The 2019 BET Awards take place on Sunday, and we’ve got a guide on how to watch this year’s biggest celebration of African American artists, performers, athletes and more. “Insecure” actress Regina Hall is set to host, and Migos, Cardi B and Lil Nas X are among the performers.
This year’s presenters include Lena Waithe, Marsai Martin, Morris Chestnut, Taraji P. Henson and Yara Shahidi. Other performances will feature City Girls, DJ Khaled, Kiana Lede, Billy Ray Cyrus (presumably with Lil Nas X), Lil Baby, Lucky Daye and Mustard.
Prizes will be awarded in categories such as Album of the Year, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Film, and more. Cardi B leads the way so far, with a total of seven nominations across five categories, including Best Female Hip-Hop Artist and Video of the Year.
The 19th Annual BET Awards air live Sunday, June 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on the BET Network. You can also stream the awards show on the BET website’s Live TV feature or the BET Now app – but you’ll need a connection to a TV provider.
If, like so many these days, you don’t have a cable connection, your options are limited – but where there’s a will, there’s a way to watch BET prices. The easiest way is to start a one-week free trial of an online TV streaming service, like FuboTV or Philo, or Hulu Live TV, which gives you access to several cable channels, including BET. The BET Awards will also air live at the same time on other Viacom channels in the United States, including BET HER, MTV, MTV 2, MTV Classic, VH1 and Logo.
Otherwise, BET’s social media accounts, in particular on Twitter, will post updates throughout the night. Entertainment Tonight will also have live coverage on its Twitter, @etnow, and Instagram, @entertainmenttonight.
