Thicke will perform a new single at the June show
The slate at the 2014 BET Awards just got a little more star power, as Kerry Washington and Robin Thicke have been added to the lineup.
Thicke will perform a new single.
Joining the pop star will be previously announced performers Pharrell Williams, Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Lil Wayne, Trey Songz and Lionel Richie. Kevin Hart is set to appear at the show, as was Tracy Morgan, which seems unlikely following last week’s tragic accident that left the comedian in critical condition and killed fellow comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair.
Chris Rock will host the show, which airs live on Sunday, June 29 at 8 p.m. ET on BET from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, Calif. The “BET Awards” will premiere internationally on BET’s international network on July 1 at 8 p.m. GMT.
BET revealed the awards nominees in May, which include Beyonce, Tamar Braxton, Chris Brown, John Legend, Daft Punk, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj.

Along with the awards show, the BET Experience at L.A. Live will take place from June 27-29, and will be headlined by Outkast.
