Lil Wayne, Big Sean and More to Perform at 2017 BET Awards
With almost two weeks left until show time, we now have the full list of performers expected to hit the stage at the 2017 BET Awards on June 25.
We previously knew that Future, Migos, Trey Songz, Bruno Mars and Tamar Braxton were scheduled. But now BET makes it official with the second wave of artists including Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, Big Sean, Post Malone, Roman GianArthur and Jessie Reyez.
Comedian Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live, Ghostbusters) will host the evening, New Edition are set to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award and Chance The Rapper will receive the Humanitarian Award presented by Walmart. You'll also recognize some of the presenters that night, like Cardi B, Issa Rae, Jamie Foxx, La La Anthony, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Queen Latifah.
When it comes to awards show nominees, Chance, Solange and Migos each have four nominations. Awards show wins are nothing new for Chance, who already walked away with a few Grammys this year including Best New Artist and Best Rap Album.
Drake and Kendrick Lamar are also up for awards. Drizzy is nominated in categories like Best Male Hip-Hop artist and the Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award while K. Dot is also nominated for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist and Best Collaboration (“Freedom” with Beyoncé).
Jay Z should be proud of his lady Beyoncé, who holds the lead for BET Awards nominations with seven. It's also interesting to note that Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz have been nominated for Best Group for their Collegrove album. Also, look out for winners in categories like Sportsman/woman of the Year and Best Movie, which are unique to this kind of award show.
You can catch the whole show on Sun. June 25 at 8 p.m. ET from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on BET.
