BET Awards Description

BET Awards - Awards Show Event in Los Angeles.

Established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network, the BET Awards celebrates African Americans and other minorities in entertainment and sports. The annual event is broadcast live on BET and features performances by some of the biggest names in music. Past performers include Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne.
There are more than a dozen nomination categories at the BET Awards, from best hip-hop and gospel artists, to best movie and sports athlete. The BET Award Trophy was inspired by three words: Aspire, Ascend, and Achieve. The first BET Award ever presented went to Outkast for “Best Male Group.”

Also contributing to the BET Awards’ hype are a slew of parties before and after the show. From block parties to ballroom galas, one can get in on all the action and special live performances – and the awards show itself – with a pricy VIP pass that ranges from $1,000 to $4,000. BET Awards tickets for specific events (not including the ceremony itself) start at about $40 and go into the hundreds of dollars.

The 2013 BET Awards are sure to be filled with star performances and surprise winners. Be sure to tune in!
