Kerry Washington at the 2011 BET Awards
“Too Big to Miss” is how BET is labeling BET Awards 12, scheduled for July 1, 2012 at Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
And if the list of nominees and performers is anything to go by, we should be in for an eventful red carpet in the style department, too.
During a press conference at BET’s New York offices, the media learned that Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown have already been booked to perform at the show, which Samuel L. Jackson will host.
Nominees include stars who are known for headlining with their fashion choices, including Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Melanie Fiona, Rihanna, Serena Williams, Willow Smith and Zoe Saldana. Chris Brown, Kanye West, Trey Songz and Usher, also known to shake up a few things stylewise, also received nods for this year’s awards.
To get an idea of who else to look out for, view the full list of nominees.
BET Awards 12 airs LIVE at 8/7 p.m. C on BET.
