Prince Royce has been on a roll lately, and it's only getting better.

The "American Idol" star's song, "Back It Up," just hit No. 1 on iTunes Music Latin Chart; he rocked "American Idol" Season 14 with a performance of the song with Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull; and he has also teamed up with Sprint's Executive Chief Officer Marcelo Claure, (whom Latin Post spoke with in an exclusive interview) to help Latino youth. 

Now, he's gearing up to present at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards this Sunday, along with some of the best in the industry.

But before all of the excitement of the awards, he paid it forward.

On Wednesday, Prince Royce tweeted out his gratitude to Lopez -- who just announced her Las Vegas residency in 2016 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, where Britney Spears is currently rocking the stage -- and Pitbull for their collaboration with him on the popular bilingual single, "Back It Up."

@PrinceRoyce "#BackItUp @JLo @pitbull hit #1 on @iTunesMusic Latin Chart thanks for the love guys! #1 en iTunes Latino gracias!"

In addition to Prince Royce, the line-up of 2015 Billboard Music Awards presenters includes "Frozen" singer and Broadway starlet Idina Menzel, actress Danica McKellar, who we fell in love with during "The Wonder Years." Previously announced presenters also include 50 Cent, Celine Dion, One Direction, Rita Ora, Ellen Pompeo and Molly Ringwald, Billboard reports.

The night wouldn't be complete without the infamous Kardashian clan. Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner are also among the A-listers confirmed as presenters for this weekend's 2015 Billboard Music Awards.

On Sunday, The MGM Grand Garden Arena will be filled with incredible talent not just from the music biz, but from the fields of sports, acting and modeling who will also hand out awards.

According to Billboard, the newly-announced list of presenters also includes: Lily Aldridge, Hannah Davis, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Pentatonix, Tracee Ellis Ross and Charli XCX.

The Billboard Music Awards will be co-hosted by "Furious 7" star and rapper Ludacris and supermodel model and "Lip Sync Battle" co-host (along with LL Cool J) Chrissy Teigen, who is also married to John Legend.

Ironically, Taylor Swift and Kanye West are among the performers, but this time West hopefully won't try and steal her thunder again (that's all in the past, right Kanye?)

Swift, who leads all finalists with 14 nods, just ahead of Sam Smith with 13, will premiere her celeb-filled "Bad Blood" music video. Other performances include Britney Spears, who took a cue from JLo and teamed up with Iggy Azalea for her latest, '80s-inspired single "Pretty Girls."

Other performers include Mariah Carey, Van Halen, Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa and Imagine Dragons, among others.
