The first time the comedian hosted the BET Awards back in 2009, it was right after Michael Jackson passed away, shifting the program and performances to pay respect to the King of Pop. Ne-Yo, Keke Palmer, Ciara and Janet Jackson altered their performances and speeches in honor of the legendary singer. Hopefully, this time, the culture will not suffer a significant loss and it will be all fun and celebration.
