2011 BET Awards Nominations

It’s that time again! The 2011 BET Awards Nominations have been announced. And even though the list doesn’t have that many surprises, the competition this year looks very interesting. Some of the categories have the same artist nominated twice, but for different songs. Even Beyonce, who just released a new song a couple of weeks ago, was nominated for one of the biggest awards BET has to offer. If that isn’t a testament to how much Bey is loved in the industry, ten I don’t know what is. BET has also confirmed that Alicia Keys will be performing at the ceremony. Kevin Hart will be the host this year.

Enough rambling, check out the list below:
