Prince Will Be Honored at This Year's BET Awards


Prince may have been raring for a party since 1999 (for those too young to know, "1999" is the title track to his fifth album released in 1982), but 2010 might just be a better time for a celebration, as The Purple One finally receives a Lifetime Achievement honor from Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards.

Broadcasting live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on June 27 and streamed live on BET.com, this year's awards mark the 10th year of honoring the hottest stars in music, sports, and entertainment. Hosting by the great Queen Latifah, the ceremony will include performances reportedly by the likes of Diddy/Dirty Money, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Trey Songz-whose own reality show "Trey Songz: My Moment In Time," which premieres June 29 on the network, will have its sneak peak after the awards.

Initial reports also mentioned Kanye West as a performer, but that has not been confirmed.

The BET Awards '10 will recognize the achievements of artists, entertainers, and athletes in 19 categories, with Jay-Z leading the pack with five nods across different categories. His wife, Beyonce, follows with four; so does Alicia Keys. Other nominees include Rihanna, B.O.B., Maxwell, and Monica, among others. Zoe Saldana gets a nomination for Best Actress in "Avatar."

Curiously, teen heartthrob Justin Bieber is in the Best New Artist nominations list, while Disney actress Selena Gomez bags one for the category of YoungStars Award.
