THE THRONE, BEYONCE Lead BET Awards Nominations!

BET Awards viewers will be watching the Throne.

Kanye West and Jay-Z's collaboration has five nominations at this year's ceremony, including Best Group, Best Collaboration and two nominations for Video of the Year (“N***as in Paris” and “Otis”). (West earned solo nominations for Best Director and Best Collaboration, giving him seven overall nods.)

But the regal rappers’ project comes second to Beyonce, who scored six nominations, including Best Female R&B Artist.

Ceremony host Samuel L. Jackson appeared via video at Tuesday’s nominations announcement, which saw A$AP Rocky, Big Sean, Melanie Fiona and others reveal the slate of nominees.

In the first round of announced performers, this year’s ceremony will see appearances from Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown, as well as a tribute to the late Whitney Houston.
