Grammy(R) Award-Winning Rapper T.I. Takes Center Stage for Long Awaited Comeback Performance at the BET AWARDS '10

R&B Singer John Legend to Receive Humanitarian Award

NEW YORK, June 3 -- Every year BET brings you the hottest awards show on cable television and this year will be no different. Hosted by entertainment superstar Queen Latifah with performances by Nicki Minaj, Drake, Trey Songz and Diddy-Dirty Money the BET AWARDS '10 promises to bring the house down!

Newly added to the line-up is the highly anticipated and explosive return of the "King of the South." Multi-platinum, rap heavyweight T.I. will hit the stage in his first, televised performance since his release. BET is pulling out all the stops this year bringing you the biggest and best in music, sports, television, and entertainment.

Six-time GRAMMY(R) Award-winning artist and philanthropist John Legend will be awarded the 2010 Humanitarian Award for his work to end poverty through education.

It's impossible to contain that much star power and entertainment into one night. In celebration, BET will highlight some of the greatest moments from the past nine BET AWARDS in a one-hour special titled, "Smash!! The Best of the BET Awards," premiering on June 14 at 10:00 P.M.* Full performances from "Smash!! The Best of the BET Awards" will be available on BET.com/BETAwards.

Do you remember when Monique did Crazy in Love? What about the reunion of the girl groups TLC and SWV? How about when Usher defied gravity by dancing on the wall? Or Michael Jackson with James Brown? All of these moments and more took place on the BET AWARDS stage! The show will not only feature clips from past shows, but also behind-the-scenes commentary from the celebrities and staff who made many of these unforgettable moments possible. It's going to be an hour that you won't want to miss.

The BET AWARDS '10 will broadcast live from the Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium on Sunday, June 27, 2010 at 8:00 P.M.*
