Alicia Keys and the Weeknd Set to Perform at 2015 BET Awards
With the BET Awards set to kick off this weekend in Los Angeles, fans have been impatiently waiting to see some of the music industry's biggest stars set the stage on fire. R&B superstars Alicia Keys and the Weeknd have been added to the performers list.
The star-studded lineup already boasts Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Tinashe, Big Sean, Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj, Ne-Yo, Ciara, Smokey Robinson, Tyga, Robin Thicke, K. Michelle, Jason Derulo, Janelle Monae and Jidenna, Jussie Smollett, Yazz and Serayah from the hit show Empire, Donnie McClurkin, Silento, Fetty Wap, Future, Omarion, E-40, Gary Clark Jr. Tori Kelly and Anthony Hamilton. Plus, Janet Jackson will receive the Ultimate ICON: Music Dance Visual Award.
This will mark the Weeknd's first appearance at the BET Awards. He is nominated for three awards including Best Male R&B/Pop Artist, the Centric Award and the Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award. As for Alicia Keys, this will be her first live performance since giving birth to her son Genesis this past December. This will certainly be a great look for Mrs. Keys since she hasn't released a new project since 2012 album, Girl on Fire.
To spice things up even more, there's rumblings out there regarding a possible reunion between Diddy, Lil' Kim and Faith Evans this weekend at the BET Awards. Faith Evans added fuel to the rumors by posting her rehearsal pictures, which featured a selfie of her and Puff.
It is being reported that former Bad Boy artists including Ma$e, 112, the LOX, and Lil' Kim will all take part in the celebration and perform on stage as well.
This would certainly be a great look for Diddy since he's been in the news doing some very bad boy things.
