BET Awards 2022 Live Stream Free: How to Watch the Ceremony Online

BET Awards 2022 Live Stream Free: This year’s ceremony features performances from Jack Harlow, Lizzo, Latto, Lil Wayne, Chance the Rapper, Roddy Ricch and more, plus a special tribute to Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs.

The 2022 BET Awards air live tonight and this year’s ceremony is taking place amidst some controversy, with Lil Nas X calling the network out for his lack of nominations.

The rapper, who took home a Best New Artist BET Award in 2020, has been shading the ceremony for awhile now, but he took his beef one step further last week, urinating on his BET Award in the video for his new single, “Late to da Party.”

Still, some fans remain convinced that this is all a publicity ploy and think Lil Nas X could actually appear on the BET Awards stage tonight. It wouldn’t be completely outlandish either — the rapper is known for his fake social media feuds and he performed at the BET Awards last year in a memorable, homoerotic routine to “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).”

Will Lil Nas X be at the BET Awards? And who else is performing? Read on for everything you need to know about how to watch the 2022 BET Awards on TV and online.
