Hill wouldn’t confirm or deny any guesses, though Joyner guessed everyone from Kool and The Gang to Rufus to Shalamar to the Commodores. (We like the Commodores for this one.)
Hill promises that Brown, who announced a new duet with the late singer Aaliyah’s never heard before vocal for a song called “They Don’t Know” from his new album “X,” won’t be doing any onstage artwork. The controversial singer got in trouble with his neighbors recently for graffiti-inspired artwork painted on the restraining wall of his Hollywood Hills home.
“He’ll be doing artwork with his feet and his mouth onstage,” Hill laughed. “Artistic expression comes in so many, very different, ways.”
The BET Awards will showcase it in all it’s varying ways during the show, as Beyonce, Miguel, Snoop Lion, Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole will all be part of the show. And now, BET fans have the opportunity to be part of The BET Experience, a three-day event starting June 28, that offers various perks including admission to several concerts and the BET Awards.
“Everyone has come out for the weekend whether they had tickets or not for the last several years,” Hill said. “So it’s going to be a great weekend.”
