Annual Must-See VH1 Salute to Hip Hop Pioneers Slated to Tape Thursday, October 2 at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom

NEW YORK, June 23 -- With just days until its star-studded "VH1 Rock Honors" concert event saluting The Who, VH1 has announced the upcoming date for its next A-List tentpole event the "VH1 Hip Hop Honors."

Now in its fifth year, "VH1 Hip Hop Honors" will once again pay tribute to the hip hop luminaries who broke new ground and propelled the genre into a truly global phenomenon.

The music and influence of each of the honorees, to be named later this summer, will be recognized through performances in collaboration with some of today's hottest talent.

Last year's show was hosted by Tracy Morgan and honored A Tribe Called Quest, Snoop Dogg, WHODINI, Missy Elliott, the film Wild Style and Teddy Riley and Andre Harrell for New Jack Swing. The star-studded 2007 edition also featured performances by the honorees, along with appearances by Ciara, Eve, Pharrell Williams, The Game, T.I., Timbaland, Bow Wow, Busta Rhymes, Common, T-Pain, Keyshia Cole and Nick Cannon as well as Chris Rock, Harvey Keitel, LL Cool J, Kerry Washington and Diddy.

We work tirelessly and passionately to attract the biggest stars in the industry, create must-see buzz and engage record numbers of viewers," said Tom Calderone, Executive Vice President and General Manager, VH1.

This fifth edition will reflect the true power of hip hop while promising to deliver our best Hip Hop Honors show yet," he added.

In addition, VH1 announced today that it will televise the Broadcast Film Critics Association's 14th annual "Critics Choice Awards" gala live on Thursday, January 9, 2009 from the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.

This coming July 12, VH1 will tape its 3rd annual "VH1 Rock Honors," celebrating the legacy of the legendary band The Who.
