Bruno Mars, nominated for 5 honors, to open BET Awards


"I am so excited to be hosting the BET Awards this year", Jones said in an earlier statement.

The Best International Act category awards have over the years been filmed a day prior to the main awards show, something many have complain about as being unfair and described it as backstage awards.

We promised you a big show! You never know. It's the BET Awards. This year, as usual, viewers are in for a treat as they will get to see some wonderful performances by renowned artists.

This year's show will air on Sunday live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. EST on BET. Well, BET of course!

The awards scheme celebrates the accomplishments of African-Americans and other minorities in music, acting, sports and other fields of entertainment over the past year. Those who don't want to watch the award show on television have several options to choose from when it comes to viewing this year's ceremony.

Leslie Jones, comedian and host of the 2017 BET Awards, announced Friday morning (June 23) that her unrequited love affair with Bruno Mars is about to hit a new level.

The "Ghostbusters" and "Saturday Night Live" star will play host on Sunday and if her Twitter account is any indication she is ready to set it off. "I am looking to turn this whole experience into a joyful homecoming". "I'm always writing material and putting it away and working on things".

Awards season is a wonderful time of the year.

Tonight will be fun for everybody, as many awesome artists will grace the stage with their outstanding performances.

The names of all the celebrities who will give away awards has already been decided. Other nominees include Missy Elliott, Young Ma and Cardi B.

Follow the anything below at 8 p.m. EST/7 p.m. CST tonight!
