Many music award shows, such as the Academy Country Music Awards have been cancelled for 2020 set to return in 2021. BET have also cancelled their BET experience 3 day event but have kept the original date of their award night and will host the award show virtually.
The BET experience was set to run from the 25th of June to the 27th; making the 28th the award night. They have cancelled the experience and promise to bring it back in 2021. They have however chosen to air the award night which will mark the 20th anniversary of the BET Awards and the 40th anniversary of BET Network.
The nominees up for different awards are yet to be announced; Cardi B was one of the biggest winners at last year’s event. Mary J Blige was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award by Rihanna but this year’s recipient is yet to be announced. The new host is also yet to be announced; that is if there will be a host; Regina Hall hosted the Award show last year.
The Award show will be produced by BET’s own Connie Orlando and Jesse Collins of Jesse Collins Entertainment. It will definitely be a new way of hosting events and hoping they will have pre-recorded speeches from artists who bag BET Awards on the 28th of June.
