Bruno Mars to Open the 2017 BET Awards in Los Angeles


NIGERIAN artistes have dominated African acts at this year's BET Awards scheduled to hold on June 27 in the United States.

Due to his tour schedule, earlier this year for the Billboard Awards, Mars was forced to pre-record his "Versace on the Floor" performance from one of his many tour stops, but thankfully he'll be present and accounted for at the BET Awards tonight at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Between her comedic chops, a list of famous faces being honored, fashion trendsetters and musical talent, the 2017 BET awards will be must watch TV.

Beyoncé is creating buzz for having the most nominations for the night, while host Leslie Jones has taken to Twitter all week to tease an event that is arguably one of the most exciting nights in entertainment.

This year's show is jam packed with announced performers including Mary J.Blige, DJ Khaled, A$AP Rocky, Gucci Mane and Xscape.

At last year's edition of the BET Awards, Beyonce won Video of the Year for "Formation", the first track from her hit album "Lemonade". "Joy, joy, joy ... that's what I want you all to write about the show". Chance is also set to receive the Humanitarian Award.

Leading the pack of nominees is Beyoncé, who we don't expect to be at the show due to the recent birth of her and JAY-Z's twins, with a whopping seven nominations.

Beyonce's "Sorry" and Mars' "24K Magic" are nominated for video of the year along with Solange's "Cranes In the Sky", Migos' "Bad and Boujee" and Big Sean's "Bounce Back".

Yara Shahidi, Cardi B, Issa Rae, Jamie Foxx, La La Anthony, the cast of Universal Pictures' Girls Trip (Regina Hall, Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah), Trevor Noah, Robin Thede, Cari Champion and Demetrius Shipp Jr. are all set to take the stage.
