Megan Thee Stallion to Kick Off the 2024 BET Awards Show With a Performance

The 2024 BET Awards are quickly becoming more star-studded by the day. On Wednesday (June 26), it was announced that Megan Thee Stallion will join the list of A-list performers slated to hit the stage this Sunday night (June 30), as she’ll be kicking off what BET touts as “culture’s biggest night” in Los Angeles.


With her forthcoming studio album, Megan, dropping this Friday (June 28), the Houston Hottie will be only two days removed from her highly anticipated release. The album boasts features from UGK, GloRilla, Victoria Monet and more. The 18-track effort will include previously released singles such as “Cobra,” “Boa” and her Hot 100 chart-topper “Hiss.”

Currently, Megan is embarking on her worldwide trek for the Hot Girl Summer Tour. Initially expected to wrap this week on the domestic side, Megan added two more dates to the U.S. leg of the tour, including stops at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena on July 2 and PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, N.C., on July 3. Tickets for the newly added shows will be available locally via the rapper’s website at noon. 

As for the 2024 BET Awards, with Megan’s entry on the performance side, viewers can now expect a starry event. This week, it was announced that Will Smith would also hit the stage to perform a new original song after landing the No. 1 movie in America with Bad Boys: Ride or Die earlier this month.

“From his start as a rapper to The Fresh Prince to being a box office king as one of the Bad Boys, Will Smith is truly a global icon, and we are honored to welcome him back to grace the BET Awards stage,” Connie Orlando, EVP specials, music programming and music strategy at BET, said in a statement this week. “We look forward to Will adding to yet another defining night for the culture that is not to be missed.”

Along with Megan and Smith, GloRilla, Ice Spice, Latto, Ms. Lauryn Hill with YG Marley, Muni Long, Sexyy Red, Shaboozey, Tyla and Victoria Monét will perform that night as well.

The 2024 BET Awards will broadcast from the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles this Sunday, June 30, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The show will air live on BET, and streams on as well as various streaming services that offer the network.
