    I hope nicki doesn’t do the night is still young. Awesome song but it doesn’t bang as an epic performance song. In thinking Abybody Wanna Buy A Heart with Meek! That would be hot
    Intrigued to see Tinashe
    Ciara will KILL it
    I’m so happy Tori is performing. She will slay with them runs

    • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) June 26, 2015

      She’s a flop honey. DEAL!!!

      • Everyone’s A Critic June 26, 2015

        Please.. The BET awards is nickis best friend. The only flop is Kim’s left cheek. Bish needs a top up on that Botox to get an even look

    Why is that guitar plucking, white b*tch Tori Kelly performing at the BET awards? She doesn’t need anymore promo; the major execs have her covered. There are plenty of up and coming girls in R&B who need the promo as they aren’t able to get a slot on Good Morning America.

    • What now June 26, 2015

      EVERYONE NEEDS PROMO WHETHER IT’S A WORLD TOUR OR AN INTERVIEW. THAT WHITE B**** BOOKING BET’S STAGE IS NOT GETTING IN THE WAY OF OTHERS. K. MICHELLE & TAMARYONCE CAREY, EXCUSE ME, TAMAR BRAXTON HAVE BOOKED THE STAGE AS WELL. IF THEY CAN DO IT, THEN THE OTHERS NEED TO GET ON THEIR TEAM, NOT THE WHITE PEOPLE.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 26, 2015

        She shouldn’t be performing there because she can get promo anywhere where true R&B singers cannot do the same. From the AMA’s to the Billboards they pushed their own acts without any black artist, therefore it should be the same with the BET awards. That is the exact reason why black artists are being phased out while Iggy, Ed, Nick Jonas, and now Taylor Swift are singing it.

      • What now June 26, 2015

        YOU SOUND IGNORANT AND DELUSIONAL. MAY YOUR C*** GET F***** UNTIL IT BLEEDS OUT YOUR IGNORANCE .

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 26, 2015

        You can say that I sound ignorant, but you are the one who actually is! You’re not able to see how black music is currently being appropriated just like Rock & Roll, Jazz, Country, and Blues.

    • Skyfall June 26, 2015

      She isn’t white dumbass

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 26, 2015

        Then what is she? I’ll wait, because ALL I see is blonde hair and a lack of melanin.

    • Like whaaaaa? June 26, 2015

      According to wiki, Tori’s dad is Jamaican and Puerto Rican.

      Trust me I had to look right away, cause I thought she was white as rice lol

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 26, 2015

        That has nothing to do with her RACE. There are plenty of white people of multiple ethnicities living in Jamaica. She is as white and bleached as the Wonder Bread in my cabinet.

    • Grande The Way June 26, 2015

      Because the only major promo she’s gotten has been the Billboard Awards and GMA. And that white guitar plucking b*tch has more talent then most of the current line up

      • Citi June 26, 2015

        Agreed ! And we not gonna pretend Mariah didn’t have white skin and platinum blonde hair at one point ????

  3. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 26, 2015

    I am definitely looking forward to that Bad Boy reunion. I hope Faith, 112, Lil Kim,Total & Loon show up and show out!.. hell even Mase/Maize should be there (I like to call him Maize because that dude is corny af)

  4. What now June 26, 2015

    UGH SO PUSS MAMA, I MEAN PUFF DADDY, LET STEPHEN HILL BEAT HIS ABUSED CHEEKS JUST FOR A REUNION OF ONE ALBUM STARS THAT HAVE WENT CRAZY AFTER HE FIRED THEM? STUPID ASS N****. WELL, AT LEAST TRUTH CAN BE HAPPY ABOUT LIL’ KIMMEL BEING BOOKED ON A STAGE THAT ISN’T A NIGHT CLUB PARKING LOT.

  7. da realest June 26, 2015

    Wow BET is pulling out all the stops this year and it’s about time. BET is trying to make the MTV vmas look like the teen choice awards.

  8. Grande The Way June 26, 2015

    Chris Brown and Ne-yo…….why? I’m excited for Alicia Keys, The Weeknd, the Janet tribute and Tori Kelly. She is a really talented artist, her album is one of the best this year.

    • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) June 26, 2015

      Cracka lover!!

      • Citi June 26, 2015

        Are you serious ? You’re what’s wrong with the world.

  9. Barb-wire June 26, 2015

    Yeessss, That W**** Kim better be there so she can see the type of slayage The Queen of rap Nicki will bestow upon BET.

  10. Starxavi June 26, 2015

    Well I love me some Tori Kelly and I’m very excited for her performance. Hopefully she performs Should’ve Been Us! I can’t wait for the Janet tribute either.

  11. Christal June 26, 2015

    Tori Tori…I remember the first time I heard her perform (on the Queen Latifa Show). she got me and I haven’t looked away from her since then. Girl is a wonder, and I don’t care what color or race she is. Y’all better learn to recognise and appreciate what’s good…whats real.

  12. R June 26, 2015

    Tori is amazing. Fantastic voice and authentic musicianship. Love her.

    Amped for the Weeknd, Nicki, and the JJ tribute. Excited for the Bad Boy reunion, but would prefer if Diddy never hits the stage. It’s all about Faith, 112, Total, and the rest of the roster.

  13. You wanna love it right bettor like you do then my funky money June 26, 2015

    Can’t wait to see everybody performance at the bet award show on Sunday!!!

  14. ok June 27, 2015

    So a white singer with ZERO hits gets to perform at the BET Awards but Jazmine Sullivan and Sevyn Streeter dont get invited even though JAzmine put out a GREAT CD.
    Nobody is selling albums so that is no excue not to invite her.

    Also, why do the female RNB artists nomineees look the same as last year.
    It looks like they literally just put some names together.
    I know TInashe was nominated for best new artist but how was she not also nominated for female RNB????
    Do better BET.

  15. @JanetCIARA_ June 27, 2015

    OMG TORI KELLY YAAAAZ! HER ALBUM IS LIFE!

    I havent been this excited for an Award Show in YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
