’Leary, Mark Cuban, Pete Wentz, and Wiz Khalifa will present awards during the show.

On Monday, Billboard said that Jennifer Lopez will be receiving this year’s Billboard Icon Award for her career. She is among the previously announced performers, as she and Pitbull plan to sing the 2014 FIFA World Cup anthem, “We Are One (Ole Ola).”

Other previously announced performers include 5 Seconds of Summer, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Derulo, Imagine Dragons, Luke Bryan, John Legend and OneRepublic.

Cyrus, who is currently on her Bangerz world tour is a finalist in eight Billboard categories. She recently had to cancel two June dates in Europe.

Martin also contributed a song to the FIFA World Cup titled “Vida.”
