T-Pain Is Tops, Nabs 5 BET Awards Nominations

T-Pain leads the way with five nominations for the 2008 BET Awards, it was announced today. The ceremony is scheduled to air June 24 in Los Angeles.

A highly sought-after hook man, T-Pain is nominated for his guest spots on Kanye West’s “Good Life,” Flo Rida’s “Low” and Chris Brown’s “Kiss Kiss” in the best collaboration category. He’s also nominated twice for video of the year.

Despite releasing a gold-selling album, Epiphany and a chart-topping single, “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’),” none of the Auto-Tune artist’s nominations came from his own work.

Other multiple nominees include West and Keyshia Cole with three nods apiece, while Flo Rida, Alicia Keys and Mary J. Blige earned two nods.

Legendary soul singer Al Green is set to receive a lifetime achievement award from BET and producer Quincy Jones will be rewarded for this humanitarian work.

Lil’ Wayne, Usher, and Nelly are scheduled to announce the nominees live on “106 & Park” later today.

Weezy, Blige and Mariah Carey are already confirmed to perform live at the awards. –Carl Chery
