The 2018 BET Awards is going down next month, and the first group of performers have been announced. Nicki Minaj, Migos, Janelle Monáe, H.E.R., and Ella Mai are among the artists who will take the stage at the Microsoft Theatre next month, and that’s only round 1. We’re at the edge of our seats to see who else will take the stage at the 18th annual ceremony.
