    Now all I need is a glide across the stage from the Queen of Pop showing off her newly snatched post baby body and I’d say we have a show!!

    • SMH June 13, 2017

      Lol agreed. I have zero interest in this show unless Miss Janet makes an appearance.

  2. Yaboihasaan June 13, 2017

    More excited about Bruno Mars more than anybody. ?? Chris Brown does too much and is often predictable. ??

    • Jamie June 13, 2017

    About damn time they announced that the GOAT is performing? ! You know the BET Awards becomes the “Chris Brown Show” when he’s there. Excited to see him perform ?????✔️

    • SMH June 13, 2017

  9. Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler June 13, 2017

    Going to the pre-show. Now I’m trying to see if I can get tickets for the mosh pit

  10. SMH June 13, 2017

    YAWN. Only act worthy enough to see is New Edition. Nothing else but basics. I’ll be watching the “Power” season premiere instead of this mess lol.

    • Bruhman June 13, 2017

      Your f****** bugging, A lineup that features Bruno or CB is basic? F*** outta here with that b*******.

      • Bam June 13, 2017

        Chris brown is basic, his music is trash, but hey y’all illegally download it and request it at radio so of course he’ll perform.

        What really upsets me is the lack of female acts performing. Tamar Braxton is really all they could get?

  11. Jamie June 13, 2017

    Where are the female performers?

  12. Sam June 13, 2017

    Just looked up that Roman dude. Didn’t care for the song but his voice smooth AF. Hopefully he showout

  13. Bianca June 13, 2017

    There aren’t any females cuz nobody listens to anyone except nicki, bry and rih then separate them. Now u have a black show with no black female performers☹️☹️

    • Bianca June 13, 2017

      Typos nicki , bey and rih

      • Bruhman June 13, 2017

        I think Nicki is gonna perform too. She’ll probably be added to the lineup next week. Khaled has a song with Rih and Tiller coming out so she might to a surprise performance with him like Bey did with Kendrick last year. On top of that Bey may attend with Jay if she already gave birth to the twins.

    • Bam June 13, 2017

      That’s because they (labels and radio programmers) won’t push anyone other than those three. A recent survey showed that radio is still the top media format when it comes to listening to music and people can’t like what they don’t know exists. Both hip hop/r&b and pop mainstream are guilty of ignoring young black female artist.

      • Starxavi June 13, 2017

        Yeah it would be nice to see the likes of SZA, Justine Sky, Tinashe taking to the stage

  14. AmbeRussell June 13, 2017

    At this point, they should have kehlani and sza perform to give some fresh talent a chance. Tired if seeing the sane names performing on the main stage.

    • Bam June 13, 2017

      They should but they won’t at least not until people start challenging them and radio programmers on the lack of push and play of black female artist. If people bombarded them on why they have so few females not named Beyoncé perform on their show they’d have no choice but to respond.

  15. t least BET June 13, 2017

    he’ll be out of breath like always. Cant sing and dance at the same time. At least BET will let him perform. No award or talk show will have a line snorting woman beater. Well, except the black ones.

  16. Rosie June 13, 2017

    I’ll be watching since the last few were better than the VMAs but I’ll change the channel when Fist comes on. Why do they keep hyping him up? His music is complete trash, Privacy is the worst song of 2017 yet last time I listened to urban radio they played it every 10 minutes. No wonder everyone uses aux cords/Bluetooth now.

    • Bam June 13, 2017

      Payola and promises to perform at their summer jams.

  17. Frank June 14, 2017

    They should seat nicki beside remy

  18. truthtea June 14, 2017

    Why is Tamar the only woman performin with 8 men? Post Malone? Roman Gianarthur? Big Sean? Future? Really?

    Don’t Mary J, LeToya Luckett, Alicia Keys, and Solange all have albums out? Jennifer Hudson and Fifth Harmony just dropped their lead single too. Didn’t Missy Elliot, Nicki, and Remy Ma all just drop songs? Has Lil Wayne even dropped a song in 3 years?

    Tinashe is right, if it’s not Rihanna or Beyonce, we don’t care about our black women.

  19. TJ June 14, 2017

    I definitely agree with the comments above. Where are the female artists? Mary just dropped album. TLC is dropping an album soon. LeToya Lucket, Sevyn Streeter, SZA, Khelani, Solange.

    Missy could perform the I’m Better remix with Kim, Eve, and Trina. I would love to see Janet at least present one of the top awards of the night.

    • TJ June 14, 2017

      I forgot to mention Xscape can make an appears or present since they’re back together. The people who book the guests and presenters need to do better.
