They may be going virtual for the first time because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn’t mean that Sunday night’s (June 28) 2020 BET Awards won’t have a jam-packed roster of performers for the Amanda Seales-hosted show. Topping the list of musicians set to perform are Alicia Keys, Roddy Ricch, Chloe X Halle, DaBaby, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Kane Brown, Lil Wayne, Megan Thee Stallion and Summer Walker.
BET Amplified Artists Masego and Lonr will also be on tap, with additional performances from D Smoke, Jonathan McReynolds, SiR, Usher and Wayne Brady. The 20th anniversary edition of the show will air on CBS, BET and BET HER at 8 p.m. ET.
BET veterans Terrence J and Erica Ash will co-host the first interactive pre-show featuring celebrities, nominees and special guests on BET starting at 7 p.m. ET.
