Complete List: 2012 BET Awards Nominees; Kanye West Leads With Seven Nods

The 2012 BET Awards Nominees have been released. Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Beyonce have received the bulk of the nominations. Kanye West leads the field with seven nods, Beyonce receives six nominations, edging out hubby Jay-Z who has five. This year’s host will be Samuel L Jackson with performances by Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown. Frankie Beverly & Maze will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award, which they so deserve. Nicki Minaj is guaranteed to win best female rapper again, maybe next year she will have more competition in her category. I can’t wait to see the old school surprise this year, it’s always my favorite part of the show. I am certain their will be a Whitney Houston tribute, can’t wait to find out who will be honoring The Voice (aka Whitney).
