Kendrick Lamar and Chris Brown to Perform at 2015 BET Awards
Kendrick Lamar's string of success will continue at the BET Awards this year. The "i" rapper, along with Chris Brown, will be hitting the stage for the network's 15th annual award show, which will be hosted by Blackish stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross.
BET is bringing out a multitude of stars to celebrate some of the best and brightest in entertainment. Fans will be delighted to see the likes of Michael B. Jordan and rising star Zendaya serve as presenters this year.
In terms of nominations, Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown lead the way with six apiece. Brown's infectious singles "New Flame" and "Loyal" are both nominated for Video of the Year and Best Collaboration. Minaj's rump-shaking ode "Anaconda" is also nominated for Video of the Year. Beyonce and Lil Wayne come in second with four nominations for their catalog of hits, while Usher, Big Sean, John Legend and Rae Sremmurd each garner three nominations.
K. Dot and CB are both coming off epic performances at Hot 97's Summer Jam earlier this week. Lamar surprised the crowd when he brought out internet sensation Welven Da Great in New York City and Breezy had a couple of tricks of his own when he welcomed 50 Cent and French Montana during his set. Who knows what these guys will have in store for the 2015 Bet Awards.
The 2015 BET Awards will air live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on June 28 at 8 p.m. ET.
