Culture’s Biggest Night is finally here! The BET Awards red carpet is something where your favorite artists are solely based on their style and not their vocal performance. So despite how much we love some of these artists on the stage, we can’t help but wish they double-checked their outfits before leaving the house. We decided on five artists with the biggest hits and five artists with a miss for tonight’s red carpet.
Before you check out which category your favorite celeb is in, stay tuned for the show as well.
When it comes to nominations, Drake and GloRilla lead the pack clocking in at seven and six nods, respectively.
Both Drizzy and Glo’s nominations come from solo and collaborative efforts. The Toronto rapper is nominated for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist, Best Male R&B/Pop Artist, Best Group with 21 Savage, and Album of the Year for Her Loss with 21 Savage. He is also nominated for the Viewer’s Choice Award for “Jimmy Cooks” with 21 and for his assist on Future’s “Wait For U,” with Tems, with the latter also being nominated for Best Collaboration.
Glo is nominated for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Best New Artist, Album of the Year for her debut LP Anyways, Life’s Great, Video of the Year for “Tomorrow 2” with Cardi B, and two nominations for Best Collaboration (“F.N.F. Let’s Go” and “Tomorrow 2”).
21 Savage and Lizzo earned five nominations each. Beyoncé, SZA, Ice Spice, Chris Brown, and Burna Boy each scored four nominations.
