Why Queen Latifah Thinks You Should Watch This Year's BET AwardsBy Delaina Dixon | May 20, 2010 | Entertainment
TV DivaGal loves a TV press conference!
That’s why I had a front row seat at this year’s nominee list for the 2010 BET Awards, here in New York City.
Inside the 20th floor nightclub turned press arena, I nibbled on a turkey sandwich waiting for the show’s biggest reveals, which will air on the network June 27. The biggest? That Justin Bieber is up for Best New Artist. No joke!
Diddy – Dirty Money got into the game, announcing that his newest album, Last Train to Paris, will drop at midnight, June 28, after the ceremony.
Then it was time for a little royalty as Queen Latifah took the stage to announce that she’ll be hosting the 2010 BET Awards, and couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming gig.
Queen knows she’s got big stilettos to fill when she steps into the emcee spot (hosted in the past by the likes of Oscar winners Mo’Nique and Jamie Foxx), and got it rolling by announcing the nominees for Best Video of The Year. Check it below.
