The lineup for this year's show keeps getting better.
Chris Brown and Jill Scott have come onboard to add excitement to the 2011 BET Awards The two artists join Alicia Keys as performers at this year's extravaganza.
It's already looking like it will be a big night for Chris Brown, who has been nominated in six categories. Jill Scott is expected to light up the stage, as the R&B songstress drops her fifth studio album Light of the Sun this month.
Both Chris Brown and Jill Scott have been known to make history on a BET stage! Last year, CB blew the audience away with his remarkable tribute to Michael Jackson, and Jill Scott rocked the televised debut of Black Girls Rock! with her lively performance. The two additions to the performer lineup are sure to make the 2011 BET Awards a memorable night.
Hosted by Kevin Hart, the 2011 BET Awards will also honor Patti LaBelle with a Lifetime Achievement Award. She joins Steve Harvey as an honoree at the event, as he will receive this year's Humanitarian Award.
