It looks the BET Awards has its HOST and it’s a GOOD one! Comedian, and Oscar-award winning actor Jamie Foxx will EMCEE the BIG show this year!! This marks Foxx’s SECOND time at the mic. You may remember back in 2009 the ‘ Beat Shazam’ e.p. and host had the DAUNTING task of hosting the show after Michael Jackson’s UNTIMELY death just a few days earlier. In his [Jackson] honor, the show was REVISED to serve as a memorial and tribute to the fallen star.
Fortunately, this time around, the mood will be much lighter, and Jamie Foxx has a WEALTH of current events and topics to POKE fun at, so it should be one of the best. Jamie Foxx never disappoints!
As always there will be SURPRISES and an ABUNDANCE of star power on deck. A list of performers has not been announced yet. In BET fashion, they like to keep the BIG WOWS close to the vest to OFFER one of the BIGGEST nights of ENTERTAINMENT on TELEVISION! So we will have to wait on the edge of our seats just a little while longer.
BET exec. VP/head of programming Connie Orlando serves as executive producer of the awards show this year along with Jesse Collins Entertainment CEO Jesse Collins. As in previous years, the ceremony will close out the BET Experience at L.A. Live presented by Coca-Cola (June 21-24), now in its sixth year. The 18th annual BET Awards will air live on June 24 (8 p.m. ET).
