Kelly Rowland To Perform At BET Awards

Published: Wednesday 15th Jun 2011 by Sam

Kelly Rowland looks set to cap off the phenomenal chart success of ‘Motivation’ with a performance slot on Urban music’s biggest calender night.

Full story after the jump…

After much speculation, it has been confirmed that the 30 year will indeed be taking to the stage at the BET Awards 2011 in Los Angeles next Sunday (June 26th). Reliable sources reveal that the slot will serve as Rowland’s first televised performance of ‘Motivation’.

The singer is among a string of new performers added to the night’s impressive line up. Along with her, Trey Songz and Mary J Blige join the likes of Chris Brown, Alicia Keys, Jill Scott, and Drake on the list of those taking to the stage.

We here at That Grape Juice have been hearing the terms ‘career-defining’ and ‘break out moment’ being touted about what the Destiny’s Child diva has planned. Needless to say, next Sunday couldn’t come any sooner.

Kelly’s third studio album ‘Here I Am’ hits stores on July 26th via Universal Motown.

  17. KAT DELUNA FAN June 15, 2011

    That’s my opinion.I love Kelly rowland and some performers announced but I am not interested into wachtin it.

    Questions?
    1-Cant I voice my opinion?
    2-Why should u think I am hating kelly when I am a DC fan?
    funny how people can judge u for a single comment
    3-WHAT IN THE FREAKIN BUTTOM B******* KAT DELUNA HAS TO DO WITH MY OPINION ?????????????????
    4-So now that Kelly rowland got a TOP30 song,she is successful and better than Kat deluna blah blah?

    Cant believe how I support all those girls in the struggle (JOJO,ALEXANDRA BURKE,AMERIE,CIARA,NICOLE..) but once one get a lil shine their stans treat the other ‘FLOP SINGERS’ like S***.

    THANKS
    LESSON LEARNED

  18. JR June 15, 2011

    Ok thanks Chris but this is a Kelly post. While B will perform from the UK Miss Rowland will be in the building doing her thing. Lets not forget they are cut from the same cloth…one just had the right people in her corner from the beginning!

    @stoney-brie
    what b******* ? take a W.C. seat and s***
    NEXT

  33. FlopJuice June 15, 2011

    SAM, you are really DOING AGAINST Kelly Rowland with these phenomenal success thing? That song is a FLOP. Look at the Bb hot 100.

    Last year when Christina Aguilera had the same position with Not Myself Tonight, this site talked about the flop and struggling of her. Now you call the same chart position as phenomenal success.

    Don’t be ridicolous, this site is losing the small credit it had yet every day with such kind of thing. And it puts Kelly into a really negative status because it suggests that maybe you are a paid advertisor of her management.

    It is really against Kelly.
    DON’T DO DOUBLE STANDARD!

  34. Mister80 June 15, 2011

    I’m happy for Kelly….I kno she will do well

  35. Stoney-Brie June 15, 2011

    @Kat Deluna Fan you keep failing even more to a point that your shade is even expired.. try again later..

  36. Nia June 15, 2011

    Kelly u betta bring it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. SerferTJ June 16, 2011

    @FlopJuice
    Kelly Rowland is an R&B artist.
    “Motivation” is an R&B song.
    “Motivation” is also the #1 R&B song in America.
    It has been #1 for about the past 3 weeks.
    It’s a smash hit.

    DEAL.

  38. RealMusic June 16, 2011

  47. Diane June 16, 2011

    Get it Kelly. I hope U wear ur Donna Summers fro.

  48. X,Y,”and Z” June 16, 2011

    @Sam —

    So 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland is to perform? Well, I guess that’ll be no better time for a then ‘restroom break.’ I mean, every show needs an act/performer that’ll be everyone’s que to then make a silent, hopefully dignified, retreat for bladder/bowl evacuation, no?

    Let’s see.. 30-Something-Year-Old Kelly Rowland on stage? Loads of attitude (Gays just LOOOVE that), lots of weave tossing, coupled together with layer-upon-layer of foundation, toner, and “Covergirl’s Best” (30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland is quite flawed, you know, with “Racoon Eyes” to match) – ALL then to be capped off by her already-witnessed nauseatingly-weak stage presence, and quivering mono-tonality!
    (And here I am thinking there could never be a challenger to/for Feckless-Fenty’s reign as “The Most Boring Human (to ever take a stage)..!!”)

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!

  49. The Man June 16, 2011

    Do your thang Kelly. Kelly has an r&b song, Pop caters to the biggest audience. So this is a huge hit for Kelly, it seems like they’ll try to send it to Pop as well.

  50. Princess June 16, 2011

    YAY Kelly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is great. I can’t wait.

  51. muni June 16, 2011

  57. ERIC June 16, 2011

  59. Dev June 16, 2011

    I like Kelly, i like this song but i don’t know about it live.

    I hope they don’t do like they did the last time when Kelly preformed Like This and the Beyonce did get me bodied

  60. aisha June 16, 2011

    Yay! and she looks stunning on that pic!

  61. diva June 16, 2011

    Now that’s what i am talking about, Motivation is still No 1, Lay it on me is gathering positive buzz, she is killing it on X factor and now…set to kill it on the BET stage #Teamkelly is on fire…oh and stop hating on these two women, Beyonce is set to help Kelly pick finalists for her team on X factor..that is sisterhood at its best ..i love both women, i support both women. Beyonce has been at the top for a minute so i’m just excited Kelly is finally getting her shine…go go go go

  62. Kavion June 16, 2011

    Don’t bring up B on KELLY’S topic, damn.

    Anyway, I’m excited & happy for Kelly. This is her moment. I’m happy that R&B as a whole is starting to rebirth. Kelly, Adele, Bey, Brandy..I’m happy.

    Kelly better rip the BET awards apart! I’m curious as to what’s on “Here I Am”, I hope it’s not as dancy as “Commander”. Kelly better be SINGING on this album, s***!

  63. lax June 16, 2011

    fickle ass people with their pettiness, so dam sad to hateon a beautiful
    young artist who’s only guilty of working hard and not bothering any one
    it’s just so SAD WHEN GROWN ASS GUTTER RATS BASHES THE HELLOUT OF KELLY ROWLAND.

    KELLY SAYS TO KISS HER TIGHT ASS, BYTCHES SMART PEOPLE KNOW THAT WHEN THEREIS A FIXATION ON CERTAIN ARTISTS THEN IT’S NOT THAT ARTIST
    CARES IF A/H WANTS TO TRY AND DEGRADE THEM IT’S ALL GOOD. YOU CAN BET YOUR SWEER ASSES THAT EVERY “BASHING DOG” WILL HAVE THEIR DAY
    AND WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND, BYTCH YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE
    RIGHT????

  64. dakkylove June 16, 2011

    @kavion didn’t know Adele could be considered RnB but i get your point definitely excited for soul music again and all sorts of music , i don’t like boxing my music tastes which is why Kelly is one of my faves…BET you got it right this time

  65. lax June 16, 2011

    kelly’s “motivation” is one of the most beautiful songs on the charts right now
    she shows emotions, depth, strong vocals, and simply put kelly rowland
    is a power house,,,,,,the biggest haters need to check her out (kelly) up
    close and personal @KissMySexyTightAss.roadrunner.net

  66. SEnse June 16, 2011

    Yes Kelly..Please slay our lives with your performance!

  67. YOOSONDALOOSE June 16, 2011

    Saw this from the beginning, well done Kelly, wonder what she will perform?

  68. Abraham June 16, 2011

    Finally, some performance from Kelly Rowland!! Relived! A resounding YES!!!

  69. Laurie June 16, 2011

    ALLELUIA !!!!!!!!! FINALLY BET YOU DIDN’T LET HER DOWN !!!! IT’S ABOUT TIME SHE DIDN’T PERFORM ON A MAJOR SHOW BY HERSELF !!!! CONGRATS KELLY NOW YOU BETTER ROCK THIS ONE AND SHOW WHAT MOTIVATES YOU GURL!!! GO GO GO GO

  70. ITS ME June 16, 2011

    BET don’t be messy and bring Kelly out right before Beyonce or right after like once before.

  71. Tamz June 16, 2011

    YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Rowl on June 26

  72. MSBLACKROSE June 16, 2011

    ALRIGHT MS KELLY! I LIKE THE PIC TOO. SHE IS REALLY STEPPING IN TO HER BEAUTY!

  73. Dilla (DC3’s WIG KEEPER) YOUR LACEFRONT IS OVA H** June 16, 2011

    I just hope that Kelly rocks this performance because I’ve been loving her lately. Go Ms Kelly.

  74. TeamKelly!!! June 16, 2011

    OMG! That’s all I have to say at this point! The last time I saw her on the BET Awards was when she performed “Bump like this” with Eve- I’m so ready for her to kill it! Being that she has been performing around the world with her biggest hit to date ‘When love takes over’ I doubt that she will have to worry about the nervous factor that she had to deal with back then! OMG! SHE IS GOING TO SLAY!

  75. nikki June 16, 2011

    While I am excited, I decide to be hopeful that this will be a great performance. Performing is not Kelly’s strong point but Iam hoping that her and her team work hard on a phenominal delivery of which ever song(s).

  76. Sterling8music June 16, 2011

    I’m really happy for Kelly!

    Its kickass that both Kelly and Beyonce will be performing on BET this year. It would be heaven if Michelle was also performing something. A dream would be all of the lady’s to do a concert. Not as destiny’s child but as 3 artist standing on the own.

    Wow now that is hot!! Call it the Destiny Fulfillment Tour !

    #2011Wesupportall!

  77. shakethatbak June 16, 2011

    IM SO DAMN HAPPY GO KELLY!!!

  78. lola June 16, 2011

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Kelly aint playing this time. You better “WORK” that stage girl. I am so excited!

  79. jrizza June 16, 2011

    she better slay!!! so well that Beyonce cant overshadow her

  80. Jan June 16, 2011

    Now is the time, everything is in place for her to really breakout! Her performance in ’07 was okay but her mic was so low no one could hear her so she needs to make sure that aint the case! This will either win people or lose people right now she has their attention lets hope she gives a performance worth keeping it. Shes had a hard solo journey but with this performance she can finally start making the ball move in the States.

    And I hope BET lets her open that would be very nice of them as Bee has opened 3 times twice solo so to allow Kelly to open the show would be great.

    Actually, is she really gonna perform on the show or the pre-show? I hope its the show.

  81. KristoPhro June 16, 2011

    SHE STILL BEY’S SHADOW

  82. NikkiIsChillin June 16, 2011

    Go Kelly!!!

  83. sunshine June 23, 2011

    Kelly will be able to show his talent, and she deserves it! | Just say one thing: “Caution Bee”!

  84. GOKELLY June 23, 2011

    This is to the haters:

    SCREAMS FROM THE HATERS, GOT A NICE RING TO IT.

    greetings from Kanye

    GET A REAL JOB. No one is telling u not to voice your opinion, it’s rather the way u do it,
    with no intelligence behind it. Just brute ignorance and stupidity. They are artist and everyone is entitled to like a certain artist.

    Just as I will never go to Beyoncés thread and put on stupid comments, because I respect her as a hard working woman I expect u all to have the decency to do the same.

    Grow up, it’s getting OLD SCHOOL

  85. Nessa June 27, 2011

    Lip syncing again Kelly? Someone give her the motivation please.

  86. Suicide Blonde December 13, 2013

    Mehhh.
