This officially marks Jones’ first major award show gig, a role that has previously filled by greats like Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Chris Tucker and Mo’Nique in the past. “I am so excited to be hosting The BET Awards this year, BET was the first network and place where I was on TV – I am looking to turn this whole experience into a joyful homecoming”, stated Jones.
This year’s BET Awards marks the network’s 17th showcase. Beyonce and Bruno Mars lead the nominations list with seven and five nods, respectively. I guess we’ll have to wait to see what this year has in store.
