And the Nominees Are...

The nominees for the 2007 BET Awards have been announced and you can check out the full list under the cut. Celebrities on hand to announce the nominees include TI, 50 Cent, Tichina Arnold and Robin Thicke. I'm happy that Mo'Nique will be hosting this year. In my opinion, she is the best host they've had since the show first started. Remember her "Crazy in Love" opening in 2005 (Click Here to Watch It), lol. Speaking of "Crazy in Love" Beyonce leads this year's nominees with 6 nods. Diana Ross will be presented the Lifetime Achievement Award and Don Cheadle the Humanitarian Award. The show will be airing on Tuesday June 26th at 8pm...
