Doja Cat, Ari Lennox, and Drake lead the nominations

Lil Nas X was snubbed, whereas Jack Harlow is performing and is nominated
One outspoken critic of the BET Awards is Lil Nas X, who was snubbed solely from the present nominations as soon as once more. His “Industry Baby” collaborator Jack Harlow, in the meantime, is nominated for greatest male hip-hop artist along with having a spot as a performer. On condition that the BET Awards are “the ultimate platform to showcase the best, brightest, and most beautiful aspects of the Black experience – celebrating Black music’s present and future, and elevating the culture and being a driving force for social change,” Harlow’s snub rather than Lil Nas X is very puzzling.
Lil Nas pulls no punches in his criticism of BET in his single “Late to Da Party,” arriving simply days earlier than the present.
