BET Awards Feature Performances, Taraji P. Henson Returns as Host

The BET Awards will proudly return to celebrate Black Hollywood on June 30, with Taraji P. Henson reprising her role as host for the third consecutive time.

Megan Thee Stallion is slated to kick off the ceremony at the Los Angeles Peacock Theater. The rapper, who recently dropped her third album “Megan,” will set the stage for a night filled with performances from top-tier artists. Lauryn Hill is also scheduled to perform alongside her son, YG Marley, showcasing his viral hit “Praise Jah In the Moonlight.”

Earlier this month, BET confirmed Henson’s return as host. The announcement was shared widely, highlighting her enduring appeal and versatility as both an actress and advocate.

“All hail, Queen Taraji is back to host the 2024 BET Awards,” read the announcement. “We know she’ll bring her unmatched charisma, radiant energy, and undeniable star power to the stage. From her groundbreaking roles to her inspiring advocacy, @tarajiphenson continues to shine brightly and lead with grace. We can’t wait to see the magic she brings to this unforgettable night of celebration and excellence! Cousins, we heard y’all loud and clear about wanting Taraji back, so we delivered.”

Besides Megan Thee Stallion, the lineup of performers includes Chlöe, Coco Jones, Ice Spice, Tyla, and Childish Gambino, to name just a few. In a highly anticipated moment, Will Smith is expected to perform a new song, marking another milestone in his recent comeback alongside his latest film, “Bad Boys: Ride or Die.”

On the nomination front, Canadian rapper Drake is leading the pack with eight nominations. Usher will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement award in recognition of his substantial contributions to music and his philanthropic efforts.

The BET Awards ceremony will be broadcast live at 8 P.M. Eastern on BET, with additional simulcasting available on Comedy Central, MTV, and other Paramount channels.
