One thing that music award ceremonies offer is a chance to hear some music that people can't hear anywhere else. When Justin Timberlake teamed up with Chris Stapleton at the CMA Awards back in 2015, it was one of the biggest music moments of the year. This year's Billboard Music Awards is offering another once-in-a-lifetime change as Salt-N-Pepa will team up with En Vogue for a huge special performance.

The pairing is a chance for the two groups to celebrate the fact that they were the first female rap artists to reach the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song that reached the charts was "Push It" when Salt (Cheryl James), Pepa (Sandra Denton) and DJ Spinderella released a song that changed rap music for females everywhere.

Salt-N-Pepa said in a statement that they broke barriers in a genre of music that is dominated by men and the success of "Push It" to break those walls down is one of the best moments of their entire career. In 1994, Salt-N-Pepa teamed up with En Vogue to record the song "Whatta Man," which ended up peaking at third place on the Billboard Hot 100. 

The teaming of Salt-N-Pepa and En Vogue at the Billboard Music Awards is just one of many big performances expected. Also performing are Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Jennifer Lopez and more. AXS has tickets available to the show, which takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas (buy tickets here).
