Kanye West to Perform at BET Awards

Kanye West

Awards shows are about to be fun again. Kanye West has been added as a performer for the BET Awards ’10.

BET announced today that the rapper will take the stage for “a dynamic comeback performance.” This will be his first major awards show appearance since last year’s memorable MTV Video Music Awards.

While it has not been revealed what he will perform, there’s a good chance it will include his new single “Power” from his forthcoming album, which he performed live for the first time at a private concert for Chicago high school students this week.

Ludacris, Rick Ross, and DJ Khaled have also been added to this year’s lineup. They join previously announced performers T.I., Drake, Diddy-Dirty Money, Nicki Minaj, and Trey Songz. The 10th annual event will be hosted by Queen Latifah and John Legend will receive the Humanitarian Award.

The BET Awards ’10 airs live Sunday, June 27, at 8 p.m. EST from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

    BET award is the only chance that drake & kanye perform “forever” live or with eminem
