BET Awards 2018: Nicki Minaj, Janelle Monae, H.E.R, Ella Mai, & More To Perform

Published: Wednesday 30th May 2018 by Sam

The countdown is officially on to the BET Awards 2018!

With Jamie Foxx recently unveiled as host of the 18th annual show, attention has now turned to its performers.

In announcement made moments ago, the network revealed the first slate of performers set to blaze the stage – a list led by Nicki Minaj.

Details below…

Onika, whose new album ‘Queen’ now lands August 10th, is in-line for a boost from the slot.

Joining on the bill is Janelle Monae (who recently dropped her ”Dirty Computer LP), Brit Ella Mai (who this week scored a Billboard top 10 with ‘Boo’d Up’), Migos, and H.E.R.


It’s a refreshing mix of names and we’re especially glad to see relative newcomers such as Ella and H.E.R on the main-stage.

Who’ll be joining them? Stay tuned to That Grape Juice for the latest on the BET Awards 2018!

Set to air June 24th, the show broadcasts live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Who do you want to see on the bill?

  3. AnonymousTruth May 30, 2018

    Only interesting artist is Nicki … so far it sounds like a festival line up with boring warm up acts and a headliner .
    Would really love to see Azealia Banks get a spot tho

    • ??? May 30, 2018

      lmao azelia is not gonna happen, BET doesnt cater to trump supporters lmfaooo.

  4. A. May 30, 2018

    you can tell the r&b/urban industry is in a bad shape when the confirmed list lacks at least 5 A-list artists.

    no Beyonce, Ciara, Brandy, Kelly, Tinashe, Jhene, Miguel….

    its a bit sad

    • I HATE WHYYTE N BLACCK BITCHEZZZZ both not ish May 30, 2018

      Bit,ch, those D lister’s cannot carry the awards and the Latinos cardi b, Jennifer Lopez and DJ Khaled destroyed the Billboard Awards, nobody wanted to watch them dance or sing,

    • ??? May 30, 2018

      lmao brandy???? lmfaoooo who’s that???

      and roach doesn’t pull tv viewers so you can cross her right off this list lmfaooo

      • DanYiel Iman May 30, 2018

        Beyoncé pulls in a crowd oonbad she’ll be at her concert for her millions of fans!!

      • ??? May 30, 2018

        @ Danyiel Iman lmao you talking about that concert roach’s pimp is making her do thats STILL not sold out yet? lmfaoooo

    • Ispeakfacts May 30, 2018

      @A. @???

      I agree kinda sorta… the only ones I’m checking for is of course Beyonce & Kelly… Brandy is a great performer as well but I agree she wouldn’t pull in any viewership… Ciara I’ve just never been into her… I’ve tried but can’t get into her… beautiful woman but she can’t sing whatsoever… dancing just don’t cut it for me… Beyonce will be on tour so I’m sure she want be at the awards this yr! Oh & Miguel would be dope to perform… they best bet is to get a ton of rappers to perform

      • ??? May 30, 2018

        lmao kelly who?

  5. pat May 30, 2018

    Normani should debut a new single.

    • iamdiego May 30, 2018


  6. SMH May 30, 2018

    The only thing that will make this show worth watching is if they give Mary J. Blige the Lifetime Achievement or Icon award.

  7. Erica May 30, 2018

    This would be the perfect time for Kelly to release her banger! I need high octave performance from her! last time she performed she stole the show literally!!! everybody was talking motivation

    • Ispeakfacts May 30, 2018

      @ Erica
      Hopefully she does… I think she will be done with The Voice Australia on June 4…. that’s plenty time to drop a single & start rehearsing for a BET performance

  8. Dtay May 30, 2018

    IM HERE FOR THIS!!!!!!!

  9. Jasmine (The Original Princess) May 30, 2018

    Yay another stiff snoozefest performance from Nicki…

  10. WRTW? May 30, 2018

    Azealia Banks would be great for the line up but bet stop being innovative a long time ago

    • ??? May 30, 2018

      lmao who?

    • gina May 30, 2018

      Um no, azealia banks can keep her trump loving ass on twitter where she has a tiny bit of relevancy.

  11. DanYiel Iman May 30, 2018

    Tricki Garbagh isn’t a reason to want to view the awards her music sucks & she’s not a crowd GRABBER!!

    • ??? May 30, 2018

      lmao roach doesn’t grab crowds either so whats your point lmfaoooo

  12. Yonce May 30, 2018

    I’m so here for this lineup. Thank you BET for finally giving other artist change to perform.

  13. #TeamTinashe Stan May 30, 2018

    Tinashe’s A&R hinted that she will be performing “No Drama” with Offset!!

  14. ~The Arcade~ May 30, 2018

    New Diva Alert: Victoria Monet would have also been a great choice, her music is truly amazing and is true to and reminiscent of 90s R&B. I’m still getting my life from her ‘Freak’ music video.
