BET has announced the host for the 2017 BET Awards this morning (May 24). Actress, comedienne and “Saturday Night Live” cast member Leslie Jones will be the official host for this year’s show that is taking place on Sunday, June 25.
“I am so excited to be hosting The BET Awards this year,” said Jones. “BET was the first network and place where I was on TV – I am looking to turn this whole experience into a joyful homecoming.”
As previously reported, Beyoncé leads this year’s nominations with a total of seven, followed by Bruno Mars with five, and Solange, Chance The Rapper and Migos each rake in four.
The show will take place live at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, and just like in the past, we’re in for a great show.
