It’ll be interesting to see what role the comedienne plays in what is sure to be an explosive performance from Mars, who – along with Beyonce – leads this year’s nominations.
Other performers set to hit the stage include Chris Brown, Mary J Blige, New Edition, Xscape, SZA, and Tamar Braxton.
The 2017 BET Awards air live this Sunday (June 25th) from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
