BET Awards Live Stream 2016: Watch Online!
Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross host the 2016 BET Awards on Sunday, and Gossip Cop has a live stream!
BET’s signature awards show is now in its 16th year. Anderson and Ross are back at the helm for the second year in a row. And in addition to being the evening’s emcees, both are also nominees.
Anderson and Ross are nominated for Best Actor and Best Actress, respectively. That’s right. Unlike the Grammys or even the MTV Video Music Awards, the BET Awards celebrate more than just music.
Among the 20 categories, there’s also honors for movies, television and sports. That said, it’s Drake who leads this year’s nominees. The rapper scored nine nods when the nominations were unveiled last month, including Video of the Year (“Hotline Bling”) and Best Male Hip-Hop Artist.
And while he won’t be taking the stage to perform, plenty of other top music stars will. Scheduled performers include Alicia Keys, French Montana, Usher, Young Thug, Jennifer Hudson, Janelle Monae, Desiigner, and Stevie Wonder. Both Wonder and Monae will be part of the night’s highly-anticipated tribute to Prince.
The ceremony is slated to begin at 8 p.m. Eastern, immediately after the red carpet pre-show, and followed by the “after party.” Watch below! NOTE: Live stream is no longer available.
