Almost 24 hours after hitting the stage twice at the 2018 MTV EMAs for a solo performance of "Good Form" and collaborative "Woman Like Me" number alongside Little Mix, Nicki Minaj is continuing strong with her promotional circuit with an opening slot at the forthcoming 2018 E! People's Choice Awards.
On Monday (November 5), E! Online reported that the Young Money rapper will bring one of her new Queen tracks to the annual ceremony, which will take place at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, and air on Sunday at 9 PM ET. Minaj is also a finalist in two categories for this year's show, including Female Artist of 2018 and Album of 2018. Among the other performers set to hit the stage include John Legend and Rita Ora.
Earlier in the day, Billboard announced that Minaj has become the first female artist with 100 career visits to the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The milestone comes courtesy of her remix of "Dip," her recent collaboration with Tyga, which debuted at the No. 82 spot on the chart's November 10th release. Only four other acts have reached the 100+ benchmark, including the cast of Glee (207), Drake (191), Lil Wayne (160) and Elvis Presley (108).
