After much speculation about who was confirmed to perform at this year’s BET Awards, just a week before the show is supposed to air live from Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium on June 26th, BET finally announced that both Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland are performing.
Although Beyoncé will not be physically at the awards, she will perform via satellite from Glastonbury in the UK, since she was scheduled to perform at the festival earlier this year.
In addition, Kelly Rowland will also give the first televised performance of her #1 single, “Motivation,” from her third studio album, Here I Am, which will hit stores exactly a month after the awards. Also slated to take the stage this year are Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott, Alicia Keys, and Drake.
The BET Awards will take place and air live on Sunday, June 26th from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.
