According to VIBE, BET Pres. SCOTT MILLS said, “The BET AWARDS are a seminal event, the biggest celebration of Black culture, Black accomplishment, Black excellence, and Black potential. Our community, and the many millions who love Black culture, look to the BET AWARDS for signature moments of enrichment, entertainment, and empowerment.
Recognizing the unique role the BET AWARDS plays for so many, and the challenging times we find ourselves in, we know it was more important than ever to deliver the BET Awards in 2020.”
