More Stars Added to the BET Awards Lineup; Beyonce, Lil' Wayne and More!

In previous posts I announced Alicia Keys is opening for the 2011 BET Awards and other performers like Jill Scott and Chris Brown were recently added to the lineup.

More performers were just added to this years award show taking place 8 p.m. on June 26th!

It was announced on 106 and Park last night that Young Money's Lil' Wayne and Drake will be performing. I hope Nicki Minaj joins them on stage.

Another big performer added is Beyonce! Not much of a shocker with all of her new songs coming out.

Broadcasting live from the U.K., Beyonce has not announced which track she will perform off her new album '4' which hit stores June 28th.

Beyonce's Destiny Child partner, Kelly Rowland will also be performing, most likely her new hit "Motivation." Maybe Lil' Wayne will accompany her on stage.

Other performers announced on the BET's Awards page is Rick Ross, DJ Khaled and Ace Hood.
