After rumors that the BET Honors may move to another city, it’s set to return later this month on Jan. 24. Wayne Brady will return as host.
This year, the black-tie event will give Kanye West the Visionary Award. (Here’s to hoping Kim Kardashian comes with him!) Other honorees include Usher, Phylicia Rashad, Johnneta B. Cole, who is the director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art and John W. Thompson, a former Microsoft Chairman.
Although the must-attend event will tape in D.C. later this month, the BET Honors will air on the network Feb. 23.
Also, congrats to BET as the after party for the BET Honors last year is now nominated in the 2015 Fab Awards. Vote for it now!
