It sounds like the 2017 BET Awards will be a show to remember.
At the end of May, the channel announced that acts like Migos, Bruno Mars, Future, Trey Songz, and Tamar Braxton will hit the stage as this year’s performers. It was later revealed that Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, Big Sean, Post Malone, Roman GianArthur, and Jessie Reyez would also perform for this year's show. Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones will host the awards show, which will take place next month at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Ceremony organizers also revealed which actors, musicians, and athletes will present throughout the night. Viewers can expect appearances by Jamie Foxx, Cardi B, Trevor Noah, and Queen Latifah.
As previously reported, Beyoncé has nabbed the most nominations for this year’s show (seven for her sixth studio album, Lemonade). Mars came in second with five nominations, followed by Chance the Rapper, Solange, and Migos, who each have four nominations going into the night.
