Official organizers of the 2022 BET Awards have just released the full list of artistes that would be performing at the event. Hosted by Taraji P. Henson for the second year in a row, the award show will air live on June 26 on BET at 8 p.m. ET/PT from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
As the acronym implies, the award was established in 2001 to celebrate the excellence of Black entertainers around the globe. At first, the show only focused on artistes in and around the USA. But in recent years, the focus has shifted to African artistes and other black artistes from around the world.
The award show has been held every year but one, since it’s inception. It was canceled in 2020 because of the world wide pandemic.
