This year’s BET Awards will be filled with the usual variety of Hip Hop Superstars, R&B Phenomena’s and A-List Actors – but one thing will be noticeably absent and replaced. The HTC EVO View 4G from Sprint will replace traditional envelopes during each of the BET Awards winner announcement. Viewers will witness this tablet in action for the first time, during it’s product launch weekend.
As previously announced, actor and comedian Kevin Hart will host the BET Awards ’11 with performances by Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Drake, Jill Scott and Lil Wayne.
For more than a decade, the BET AWARDS has reigned as the biggest family event rivaling all top awards shows. Having escalated each year in industry influence with A-list celebrity nominations, star-studded appearances and on-of-a-kind performances, the BET AWARDS has undoubtedly established itself as the gold standard in creating memorable moments year after year. The highly-anticipated event airs live, Sunday, June 26 at 8pm from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, CA and is guaranteed to be the hottest ticket on television.
Divas and Dorks will be live from the red carpet and the Ford Social Media Lounge giving you the all the HTC gadget & entertainment scoop from backstage before it hits your TV screens.
