GWEN STEFANI TO PERFORM Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Tara Reid, Big & Rich, Kelly Osbourne, Gretchen Wilson and Macy Gray to Make Special Appearances

Ryan Seacrest will host THE 2004 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS, live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena Wednesday, Dec. 8 (8:00-10:00 PM ET Live/PT Tape-Delayed) on FOX. Ryan Seacrest will reprise his role as host of the 15th annual ceremony, which honors the year's chart-topping musicians. Now solo-artist Gwen Stefani will join previously announced performers Usher, Nelly and Green Day. Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Tara Reid, Big & Rich, Kelly Osbourne, Gretchen Wilson and Macy Gray will make special appearances, along with previously announced artists Nick Lachey, Alicia Keys, Fantasia, Ashlee Simpson, Duran Duran and Chingy. Additional presenters, performers and final award contenders will be announced closer to air.

As lead singer and songwriter for Grammy-winners No Doubt and their four platinum-plus albums, Stefani has reigned as one of rock's most iconic and cool females. Stefani's much-anticipated debut album "Love. Angel. Music. Baby." will be available Tuesday, Nov. 23. Working with an eclectic array of musicians and producers who represent everything from new wave to hip-hop, Stefani has fashioned an album that, according to critics, "shimmers with exuberance. "
