Usher, Big Sean, and 2 Chainz to Perform at BET Awards


The BET Awards ’12 just got better. Usher, Big Sean, and 2 Chainz have been added to the lineup for this year’s show.

Fresh off the release of his new album Looking 4 Myself, two-time nominee Usher is set to deliver an electrifying performance. Big Sean, who is nominated in three categories including Best New Artist, will return to the show for the second year in a row, while 2 Chainz will grace the stage for the first time.

They join previously announced performers Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj. Comedians Kevin Hart and Cedric the Entertainer are among the first presenters to join the bill.

Samuel L. Jackson will host the BET Awards ’12, airing live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on July 1 at 8 p.m. EST.
