*UPDATED: Beyonce and Jay-Z have been confirmed to attend the 2012 BET Awards.
Both artists are nominated in the category of Video of the Year.
(June 28) The 2012 BET Awards has already labeled itself as “too big to miss,” but the network’s annual event might have just gotten a tad bit bigger.
With a simple tweet from wardrobe team member Manuel Mendez, fans are buzzing about a suspected appearance by Beyonce at Sunday’s show. Manuel wrote:
“What would the hottest chick in the game wear at #BETAwards? The hive is working working!! #Behive you wont [sic] be disappointed.”
While there has been no official confirmation, it would only be fitting that the “Love On Top” singer attend. Beyonce follows behind Kanye West with six nominations that include Best Female R&B Artist and Video of the Year.
This year’s awards show features performances from Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Usher, Yolanda Adams, a special tribute to Whitney Houston by Cissy Houston and more. Jamie Foxx, Brandy, Melanie Fiona, Laz Alonso, Tyler Perry and a host of other celebrities are also expected to attend.
The 2012 BET Awards hosted by Samuel L. Jackson will air live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday, July 1 at 8P/7c on BET.
