Dick Clark Productions, which produces the Billboard Music Awards, released a statement to explain why (Full Comment Here)

  “Morgan Wallen is a finalist this year based on charting.  As his recent conduct does not align with our core values, we will not be including him on the show in any capacity [performing, presenting, accepting.]

“It is heartening and encouraging to hear that he is taking steps in his anti-racist journey and starting to do some meaningful work.  We plan to evaluate his progress and will consider his participation in future shows.”
