    I really hope all the big names come out, Make this one hot…. Award shows been soooo boring. Make MONIQUE the host again. And bring out the living LEGENDS!

    Keep the Rap to a minimum, Let RnB shine, And crossover shine… This aint the BET Hip Hop awards. There’s already a show for that.
    I feel like they be letting rappers take the reigns and control the show.
    They need to focus

    • DanYiel Iman June 20, 2017

      Right because the rappers do more singing than rapping!!

    • Erica June 20, 2017

      I’m here for Monique

    • Bam June 21, 2017

      Agreed about how they let rap take over as though thee isnt a BET hip hop awards. I’m still not impressed by the lack of Females performing. THeres what four female acts now come on BET…

    I was hoping to see more singers/dancers performing.
    Kehlani should of been booked to perform.

    • Jasmine June 20, 2017

      I’ll pass on Kehlani and Tinashy

  4. SMH June 20, 2017

    Well finally a reason to watch, other than New Edition being honored. Mary J will bring the fire to what looks like yet another tired awards show.

    • Jasmine June 20, 2017

      I think the show is only “tired” for those that actually watch the live broadcast. If you attend the show in person it is more interesting or if you watch the performances only online it is much much better than watching a stretched out awards show.

  5. Achooo! June 20, 2017

    I can’t wait I’m looking forward to seeing Xscape, Tamar Braxton and Bruno Mars

  6. Cherrio June 20, 2017

    This Year’s BET Awards Is Goin’ To Be Interesting!!!! I Don’t Watch TV, But Hopefully, I Come Across It On Live Stream Or On Someone Else’s TV.

    TLC needs to be paid homage they have a new album dropping this month and theyre iconic along with janet!

  8. ? + ✈ = ? June 20, 2017

    Suprised no TLC. Dont they have an album coming out lol

    • Jasmine June 20, 2017

      If TLC wanted to be at the BET awards they should have played their politics right. Chili saying “All Lives Matter” is a slap in the face of black people. You can’t have your cake and eat it to. Their album will flop and flop hard or it will get shelved and simply leaked free.

  9. Coolio June 20, 2017

    That album was good by mary j….but since beyonce wont be their im not watching

    • Jasmine June 20, 2017

      More than likely she will tape a couple acceptance speeches to air for the show. I don’t watch awards shows live unless I am there in person so the internet streams with the fast forward work for my needs.

  10. Rosie June 20, 2017

    They’re really pushing Khalid and his fake ass English accent. The Bryson Tiller of 2017, except people actually listened to Bryson’s debut outside of 2 songs.

  11. Jamie June 21, 2017

    Why wasn’t Solange booked?

  12. Thatchick June 21, 2017

    Yess im about that Escape Reunion and Mary and BRuno! Yes BET yall doing that!

  13. Denise R Owens June 21, 2017
