*Yesterday (May 14) BET announced that comedian Chris Rock will host the 2014 BET Awards.
“We’ve been trying to make this happen for a VERY long while, and we’re ecstatic that Chris Rock will be the host of the BET Awards for the first time,” said Stephen Hill, president of Music Programming and Specials at BET in a statement. “Mr. Rock is a comedic genius with a rapier wit who is a keen observer of pop culture.”
“Nobody is off limits,” said Rock in a statement. And if you’re wondering who he’d like to see win. He says:
“It’s weird because usually I root for the person whose life it’ll change most, says Rock. “I love Beyonce but she’ll be fine whether she wins or not. I root for the little people.”
Drake, Jay Z and Beyoncé lead all nominees with five nods for Nothing Was The Same, Magna Carta Holy Grail and Beyoncé, respectively, while Pharrell and August Alsina are nominated for four awards each.
The BET Awards will air live Sunday June 29 at 8 p.m. EST

Watch as the very talented and funny Williams, a Daily Show correspondent, breaks down “A Roc Nation in Crisis.”
