ASAP Rocky, French Montana, Gucci Mane and More Added to Performers at 2017 BET Awards
The ridiculously star-studded list of performers at the 2017 BET Awards has just grown a good bit longer. Today (June 20), the folks at BET announce A$AP Rocky, French Montana, Gucci Mane, SZA, Swae Lee and Khalid have been added to the lineup of performers at their annual awards show. Needless to say, all six of these acts are a pretty big deal.
On one hand, there's A$AP Rocky, who's got more swag than most people can handle. Then there's French and Swae Lee, who've been beasting 2017 with their collab "Unforgettable." Over the last year, Gucci's been the hardest working man in hip-hop, SZA's just dropped a critically acclaimed major label debut (CTRL) and Khalid's American Teen has already established him as one of the music world's top up-and-coming talents.
Artists previously announced as performers at this year's show include Future, Migos, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, Big Sean, Post Malone, Roman GianArthur and Jessie Reyez. Like we said, it's pretty damn stacked.
This year's BET Awards will be hosted by actress and comedian Leslie Jones, and it will also see legendary R&B group New Edition honored with a Lifetime Acheivement Award. Chance The Rapper, who's nominated for more than his fair share of awards at the show, will be presented with the Humanitarian Award for all of his philanthropy and activism over the last few years.
The 2017 BET Awards will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles this Sunday (June 25) at 8 p.m. EST. You can cop tickets here.
