It’s that time of year again. The biggest night in Black music is upon us and we’re anticipating a grand ole’
ratchet time. Hosted by Black-ish stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, the 2015 BET Awards will hit the Staples Center Sunday, June 28, at 8P/7C bringing with it a fierce red carpet, star-studded list of performers and presenters.
Here’s everything you need to know about the show.
Celebs like Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Ne-Yo, Big Sean, Meek Mill, Future, Tamar Braxton, Omarion, Tyga, Jidenna, the cast of Empire and more will hit the stage at the 2015 BET Awards. But we’re even more excited to see Ciara, Jason Derulo and Tinashe tackle some of Janet’s greatest moves in an all-star tribute to Janet Jackson, who will receive BET’s inaugural Ultimate Icon: Music Dance Visual Award.
“This is Janet Jackson, people! We are excited beyond belief to present her with our inaugural ULTIMATE ICON: Music Dance Visual award and we are thrilled that she chose the BET Awards as the first step on her new road,” Stephen G. Hill, BET’s President of Programming said. “An inspiration to many other artists, ‘Ms. Jackson’ (’cause I’m nasty) blends music, dance and visuals in unique and groundbreaking ways and we look forward to celebrating her storied history… as well as giving the BET Awards audience a peek into her Unbreakable future.”
