Dearly Beloved…on June 27 we will gather at the Shrine Auditorium and mark the 10 year anniversary of the hottest award show in cable television, the BET AWARDS. This year, BET will honor the musical legacy and genius that is Prince as the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, an honor bestowed to the most significant and influential individuals in music history.
At a press conference held on Tuesday, May 18, 2010 in New York, BET announced the host of the BET Awards show this year, nominees in each category, planned performances for the night, and more. Queen Latifah, who is starring alongside my secret boyfriend Common (really, it’s no secret, it’s the only celeb that i completely crush on…anyway, i digress) in the movie “Just Wright,” has been selected to host this year’s awards show that airs on Sunday, June 27, 2010 at 8:00 PM EST. Each year, the BET Awards honors the best in music, entertainment, and sports.
