History of BET Awards
The BET Awards is the brainchild of Black Entertainment Television (BET). The network conceptualized the BET Awards to recognize the accomplishments of African American personalities in the areas of sports, acting, music and other forms of entertainment. Minorities who are not African American can also gain recognition through the BET Awards. The BET network broadcasts the awards ceremony every year.
Since the awards were established in 2001, the network has seen viewership of the ceremony growing annually. One of their highest levels of viewership was recorded in 2009. Since 2006, the awards ceremony has been hosted at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium in California but this 2013 the ceremony will be held at the Nokia Theatre of L.A. Live.
Rap artist Drake who hails from Toronto, Canada has managed to snare 12 nominations for the 2013 awards.
The BET awards for 2013 will cap off the three day BET Experience which is being held to celebrate music and lifestyle. BET Experience is collaboration between BET and AEG Live. The 2013 ceremony is to be hosted by comedian Chris Tucker. Some familiar names in the list of nominees are Rihanna, Alicia Keys, and Beyonce. Chris Brown will definitely be performing at the awards this year.
