Tonight, the 15th annual 2015 BET Awards are airing live in Los Angeles at the Staples Center. The show is set to include performances by Kendrick Lamar, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj and more. Fans of Empire will see cast members perform a song from the show too. (Hopefully, it’s Hakeem’s “Drip Drop.”) The legendary Janet Jackson, who is set to receive the first-ever Ultimate Icon: Music Dance Visual Award, will be honored by a performance from Tinashe, Jason Derulo and Ciara. Overall, it’s going to be an epic night.
We will be bringing you coverage of each performance right as they happen. For now, watch Lamar's "Alright," and check back here as we update the post throughout the evening.
