Nothing seems to be stopping the Lil Nas X train. The 20-year-old–– whose hit “Old Town Road” has been sitting pretty in the number one slot on the Billboard Hot 100 for nine weeks–– will reportedly perform at the 2019 BET Awards.
According to Billboard, Lil Nas X, Cardi B, Migos, H.E.R., Lizzo, Mustard, Lil Baby, Yung Miami, Lucky Daye and Kiana Ledé are slated to perform on Jun. 23. The event will be held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, and will be hosted by Regina Hall.
Lil Nas X’s star continues to rise. He recently partnered with Wrangler Jeans for a capsule collection. Over the weekend (Jun. 2) he and his “Old Town Road (Remix)” collaborator Billy Ray Cyrus appeared at Hot 97’s Summer Jam to perform during Cardi B’s set.
Cardi B has the highest number of nominations for this year’s event, with seven noms. Drake follows closely behind with five. Beyonce, Travis Scott, J. Cole, 21 Savage, H.E.R., Childish Gambino, Ella Mai and Bruno Mars also have numerous nominations.
On the BET Awards’ Instagram page, “something major” was teased, so tune in to the show later this month to see what they plan on doing.
