Future, Migos, Trey Songz and Bruno Mars Will Perform at the 2017 BET Awards
Future, Trey Songz, Migos, Tamar Braxton, and Bruno Mars have been announced to perform at the 2017 BET Awards, which will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles Sunday, June 25 at 8 p.m. ET.
Last year, the awards were hosted by Anthony Anderson and actress Tracee Ellis Ross—this year comedian Leslie Jones has been selected to host the show. Beyoncé leads this year's nominations with seven, including Video of the Year for her single "Sorry." Bey is also listed twice in the Best Collaboration category for her single "Freedom" featuring Kendrick Lamar, and for her collaboration on DJ Khaled's "Shining" which also features Jay Z.
Bruno Mars snagged five nominations which makes him the second most nominated artist. He's up for Best Male R&B/Pop Artist and "24K Magic" is nominated for Video of the Year. Solange is nominated four times, and will be going head to head with her older sister twice for Video of the Year for "Cranes in the Sky" and Best Female R&B/Pop Artist.
Chance the Rapper has also received four nominations including Best Male Hip-Hop Artist, and Album of the Year for Coloring Book. Migos received nominations for Video of the Year, Best Collaboration, Best Group, and the Coca-Cola Viewer's Choice Award.
It wasn't too long ago that BET had been ridiculed for not having enough female emcees in their Best Female Hip Hop category. This year all eyes will be glued to the television to see who takes home the award as Cardi B., Missy Elliott, Nicki Minaj, Remy Ma, and Young M.A have all been nominated.
