It would seem that names on everyone's lips are Ciara, Kanye and John.
Dubbed the “crunk and B” singer, Ciara is nominated for four awards at the BET Awards (airing tonight at 8 PM). She is up for best collaboration, new artist, female R&B artist and viewers choice.
Kanye West (who was a favorite at the Grammy's) and John Legend are also receiving a good few nods from BET, for College Dropout and Get Lifted, respectively.
Denzel Washington and his wife, Pauletta are being honored with a Humanitarian award, while Gladys Knight is receiving a life time acheivement award.
