Jamie Foxx will be front and center this summer.
Foxx, who hosts the game show “Beat Shazam,” last hosted the award show in 2009 – just days after Michael Jackson died.
“This year’s @BetAwards are gonna be a party and celebration all in one cuz your boy is hosting and I’m #BackOnMyFunnySh-t so get ready,” Foxx, 50, quipped on Instagram. “We’re just gonna celebrate greatness and have a phuckin good time.”
In early May, the nominees for the show were announced. DJ Khaled led the group with six nominations. He’s up for album of the year and video of the year among others.
A list of performers has yet to be announced.
