So you want to see artists like DJ Khaled, Migos, Kendrick Lamar, SZA and Cardi B go head-to-head for some of the top titles at the 2018 BET Awards, but you can’t actually get to Los Angeles in time for Sunday’s ceremony? No biggie, BET has you covered.
The 2018 BET Awards kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday.
In addition to airing the annual award show on the cable network, BET is offering live stream coverage of the entire show for U.S. and international fans to enjoy. Viewers in America and 100 other countries can access the BET Awards live stream on their smart devices and laptops by downloading the BET Play app. Users can find it in iTunes or the Google Play store for a $3.99 charge. However, BET is offering a seven-day trial of the app for no additional cost.
Along with the actual award show hosted by Jamie Foxx, viewers will be able to stream a live feed of the 2018 BET Awards red carpet where they’ll get to see a slew of nominees and guests arrive at the star-studded event.
The ceremony is expected to bring out the crème de la crème in black entertainment, including artists like 2 Chainz, Big SEAN, H.E.R., Nicki Minaj, Miguel, Janelle Monàe, Ella Mai, Jay Rock and Yolanda Adams, all of whom are slated to take the stage during the show.
Meanwhile, celebrities like Kevin Hart, T.I., LL Cool. J, Jacob Lattimore, Mike Colder, Tyler Perry and several others are expected to hand out the highest honors of the night, including the BET Lifetime Achievement Award, which is set to be given to legendary sou, and R&B singer Anita Baker. Earlier this year Baker announced she would retire from music following one final farewell tour, which launched in March.
The network also announced it would also hand out honors to six humanitarians for their selfless acts of bravery, including Parkland High School shooting survivor Anthony Borges; journalist Shaun King; James Shaw Jr., who disarmed an active shooter at a Waffle House in Tennessee; March for Our Lives speaker Naomi Wadler; National Walk Out Day protester Justin Blackman; and Mamoudou Gassama, who saved a child dangling from a building in Paris.
