Tonight, BET is broadcasting one of their biggest events of the year in their annual awards show, and of course we wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to watch some of the early festivities right now! After all, isn’t this what the network has set up a live stream for?
If you head over here, you can see many of the show’s early arrivals now straight through to the premiere of the actual show itself at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. Tracee Elliss Ross and Anthony Anderson are hosting the awards itself, which recognizes so much more than just the world of music. It often creates a number of big TV moments, and at times there are also some political issues that are brought to the table. This has been a very big week in general when it comes to the U.S., in between the gay marriage ruling in the Supreme Court and also everything that is happening at the moment in South Carolina.
As with every other awards show out there, the biggest challenge with the BET Awards is strictly trying to find a way to stand out. This is difficult given that there is just so much going on right now in the entertainment world, and there are only so many things that can ultimately make a splash as a result of it. At least you do have to entertaining hosts, and a show that features a variety of big-name celebrities from all different fields.
We may have some other updates related to the BET Awards later tonight, and you will be able to check those out over at the link here.
