The 2012 BET Honors award ceremony is scheduled to take place next month here in Washington D.C. BET has just announced the list of honorees.
Via the Washington Post:
BET will announce Monday an A-list lineup for its fifth annual Honors show in D.C. next month: Maya Angelou, Stevie Wonder, Spike Lee, and Mariah Carey will be celebrated next month in D.C. for lifetime achievement to African-American culture, the network announced Monday. Also on the 2012 roster: The Tuskegee Airmen and track coach Beverly Kearney.
The night is BET’s equivalent of the Kennedy Center Honors: A black-tie tribute hosted by actress Gabrielle Union with a glitzy red carpet, VIP presenters, big-name performers, and lots of after-parties. The award show takes place Sat., Jan. 14 at the Warner Theatre.
That reminds me I need to get my press pass from BET. 🙂
