BET NetworksThis year’s BET Awards will be hosted by black-ish stars Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson.
The entertainers revealed their excitement for the upcoming ceremony, taking place later this month. “I’m excited for the performances and I’m excited to see what happens with Anthony and I,” Ross tells People. “We work together every week on black-ish, but we have a very different kind of scripted relationship on the show so it’ll be fun for us to play in this way — in a different capacity and to be silly in a different way.”
Ross and Anderson have worked together on an awards show in the past. “Tracee and I hosted the Vibe Awards [in 2005]. That was our first time working together and hosting something together,” says Anderson. “And here we are now, full circle, doing this for BET.”
Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj lead the nominees for the BET Awards with six nominations apiece. Beyonce and Lil Wayne follow with four nominations each. Other multiple nominees include Big Sean, Usher and Sam Smith.
The BET Awards 2015 will air Sunday, June 28 at 8 p.m. ET.
